More On Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Finally real game details!
Bethesda Game Studios is continuing with it's maddening slow reveal of the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. After nearly a month of fan obsession and speculation, we are finally given more than a teaser trailer.
The Elder Scrolls are well known for their level up skills by using style of game play. Now they seem to be taking that concept several steps further and completely eliminating class selection entirely. That's right, no class selection at the start of the game. So how do you become a mage or a thief? All you have to do is use spells or be sneaky stealing items. That means you are no longer forced to stay as a class you don't like but can change at any time simply by concentrating on other skills to earn them. Every skill earned helps you to level up and unlock perks.
After a while, the game tailors itself to how you play. Upon receiving a mission, the game will automatically set the location for it in a nearby place you haven't visited yet. Level scaling will designate opponents better matched to your strengths and weaknesses. Now, it seems, that the game will be even more different for each player.
Be the Dragonborn and stop the prophetic return of the Dragons.
The cities and towns can now be attacked by the dragons and maybe other creatures.
Combat will be much improved. You now have the ability to dual wield not only with weapons but with spells. Dropped items will no longer stay where left but maybe picked up and used by NPC's. Third person view is improved. Spoken dialogue makes a comeback but conversations won't be zoomed in on the speakers face. Instead the speaker may be walking around and doing stuff.
New engine, better graphics, improved combat and a legendary enemy? Skyrim seems like it can't get any more epic.
That's it for now! Once again Evvy will keep you up to date on gaming news.
