Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
 




As a MASSIVE Fan of the Elder Scrolls series (Played all the way Back to Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind)
I can say, It's about time to kick some new ass!


I personally am Psyched to finally hear the release date.

I just hope they looked at Morrowind for this one, the levelling system in Oblivion was shit.



*EDIT*

I didn't play the elder scroll series but i like those kind of games . Maybe i'll give a try .

They threw away the old engine used in the older games, so the game uses an entirely new system which makes it very interesting to me. Well I liked the Elder Scroll games no matter how buggy and all that but still this will turn out to be a very interesting game (no more spasaming corpses if you drop them in the doorway and close it). The trailer doesn't reflect much, so we'll have to wait. It will take place after Oblivion that's for sure. In b4 you wake up in a boat or jail again XD

I still haven't finished Oblivion though, I've kept my save file after half a year of playing I might finish it soon. I am currently preparing for DA2 though and still busy on New Vegas

edit: it is still unclear if it uses the new engine or an updated Gamebryo

Additionally, he pointed out that the upcoming project will run on existing consoles and is built on the same engine that powered Oblivion and Fallout 3. "That's our starting point -- the Fallout 3 tech. It started with Morrowind, we went to Oblivion, we did a lot between Oblivion and Fallout 3 because now we had final hardware -- with Oblivion we had six months on final hardware, so Fallout 3 technically does a lot more than Oblivion. The new stuff is an even bigger jump from that,"

Next Elder Scrolls game... nice!

However, that trailer didn't show anything... :(

Kaze 2010-12-12 10:43

The game is set to release on November - 11 - 2011.

I am personally Psyched to go to Skyrim, as I've wanted to go there since Bloodmoon in Elder Scrolls III.

I LOVE snow, and I hope to see much of it in the next instalment.
Together with some nice Bruma / Viking / Norse buildings and architecture.

This could be a smashingly good game if they just base it off of Morrowind and not make it piss easy like Oblivion (seriously, a QUEST COMPASS? Who the hell needs that, 10 year olds?)

I hope they also get rid of the random shitloot you get whenever you went into a dungeon in Oblivion.
Tired of going in a super hard dungeon fighting for my life to finally reach the ultimate treasure chest only to find inside an old Cheese Cartwheel, some Repair hammers and an old sweaty sock.

Where's my legendary swords and godlike armor from Morrowind?

I was gonna post this last night when it was first announced,but eh.. to lazy XD

They needs to get rid of that whole equipment leveling for random mooks. Running into bandits in ebony armors while I was minding my own lvl 15 business was fucking gay.

james0246 2010-12-12 11:00

So we're going to the land of the Nords. Sweet! Hopefully they do not make it too similar to Solstheim from the Bloodmoon expansion. Still, since I had no idea this was coming out (yet), I am very excited.

Exactly

It doesn't make any sense that Bandits and Robbers that ambush you on the road asking for 30 gold coins should be dressed in full Ebony / Glass / deadric armor that's worth thousands of gold.


That's why I hope they base this game off of the Morrowind game system, where every zone and NPC was levelled.

i.e: You could walk into a cave and get your ass raped by lvl 100 vampires with full ebony when you were just a level 2 in slave clothes.

In Oblivion it was entering a cave, meeting some rats, and that was it

Benoit 2010-12-12 14:57

I'll be getting the popcorn for the impending disaster show.

Aqua Knight 2010-12-12 15:06

The music is too epic for my ears.

Less we forget one of the first missions in Morrowind is to clear out a pantry of giant rats...that can kick your level 1-2 ass :).

But, yeah I would hope a more Morrowind-esque approach is taken in the new game, especially with the side characters. Anyone else remember the little message that would pop up when a main plot character died in Morrowind? I forget the exact wording, but it was more or less, "Oops, Character X has died, now this reality is doomed. Sorry." Hopefully they bring back major NPC deaths in the new game, because that was always fun :).

Haha yeah, and the mudcrabs back then could totally whoop your ass if they ganged up on you.

Ofcourse I remember
It was something along the lines of:
Quote:

With this character's death, the thread of prophecy is severed.
Restore a saved game to restore the weave of fate,
or persist in the doomed world you have created.

And indeed, it was totally gay that in Oblivion you couldn't actually kill any vital NPC's.
I want to reign blood and murder damnit.

And another thing is that the quest rewards in Oblivion were all scaled towards your own level.
So if you were level 5 and got a "super awesome ring"
It would give like +1 sneak instead of a level 50 ring with +80 sneak

In Morrowind you could get legendary swords that, if possesed by you, could whipe out entire continents.

I remember back in the day when Bloodmoon was released, I got my ass handed to me by all the shit that wanted me dead in Solsteim.
After that I went to get the Spear of Bitter Mercy.

With it, I owned every NPC's face.

Good times, good times,

Argonians forever!

Albafica 2010-12-12 15:54

OMG I didn't see that coming! I love Morrowind and Oblivion so much and I really want to play TES V.

The music at the end of the trailer remind the music of Morro/Obli!

Need it!

james0246 2010-12-12 17:24

You know what else I would like to see? Some Dwenmer Ruins. Those mechanical palaces were fun (not that the Ayelid weren't, but I want some variety in the dungeons)...

Jaden 2010-12-12 17:31

I'm interested in this but there are already some things to nitpick about...

Firstly, it seems you play as the "dragon born", with a defined role, name, race, and gender. So does this mean it's a far more plot driven and linear game than the past ones? It certainly limits character creation and roleplaying opportunities.

Secondly it seems the lore presented doesn't fit into the established universe. Like since when are the Skyrim nords in war with each other, and how come there are suddenly evil dragons? And doesn't such a plot resemble Dragon Age and Cataclysm a bit too much?

ZGoten 2010-12-12 17:32

@james:

Some variety in general would be nice. That is the one thing Morrowind is superior to Oblivion in. The world feels foreign, with strange environments and architecture that feels like from a different world. On the other hand, take away magic and demons in Oblivion, and you basically just have a replication of the dark ages.

Sheba 2010-12-12 17:35

They needs to bring back the polearms, their absence from Oblivion made me sad.

YES! THIS. THIS. THIS.

Arbitres demands polearms!

I usually played a Nord and breton, so I'm wondering what sort of interactions my MC will have in Skyrim. (Skyrim being Nord country and all).

Wasn't the final boss of Oblivion a sort of evil Dragon-God?
So it is not far-fetched that a Dragon-God would have created Dragons. They just haven't been around until now.

And I am sure there is no problem with the racial freedom in character creation. "Dragon-born" can be metaphorical, and don't forget how in Morrowind you are actually a reincarnation of a hero. If they go for the reincarnation-card in Skyrim too then your character can be literally anyone.
