Shirley Curry is your new companion in Skyrim
“He lives in a cozy little cabin called Brightwood, in the mountains east of Drelas.”, the modders explain. “Be there when he’s not adventuring with you. This cabin also doubles as a home for the playersas it has almost all the artisan stations and ample secure storage space. There are some Easter eggs scattered throughout the house that longtime Shirley fans can recognize. ”
Characterized by being a character that I will have more than one story to share with the players, we can call her to come with us using a horn found in the player’s bedroom at Shirley’s house. “When you select it from your inventory, this will call Shirley to your side, in a semi-immersive way. “In addition, it arrives accompanied by unique objects: it has three completely new custom weapons, and they’ve included a version of Shirley’s dress that players can wear in-game as well.
Shirley Curry will also be in The Elder Scrolls VI
It all started when Pete Hines, vice president of Bethesda, announced that the launch window of The Elder Scrolls VI he was still a long way from the players. “I guess that puts the nail in my coffin,” Curry wrote. “When published Skyrim 6, I will be 88 years old! So I probably won’t play it “. That’s when the players they arranged for Curry to appear in the title.
In this way, Bethesda itself announced months later that it would include Shirley Curry as an NPC in the next The Elder Scrolls VI, at the request of the gaming community. “This means a lot to me because I would like very much that in the future people play with my character in a future title of the saga The Elder Scrolls“Curry herself appreciated.
