Now i hear Bethesda and id are teaming up. What kind of oppotunities does this create for Fallout 4 and Elder Scrolls:V? Because i cant really think of anything. So please help me understand why this team up is so awesome.(other than having 200 developers!). Thanks in advance.
Elder Scrolls 5 + id Question
As Brad said they may use the engine they were going to use on Rage which looks pretty awesome.
Look down the news page an article Brad posted is there somewhere.

Its awesome because iD has awesome tech and terrible stories (awesome gameplay though personally) and Bethesda have terrible tech and awesome story's. If they team up it should be awesome tech and awesome stories, in theory.
Though I just want more Doom from them, prefrable a new Doom more in like with Ultimate Doom/Doom 2 than 3. 3 was awesome but seemed to sacrafice gameplay for atmosphere.
iD was bought by ZeniMax, which is the same company that owns Bethesda. There was never a single point where anyone actually said "we are teaming up for a game". They did, however, mention that would potentially share engines, systems, builds, etc, in order to maximize the potential that their respective companies have in producing games not only quicker, but with a better form of content.
I would guess that the overall gameplay (for Fallout 4 at least) seems like it would improve with id giving them tips too. Cuz i felt that Fallout 3 was kind of clunky. It didnt feel like a shooter, and i know Bethesda isn't exactly respected for their shooters, but i hope id helps them with that sort of stuff.
What other people have said, Bethesda is just trying to get into game publishing. It doesn't necessarily mean they'll be working together at all.
Elder Scrolls 5 with idtech 5 would be awesome, and might be a tight fit.
The big innovation in idtech 5 is for big open environments with tons of variety. idtech 5 was developed for the current generation of consoles in mind, and back when Oblivion came out they said ES5 would this gen as well. Would be a HUGE graphical leap over Gamebryo probably.
One real technical problem I can see. With the stuff they said about Rage possibly being in the 20GB range or something, imagine how massive ES5 would be. 1TB game anyone?
Im gonna need to buy a new hardrive. But i would do it Beth. whats making Rage so massive amd memory consuming anyways? ES:IV and Fallout 3 only took about 1 GB for my xbox 360. I couldnt imagine what would make a game to have to use so much memory. Both games are pretty big. 1 TB would be like 500 ESIV's and 500 Fallout 3. And RAGE = like 20 Fallouts right?
