Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - "That boy loves dragons..."
I've been seeing a lot of dragons lately, I'm retreading through Demon's Souls at the moment and I also played the Dragon Age II demo, both of which feature the fire breathing mythical reptiles in abundance. Today, Bethesda have suddenly released a new trailer for the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. I don't usually post trailers for the sake of trailers but after the initial teaser trailer that was unveiled at the VGA awards in 2010 this new trailer reveals in game footage for the first time. Needless to say, the game looks utterly fantastic, the graphics look highly evolved from the Oblivion/Fallout engine. The snowy landscapes look sublime, the character models look more human and dragon combat looks exciting. I'm wondering whether the dragons will function in the same way as the Oblivion Gates in the last game or will they function like Big Daddies boss fights in Bioshock? Anyway, it all looks good and gamer geeks everywhere are going to be speculating this all over the internet. This may just be the most anticipated game of 2011 now.
