Skyrim, up in this bitch.

Bethesda Software tonight announced The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim at the Spike Video Game Awards show.

Bethesda designer Todd Howard took the stage to announce the long-awaited title. Elder Scrolls V will be released on Nov. 11, 2011. Platforms were not announced.

The teaser trailer shown referenced the ending to the fourth installment, Oblivion, likely confirming the rumors that surfaced last month.

Howard told IGN during QuakeCon this past August The Elder Scrolls V will not use id Tech 5, the same game engine currently powering id Software's shooter Rage. Instead, Bethesda has created an entirely new engine for Skyrim.

This is such a bad misconception, even Kotaku or maybe Joystiq has an article about this.
They used the same engine on Morrowind, and it's not that their engine is bad. Plenty of other games have used it and had a quarter of those bugs. They just need to stop rushing shit so much.

Can't wait...

Maybe this new engine they'll learn how to allow you to climb ladders lol...

Yes that's right...the engine they used for the other ES games and the Fallout game...they don't know how to animate your character climbing a ladder.

I played the hell out of Oblivion, but honestly Morrowind was better. I hope they improve upon Morrowind, Oblivion just wasnt the same, not saying it was terrible, just not the same ES feel.
So freakin excited to see the new engine

? I can't think of anywhere in either of those games where being able to climb a ladder would really help.

Technology behind Skyrim

Havok Behaviour
The increased animation fidelity and diversity has enabled Bethesda to ditch the awkward dialogue camera perspective that paused the game and presented you with an extreme closeup of the person with whom you were speaking. Now camera stays in the same perspective used during combat and exploration, and players are free to look around while engaging in conversation. Rather than drop their activities to give you their undivided attention, the NPCs continue to go about their business while in discussion. For instance, a barkeep may continue to clean cups while talking, and even move from behind the counter to a seat. A mill worker chopping wood may engage in conversation without turning away from his duties, only occasionally glancing toward you during the exchange.

Radiant Story
Many quests are still completely governed by Bethesda, but the Radiant Story system helps randomize and relate the side quests to players to make the experience as dynamic and reactive as possible. Rather than inundate you with a string of unrelated and mundane tasks, it tailors missions based on who your character is, where you're at, what you've done in the past, and what you're currently doing.

Bump.

I heard you can assign a weapon and a spell to each hand now, i.e. dual wielding. Also you're going to be like the last of a sect of warriors sworn to hunt dragons or something to that effect. I can't wait, I'm like a second away from preordering it right now.

This thread is pretty much dead, I tend to frequent the Bethesda forums for news but what Woj posted above is new to me. But I'm debating whether or not I should buy a new 360, I know that the people at Bethesda prefer 360's and I'm still mad they never bothered to add achievements for the ps3 version of oblivion. We'll see though.

Elder Scrolls games are best played on a PC, period. If you don't have that option, then I guess it's up to you which you prefer. Specially now since you can install games on the 360 and the PS3 to cut down on load times. I just really hope they don't have shitty loading instances like in Oblivion.
