Fresh Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim screens arrive, are gorgeous

OXM gets the high res goodies

Bethesda has released a bunch of new Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim screenshots, a handful of which you can check out below.


The full set of shots, sent to OXM UK and retail mag Game Informer, include a busty maiden in a tavern and all sorts of grizzly foes. Click through for those.

Skyrim is set two centuries years after Oblivion. The land of Skyrim has erupted into civil war after the assassination of its King, whilst god Alduin arises to destroy the world.


Skyrim itself is a mountainous northern province of Tamriel, the continent on which all the games in the Elder Scrolls series have been based. It houses five cities, as well as smaller townships and expanses of wilderness. Skyrim's wilderness, as you could no doubt guess, if stuffed with dragons.

The epic RPG will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 11.

Bethesda recently provided a few new details on the combat mechanics in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The publisher has confirmed plans to launch a creation kit for Skyrim enabling extensive player customisation.
