Game Informer's Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Cover Cracked
Written Friday, January 07, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Game Informer's cover for the magazine's February issue in which there's a 14-page feature on Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, includes a puzzling conundrum to solve on the back. The issue should be dropping onto subscriber's doorsteps soon, so if you don't want to know the solution to the code, back out now.
Apparently, the code ties into the singing featured in the VGA teaser trailer, which you can watch again at the bottom of the page, if you so wish. If you want to have a go at translating the cover yourself, meanwhile you can head over to Game Informer's article on how to do so. For the less patient among you however, here's the solution courtesy of CVG:
By his honor is sworn
To keep evil forever at bay
And the fiercest foes rout
When they hear triumph's shout
Dragonborn for hunger blessing we pray
And the scrolls have fortold
Of black wings in the cold
That when brothers wage war come unfurled
Alduin, bane of kings
Ancient shadow unbound
With a hunger to swallow the world
Hmm... Interesting stuff. But what does it all mean? You can either spend some time pondering and contemplating the lovely poetry, or wait for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which is pencilled in for a November 11th, 2011 release.
