    The High King of Skyrim has been murdered, triggering a civil war among the province's people, the Nords. Many Nords wish to secede from the empire, which has been declining in power since the fall of the Septim Dynasty 200 years earlier, while others believe the empire is still worth preserving. A prophecy foretold by the Elder Scrolls is fully realized by this last event; dragons have returned to the land, and the Nordic god Alduin rises to consume the world. The player character is the last of the "Dovahkiin" (or "dragonborn"), mortals who are born with the soul of a dragon and can speak their language. It is your destiny to slay the flying beasts and save the world from the evil god Alduin. The question is: Will you follow you destiny, or play the role of another?

    1. Optimize and better the engine.
    2. Make it more hardcore like Morrowind
    2. ????
    4. PROFIT


    I really hope Nerevar is in this one. During this time he is stationed in Skyrim attempting to prevent a civil war.

    No offense, but the whole "new engine plox" is really annoying. What exactly is so terrible about this engine? Both Morrowind and Oblivion debuted with this engine and for their time were top of the line games on a technical level. Both huge, open world, detailed games full of individual NPCs and items. It keeps track of everything going on, even in areas you are not present (a thief can get killed off in a town on the opposite end of the map), and the engine is very open to mods and plugins. I honestly don't get it.

    Yeah 2011 will probably be the biggest year of this generation.

    I just came back from shopping cause I'm flying back home to South Africa tomorrow so i'll most likely miss the Jimmy Fallon Uncharted 3 gameplay demo but this announcement has me stumped.
    Uncharted 3's trailer had me in a fit of pure joy and now this dropping in the same month of November 2011. And now i see Mass Effect 3 popped up also.
    I need to go take a lie down somewhere. Preferably in a cold, dark corner far away from this laptop.

    I'm interested, but Bethesda's engine, or at least their formula, needs to be updated and revamped. After putting 150 hours into Oblivion, I was bored of Fallout 3 after five minutes since it felt like exactly the same game.

    Can't wait for this! Finished 100% of Oblivion achievements (main quest and all guilds).. I probably can't do that with this game considering I don't have as much time as I used to but I will try.

    I was thinking slightly less glitches. I'm not saying the last game was unplayable, I just prefer less problems with my games.

    One more post before I go to bed.

    Firstly, I said the next ES game was probably going to be set in Skyrim, and I was right. Boo-yah! Secondly, I was going over the trailer a eocnd time and ntocied soem stuff.

    In the trailer, the the narrator states “The sons of Skyrim will spill their own blood," and it shows soldiers killing each other. It’s obviously referring to the civil war that Nerevar went to stop. The narrator goes on and makes it seem like the dragons will appear during this civil war. If that’s the case, the ES5 will take place while Nerevar is in the province, and there’s no way Betehsda won’t throw him in there in some way.

    Also, the narrator refers to the soldier, who the dragons fear, as Novak’leen Dragon Born. I have no clue as to who this guy is. lol

    My main issues:

    • Amount of bugs.
    • Quality of animations.
    • Quality of graphics (At this point in the generation, it's looking really dated)
    • Immersion breaking limitations (What's with everything freezing when you're in chat? Other games seem to be able to stop everything else in the world going on pause...)


    The phrase in your post 'for their time' really says it all. That time has passed. Even despite what I've mentioned above, I still enjoy their games for the best part. But. It's time they brought their engine into 2010 and got these basic things right. If they overhaul the current engine and make it into something fantastic, great. Otherwise, as you put it 'New engine plox'.

    Oh, and whilst the engine is open to mods and plugins; so is pretty much every other major engine out there. But that doesn't matter on console as very few games like to let their players add modifications and plugins.

    I just really hope it won't be using Gamebryo again. That engine is just horrible.

    Can't wait for this. I hope it's more like Morrowind though (not holding your hand as much).

    For me, this was the best part of the show. I'm more hyped for this than Uncharted 3.

    How utterly redundant. Bugs are to be expected in a game this size, and is not a sole result of the Gamebyo engine. Animations can always be bettered. Oblivion had some of the best graphics around during and after it's release. Freezing when talking? Like, what, every 200 times you talk to someone it may freeze for a second to load up the dialogue? Does it really kill you that much?

    You're basically saying, "Oblivion appears poor in comparison to more modern games." And then go on to imply TE5 will be the exact same engine and have the exact same problems as Oblivion, despite Todd Howard saying that the engine they're using is massively updated over the Fallout 3 engine.

    It's like people expect Bethesda's Gamebryo engine to somehow be perfect.
