Skyrim Lore & More

Original Teaser Trailer Breakdown

New Engine Info


Hey, Sephiroth, TL;DR nub! Fine. At least read this:

So Lets discuss anything about Skyrim. I think a good hot topic will be about the New Engine, as this is the first departure from the Gamebryo engine in 6 years 7 years. Its been used since Morrowind. It is also interesting to see a release date of...11-11-11. It could mean something, but it probably doesn't mean anything. Who knows. The change of land is also really cool, as the temperate zone that is Skyrim is different than everywhere else; snowy in some areas, warm and familiar (ala Morrowind and Oblivion) in others. If you have any things to add or edit, just PM me or post it and I'll be sure to edit it. This also applies if there are typos in this post, I miss some things sometimes.

Alrighty. Have fun guys and gals.
Hoping to get a new Signature (with matching avatar) soon. :D

In the meantime...Steam username: )I'll rewrite it later (add me if you want)

I'm pumped. I played Oblivion and loved it, I heard Morrowind was better but I never tried it. I hope this game has a more "barbaric" feel to it, though I'm not sure how to describe that.

To moderators: If you deem this a replica thread to the one currently posted, you may lock this. I just thought it would be cool to start an official discussion thread, since the original author hasn't made a return from the old one. So I thought making a more informative thread to get discussion going would be okay. Again, if its not alright, you can lock this. Thanks for reading. :)


I was the author of the other thread, and you can use this one instead. I know that you'll have more information and will get the new information faster than I can, because I'm lazy :razz:

Anyways, I'm super excited about everything about this game, except for the release date that's 11 months away :(

Ugh I had the first thread <_< You can do this one though, I'll probly be way behind on updating everything. I'm super excited for it! But, we have to wait 11 months :(


Ah, there you are! Sorry, I haven't seen you on for a little while, I had noted that you had the first thread. But thanks for letting this thread be. :)

It is, of course, going to be a very long, tedious wait of 11 months. But I think I can endure it, as long as they bring the screenies soon. :D

I'm imagining something like the Solstheim region of Morrowind. Frozen forests, deadly arctic wildlife,, bears, beers, and [bleep]ING VIKINGS.
Truly a manly region.

I've never played Morrowind either, but I always figured people saying it's better than oblivion is just nostalgia.

I also always lol'd at the complaints that Oblivion didn't have that same free feel as Morrowind because of the auto travel option, and it needs to be taken out. You can still walk between towns, the option is still there not to auto travel, so stop complaining and start walking, I enjoyed just walking and enjoying the graphics of oblivion sometimes, especially since I had the all natural mod, so it looked amazing. They're the kind of people who complain McDonalds makes them fat, but still eat there 4 or 5 times a month.

Well, I could imagine this, but the tweets say otherwise. That's from Bethesda and some of the Staff. I mean, they *could* just being using an extremely updated Gamebryo engine, as I originally thought, but if you read the new engine info from the staff--some things say otherwise. :mellow: But who knows? As I have said, I'll update it with new news as it comes. :)

If it's on Gamebyro I don't care. I'll be able to mod the hell out of it and it'll look better then 95% of the other games there. :thumbup:

If they're taking any advice for when they made Fallout 3 (i.e. taking out psychic guards, having mobs that weren't scaled), then no, probably not. Especially with all of the complaints from the gaming community post-release of Oblivion.

Please, no! :ohnoes:


I think we'll be fine, all things considering. Don't worry about it too much. Besides, Bethesda's in house team is developing Skyrim, and Zenimax has a dedicated Online studio iirc...called Zenimax online.
