First in-game Skyrim footage released by Bethesda

Thursday, 24 February 2011 15:11 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Bethesda’s released the first in-game footage of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, composed entirely of Xbox 360 material.

It’s the first video of the game since its announcement back at the Spike Video Game Awards back in December.

Bethesda’s community manager, Nick Breckon, confirmed the trailer is Xbox 360 footage.

“Just to clarify, all of this trailer was captured on Xbox 360. Also, the draw distance is not faked in any way,” he wrote, reportedly in a NeoGaf post.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim releases on November 11 for PS3, 360 and PC.

    @12, Morrowind was pretty much fucked in animations and citizens were stupid also, but story, dialogs and everything else was better.
    It’s 2011, not 2003 so at the Morrowind time it was acceptable.

    By the way, new engine is a dssapointment IMHO.
    While animations are fixed. Graphics is at the level of Witcher 1 which for 2011 is a bit… OK. Yeah, graphics for RPG genre is not important at all.

    but we are talking about Bethesda who said it looks amazing. Who likes to promise a lot and never deliver. (Remember a video with the dog and woman who tried to shoot with the bow? So fake.)

    @6 I’ve got to agree with you.

    @12 I don’t think he was talking about the citizens in particular w.r.t. Morrowind but rather how the game played and the game world and story felt in that game. Oblivion felt a bit more of a step backwards when compared to Morrowind.A lot more streamlined and missing certain factors.

    OT to the earlier topics:
    Thing is I do believe people need to throw structured narrative out of the window when it comes to open world games (not sandbox games that’s a different thing technically). While yes some stories can be enjoyed that way, a closed narrative structure works better for films than for games. I’m hoping this game feels as engaging as TES3 felt. Oblivion felt a little more restricting despite the expanse. A game in the TES series needs to make you feel like you’re in an empire rather than be more streamlined.

    If you seriously think that Skyrim’s graphics aren’t superior to that, you need an eye test.

    Morrowind was way better than Oblivion. And we all know that Skyrim will follow the same path than Oblivion -typical blockbuster formula to target a larger audience:

    * Common mythological background with a huge lack of originality (dragons, whoa)

    * Main quest grabbing all the attention, so that non-hardcore users do not get lost

    * Stupid level-scaling system (yes, a litte different from Oblivion, but still bs).

    * Smaller world map / shorter main quest duration.

    So basically, a product that appeals to many types of gamers, but for all of us who loved Morrowind it will obviously be dissapointing.

    Some studio / producer please follow the Morrowind formula! You have a small but loyal set of fans willing to buy a sequel that is up to the standard.

    @28: About the level-scalling system, it has been published. About the originality, yes, dragons and viking costumes open a new trend in RPGs! True that the other two points are just my guessings -I just hope to be wrong, but I have the feeling that it will not be the case.

    Nothing worse than a graphics snob who pays more attention to the number of polygons displayed per inch and how many excessive graphic cards features are running at any one time over the quality of the art direction, the architecture and the ability to create atmosphere.

    Okami came out half a decade ago, and its still the most beautiful looking game I’ve ever played, and it runs at 480p on 10 year old hardware.

    This looks amazing.

    “Some studio / producer please follow the Morrowind formula! You have a SMALL but loyal set of fans willing to buy a sequel that is up to the standard.”

    You are missing the entire point of Bathesda being a commericial entity. They want the game to bought by everyone from their fans to the guy that has never played a game before. You want to play games that support people like you, make a mod or wait for someone to make a mod that fits to your preference.

    They aren’t going to understand or even fathom how thisn’t the pinnicle of graphies, Erth. To a console gamer this looks stunning. To a gamer used to playing both and PC high end, this looks nice. But it isn’t mind numbing.

    Look if all you ever played on is 16bit MegaDrive, then when you first get your Playstation one your blown away. Its like that. But to me this game looks fine. Really good even.

    What troubles me about the game is what kept me from enjoying that last release of it. It is a bad game.

    It really is an action game with RPG elements like story, large open world, and a fantasy setting. But,

    Where are the stats? Where is the crafting? The in depth tactical gameplay? Where is the distintive char development?

    But OG its all in there?!

    No it isn’t.

    The world, the monsters, the quests, all scale to you. If your level 5 or level 15, the game scales to your level. That ruins it for me.

    Some will call that balanced. I call it crap. I see it as much of a RPG as Zelda. More of an action game.

    All of that being said, it still looks good. It will still be fun to play around in. Enjoyable. Nothing wrong with it.

    For most.

    Just not my cup of tea is all.

  38. aleph31

    @33 yup, I’m aware that small audiences are not the target for big companies like Bethesda, that’s why I call for a sequel from another, smaller studio willing to have a not-so-big-but-secure return to their investments.

    In any case, some stupid idealistic person could expect that money do not drive everything in the world, and that Bethesda could open a new franchise for their blockbuster middle-age titles, while maintaining TES faithful to their principles. They owe a lot to TES and their fans, so it would be great if they keep the franchise more or less pure in exchange. But ok, back to the real world, I know.

    @34: What are you, a console gamer? Ever played Oblivion with mods? Why point your golden finger at console gamers if you’re not even going to use the advantages that were given to you? Which is why i don’t care what the core game of Skyrim will be like. That can be modded and changed. As long as characters and story are good, i don’t care much about the core gameplay.

    Also: If you’re not satisfied with the graphics: Mods. I agree with Michael here. All this graphic-whore masturbating really annoys the shit out of me. Show me an Openworld RPG, that’s PC only and looks better than this.

    It looks ridiculously good, the music is goosebumping good,lol. I love the mist at the beginning of the trailer, the snowy mountains, DRAGONS…that’s simply always a win!!!! Third person looks very good this time around.

    And check out the beginning of the trailer when you see the player running/sprinting down that forresty environment, is that how it looks ingame? Cause i love how wobbly the camera is and all that. Bad Company 2,Mirror’s Edge and KZ2 and 3 have that too. I hope we’ll have that too.

    I wonder if this is PC or console footage.

    @38 You’re mistaking “pure” for “my personal, out-dated preferences”.

    People complain all the time about the gaming’s lack of new idea (which is bull anyway) and the frequency of rehashing and sequelitis, yet when a developer tries to change *anything*, every idiot on the planet suddenly come out of the woodwork to scream foul and demand the sequel subscribe to every single design idea of the previous title.

    Two of your points completely contradict each other.

    * Main quest grabbing all the attention
    * Smaller world map / shorter main quest duration

    Not only is the main quest presumably all the focus (which has never been the case in any Bethesda open-world game, *ever*), but it’s shorter too? How does that work exactly?

    The game is obviously going to have its fair share of optional side quests, and you have absolutely no idea how much of the game’s content that’s going to be. Based on all the previous games, quite a damn lot.

    The only thing they’re changing is how you access some of them. Which is great. It’s an evolution of already existing mechanics, so that not every quest is simply about walking up to a pre-determined NPCs and talking to them. And yet

    And if you want to be elitist…

    [elitistrant]All you little punks think because you played Morrowind that you’re somehow the forebearer of the entire Elder Scrolls franchise. You are *not* the custodian of the Elder Scrolls franchise. Heck, I was playing the original, Arena, before most of you were even born, ya little whippersnappers![/elitistrant]

    Games designs evolves and changes incredibly quickly. We are not living in 2002 anymore. Morrowind is my favourite title in the series to date, but if you take off your rose tinted glasses for five seconds you’d realise the game has dated fairly poorly and some of its design would fall completely flat on its face if it was implemented in a modern game.

    Well said on both points, YoungZero. The modding community plays a HUGE part in making the Elder Scrolls series what it is for me. Even to date, both Morrrowind and Oblivion are being extensively modded and improved. This is why I would never even contemplate purchasing an Elder Scrolls game on anything but a PC – on consoles it’s a vastly inferior product.

    Your self entitled attitude is what annoys me. These companies spend millions of dollars creating these games for *our* entertainment, and *our* enjoyment, and all you people like you can do is whine because they choose to approach a few things differently.

    You’re so focused on all the things they don’t do the way you want them to, that you can’t stop for five second and think of all the hard work by hundreds of people that went into designing these games. All the care and attention put into each character, location, and texture.

    If you want Morrowind, go play Morrowind.

    All the care and attention put into each character, location, and texture.

    That certainly was the case with Oblivion. No wait.

    @55 I think we can all safely agree on the mistakes made with Oblivion. Mistakes that Bethesda has clearly taken on board for Skyrim.

    Sorry YoungZ, for the life of me I don’t understand what your trying to ask me?

    I play both PC and Console(xb360/PS3/Wii/about everything ever made before).

    These days I tend to play more PC games. I am about to kick off the Rift headstart within the hour, when it goes live. Btw, on ultra high that game IS mind blowing pretty. Stunning. And as an MMO it defines openworld rpg.

    But never do I let graphics define a game. The games I play most are Titan Quest, Pinball FX2, Phantasy Star Online, and various others. The systems range from PC to Sega Saturn. I will even toss in a few NES/SNES/TG16 game now and then. Trust me a great game is a great game regaurdless of graphies.

    But, and I say BUT. In most cases a high end PC will wipe the floor with even a new release console game, graphicly.

    I would be very interested to know where that game video came from PC/PS3/or xb360. My money is on PC. But regaurdless it doesn’t matter. Other then Erth is fundimentaly correct. And that is what I was saying.

    Also saying that if your climitized to one system or level of game graphics, and have little or no expossure to anything better, your going to think that what you have is top of the line. That is also fundimentaly correct. If all you ever had was Sega Genises, your going to be happy with that, not knowing something better is out there.

    In the end it is the fun you can have playing the actual game is what is most important. Of course people want it to look nice.

    But you or anyone else can yell be quiet when you oggle about a games graphics and someone else points out that there are better looking games out there. To do so would indicate blinders or rose tinted glasses.

    If it isn’t about graphics, fine. I agree, btw. But if someone makes it about graphics, then that is what the subject becomes and PC vs console, the PC wins nearly every time.

    Some of you folks went bonkers over the video of the game. I saw it and thought “Nice”, but nothing to wet myself over.
