Bethesda details Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's 'Jedi Masters'

Looks like you'll be paying the Greybeard a visit

Bethesda has given some new details on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's Greybeards, likening them to the game's own "Jedi Masters".


The Greybeards are mysterious old men who live in High Hrothgar, who fully understand the power of Dragons. And according to Skyrim game designer Todd Howard, they play quite a prominent role in the new game.

"They've been in the lore before and are the masters of The Voice," Howard told the new issue of OXM UK. "So they've built their temple up on this mountain to be closer to the sky so they are able to tune themselves wit the way of the Voice.

"I don't know how much I want to spoil about it, but at one point in the game they do call you by shouting your name to the wind. You go there to learn from them - what are these abilities about, and how do I learn from them? They act kind of like the Jedi Masters."

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

The title is due for release on 11/11/11 across the globe, on PS3, 360 and PC. OXM earlier released some gorgeous all-new screens of the game online.

OXM issue 70, which features a massive 16-page preview of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is with subscribers now and in stores this week.
