The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (E3 Preview)

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a role-playing video game. Within a demo video shown at this week’s E3 by Bethesda Game Studios, the developers of the game, we see the use of a new engine that renders this game to amazing detail. Bethesda has adjusted the gameplay make do for the casual audience. The previous releases of The Elder Scrolls in the series were of slower pace than many other games in the genre, but, in Skyrim, the gameplay is much more fluid. Also, they changed the leveling system to seem like Fallout. Now, it is much more easier to understand how to level up.

The enemy AI is way smarter and have a lot more detail. There are dragons and large trolls that are colossal and, unlike the prior releases of The Elder Scrolls, there weren’t many large enemies that you could fight. The dragons attack at random and can do runs to pick up people alongside shooting fire, making them very dangerous. When you kill one, you absorb its soul and you gain “shouts,” which are very strong spells. Bethesda has made changes with how you hold on to your weapons. It is at a point were you hold on to a spell on one side and sword on the other. You may also dual-wield swords.

The UI has also changed to where the menus are even more cleaner and faster. It includes a new map system and 3D models of every item in the game that you can get that makes it possible to look at any angle you want to. All together, I think that this game will be a milestone for the company, being that we would be able to easily accomplish making an amazing land that we can do anything on.

The game will be released on November 11, 2011. Are you going to buy it? Leave a comment to let us know what you think.
