Skyrim DLC Teased

Skyrim: Dawnguard

Skyrim's soon to be unveiled DLC now has a name: Dawnguard. This teaser image is, as of this writing, the only available information on the DLC. That said, this elusive content pack is purportedly further along in development than we may think, and is slated to be released sometime this summer. Dawnguard will be a timed exclusive on the Xbox 360.

Expect further information, up to and including a full reveal, at E3 next month.


Skyrim: Live Action Trailer


Bethesda has just released a new live action trailer for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Featuring a familiar looking dragon, and the game's main protagonist, Dovahkiin, this trailer builds the already high level of anticipation for this game to a near fever pitch. If the Elder Scrolls franchise were ever to make the jump from games to the silver screen, we imagine the end result would look a little something like this. For your viewing enjoyment, you can check out the new trailer below:

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released on November 11, 2011, for the Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3 platforms.


Chicken Narks in Skyrim?


While testing their new Radiant Story game engine in Skyrim, Bethesda discovered an interesting bug. Crimes were being reported to the guards where no person had seen the deed. It was later found that chickens had been narking on players. This funny bug is being worked out right now by Bethesda, but undoubtedly the modding community will enable players to put the narking chickens back into the game.

Skyrim's New Leveling System

Bethesda has been working hard on the fifth installment in The Elder Scrolls series for a while now. They've developed a new game engine which looks great, but they've also decided to go away from the leveling system used in both Morrowind and Oblivion. The level cap is no longer set by primary skills. Every time a player progresses to a new level of one of the many skills his level goes up. Todd Howard from Bethesda said, "There’s no level cap. there’s no mathematical level cap, But it’s however it works out, we don’t set it… Leveling is faster. if oblivion was a level 25 game this is level 50." Commenting on the skills that characters have to grind for Howard said, “we’ve solved most of that” and “got rid of some skills like Athletics and Acrobatics. Who makes a character that is like “I am someone who doesn’t run?”
