New Elder Scrolls V Skyrim details

Source: IGN

Quote:
Skyrm's story is set 200 years after the events of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and the world of Tamriel is in shambles. The empire has fallen to the elves, the Blades are gone, the Nords hate each other, and a civil war is about the break out. Oh, and that big dragon the Elder Scrolls prophesied about? Yeah, he's arrived, too. Players will take control of the last remaining Dragonborn, a dragon hunter anointed by the gods to help fend off the threat.

Bethesda's newest title features a brand-spanking new engine where every object in the game now casts a shadow as well as improved draw-distances. Textures are sharper and more detailed and the environments are livelier. There's also the addition of a HUD-less first-person view and "improved" third-person camera option.

There will be five massive cities that span Skyrim's environment, which ranges from frozen tundra to rocky mountain tops. There is also new wildlife, such as Sabre-toothed Cats and Wooly Mammoths.

The combat is getting a bit of an overhaul, too. Players will be able to equip any weapon or spell to either hand at any time and even duel wield two of the same weapon. A new customizable menu is being added to help swap load-outs easily in battle.

Bethesda has also done away with the character class system and reworked the game's leveling mechanic. Players' skills will level up the more they are used, contributing to your overall level growth. "Raising one skill from 34 to 35 is going to level you faster than raising one from 11 to 12," Bethesda designer Todd Howard told the magazine. Players can also level pass 50, but it becomes much slower after that point.

The team has also added Fallout 3's perk system, where each new level gained allows players to add special abilities to their character, including increase in damage to dagger stealth attacks or allowing your mace to ignore enemy armor.

Skyrim's NPC conversations are a lot more realistic. Aside from including even more voice actors, the AI-controlled characters will actually move about and continue on with the activities they were doing before being interrupted. Towns also include more activities to do, such farming, mining, woodcutting and cooking.

Bethesda also revamped the game's menu system. Howard said the team used Apple's iTunes as inspiration and direction. Players will be greeted with a compass-style overlay with four options: Skill, Inventory, Map, and Magic. Weapons and spells can be tagged as a 'favorite' for quick selection. Every item is a 3D object than can be viewed and examined.

Check out the latest issue of Game Informer for additional details.

Skyrim is set for release on November 11, 2011 for Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3.

I think everyone does, it will be worth the wait tho (knock on wood).

I get a few games early as my cousin has a mate that can get them (must be a manager or something) so hopefully i can get this early. It would only be like 2-3 days early mind you.

There is an excellent article / coverage on this game in the latest Game Informer magazine. I love Oblivion, but this one may make a stand against it, or come close. Time will tell!

Oblivion is the one game from the beginning of the 360 lifespan that I still play on a regular basis. I'm hoping Skyrim will keep me busy for more than 5 years.

I just read the Game Informer article and I am more pumped than I thought I could be. They seem to really listen to their fans, something other companies seem to forget about. I really like the new leveling system on paper. It seems it will be better than Oblivion's and make your character unique everytime

great frozen tundra, snowy mountain tops, the world is in shambles.

ive had to deal with this bleak bland desolate wasteland setting for almost 6 years now, playing the fallout games, waiting for a new elder scrolls to come out so i can get back to the fantasy setting, with green grass and blue skies, now i get to hear that they are making skyrim more like fallout, great.

maybe im done with bethesda...

If you look at other screenshots, and read about the game, there is supposed to be a multitude of different landscapes, similar to Oblivion, plus i dont think a civil war means shambles, there will still be great fantasy buildings and cities, but hopefully the "upcoming" in-game footage will tell us more, but i would never count out bethesda
