Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim official trailer unveiled

The official trailer has been released for Skyrim, the follow-up to the hit RPG Oblivion.

It’s a fast-paced affair which shows the “dragon-born” (that’s you) facing off against a huge, scaly fire-breathing beast, which is zooming in for dizzying looking aerial attacks.

Some spells are shown being flung, and a bow and arrow is used to hunt a beast, in a number of scenes which show off some very tasty next-gen visuals.

The detail captured in the monsters, buildings and especially the environments is extremely impressive. Apparently these are genuine graphics pulled from the Xbox 360 version.

PC World spotted Bethesda’s Community Manger, Nick Breckon, letting the denizens of NeoGaf know that: “Just to clarify, all of this trailer was captured on Xbox 360. Also, the draw distance is not faked in any way.”

Colour us excited. If you want to have a gander at the trailer for yourself, grab your sword, shield and horniest helmet, and head on over to Bethesda’s YouTube channel (or at the Elder Scrolls website).

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is due out on November 11th, in other words, 11/11/11.

  2. Yes, me too :) I just wonder what they’ll do with the monster scaling (up to your level) this time around…
