    Bethesda have announced the next installment of the Elder Scrolls series via the VGA awards: “Skyrim”.

    The game’s trailer ended with the date: 11.11.11, implying a 2011 release.

    According to our own Gavin Bard, “Skyrim is in Tamriel and is home to pissed off Redgaurds and Bretons.”

    Good to see something concrete. More info as it happens.

    Cool. I believe in Bethesda, I'm sure it will rock, so I'll just ask for one thing: levitation, please.

    They don't have to search too much. They own id now, so what do you think about id Tech 5? Sounds good enough for ya? :rockout:

    idTech 5 or gtfo.

    If this game uses gamebryo, I will personally burn down Bethesda's studio.

    I can't believe it! I was expecting this to come out in 2012 or 13 but we get it next year:rockout:

    Does this mean that they had people working on it the entire time! Probably during or right after FO3. I think its safe to say that this game will be leaving GameByro Engine, I just can't see dragons working well in it.

    RIP GameByro, you did us well. :toast:

    Can't wait to see some screenshots.:D

    Ya there were past rumblings and indications that there was a team working on it. Not a huge surprise being one of their most successful franchises.

    Exactly 11 months away. :(


    5 years for a sequel could certainly be indicitive of a new engine. New games take about 3 years to develop from scratch and sequels (same engine) take about a year. At the same time, they did have a major distraction (Fallout 3).

    lets hope its optimised DX11 with good eyefinity support, good 3D support (for Nvidia users) and good tesselation support that makes it faster, not slower :D


    and and some kind of neural interface so i can just THINK at it, too.


    good melee controls would be nice too...

    I really don't care about graphics. The main thing I would like to see is more variety in dungeons (less recycling the same basic rooms and corridors) and a main plot that feels like a main plot.


    Both were developed by "Bethesda Game Studio." It makes sense that Fallout New Vegas was outsourced so BGS could get back to their IP (TES). At the same time, BGS was probably getting tired of TES so Fallout 3 made for a good distraction.

    the main thing i liked about bethesda games is the ability to ignore the main plot and enjoy thought out and fleshed out side plots and quests.


    side quests that go beyond simple fetch missions are fantastic... and the feel of exploring because the random rewards are awesome, is what compels me to play (EG, go to a random dungeon somewhere and you almost always have hard puzzle or boss at the end who drops awesome gear)

    Yeah, but that's the problem. The side plots and quests were so extensive that it overshadowed the main plot. It's like "SIDE QUESTS! Oh yeah, save the world from certain destruction too."


    I completely agree there. Two Worlds completely fails on that front which makes the side stuff unrewarding.
    El_Mayo says thanks.

    If prior rumors would be believed this would be way into the future after 4...most probably the Empire has already fallen.

    I hope they actually bother to bug fix this one, instead of leaving it up to the modding community. The community made oblivion bug patch is over 2000 fixes. I couldn't ever finish the game cause of random shit like disappearing key quest goals, mainly those involving interactions with npcs.

    I wouldn't say they overshadow... They are just there to be done if you want to do them. Having lots of sides quests is by no means a bad thing. They are called SIDE quests for a reason in that if you don't want to do them you don't have to ergo the Main in main quest. It all depends on how you play and what you want to do. I personally like to just finish the main quest and then go back and do all the sides, but I understand others like to do just the opposite gathering items from sides quests to help beat the main quest thats just the glory of TES :)

    Considering it would be Skyrim, it would be all snow and mountains and pine trees lol

    Checking the lore though, it seems everything's in place already. 6 named cities, two big counties...and it would be probably be up to you to unite Skyrim once more after centuries.
