What is known


Howard is not crazy, but only fulfills the requestfans. Shirley Curry leads the YouTube channel, which is dedicated to the passing game TES: Skyrim. At the end of 2018, when the approximate release date of TES6 became known, she left a comment in which she wrote that she might not catch the game.

“Well, I think it will drive the last nail in my grave, literally. When Skyrim 6 comes out, I will be 88! So, most likely, I will not play, and it remains only to dream, ”wrote Shirley.

Gamers responded with a petition to Bethesda,in which they asked the developers to perpetuate the grandmother in The Elder Scrolls 6. Howard heard fans in the video dedicated to the 25th anniversary of TES, announced that Shirley would become an NPC in the next game of the series.

To transfer granny to the game, Bethesdauses photogeometry technology, which allows you to create realistic objects of the game world. In the video, the developers even showed the process of creating a game copy of Shirley. It is possible that the environment in The Elder Scrolls 6 will be created using this technology, which explains the decision of Bethesda not to release the game on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Note that this is not the first time the gameTES series add a person from the real world. Remember Eric from Skyrim? In the English version of the character called Erik the Slayer, in honor of Oblivion fan Eric West with the pseudonym Immok the Slayer. During the development of Skyrim, he visited the Bethesda office and surprised the staff with knowledge of the game. Because of this, the developers decided to add a character named Eric. Unfortunately, six months before the release of Skyrim, the guy died of cancer, and Bethesda perpetuated him in the game as Erik the Slayer.
