Announcing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

After the somewhat terrible Spike Video Game Awards on Saturday the 11th there were a few things that made the ceremony watchable, and I must say I was extremely excited the second Todd Howard came up on stage as there was only really one thing he could announce and so he started talking about how Oblivion walked away with some VGAs as did Morrowind. So he felt it was a perfect time to announce the newest title to come out of Bethesda The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

To be fair everyone has known there must have been another Elder Scrolls title in the works, however it's always great to have these things confirmed. Sadly the trailer was no more than a teaser and I would imagine has left everyone wanting more, however the key point from the teaser was that there was a dragon. If this means that dragons have finally made it into the Elder Scrolls that is a big leap, which was never a presumtion to be added to the new game.

Skyrim located north of Cyrodiil, is the home of the Nords a strong race who have grown accustomed to their somewhat arctic environment, it'll be nice for the Nords to finally walk around in their own environment, as of course you've been able to play as them in past Elder Scrolls titles, just not go to their hometown.

There haven't been many details released for Skyrim, however you can expect the game to run in a whole new engine according to their community manager, as well as the hope that it's gonna blow everyone's socks off.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is set to come out on the 11th of November 2011, and the platforms it will be available is Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and of course Windows. Fingers crossed that it doesn't slip into a 2012 release.
