Free official Skyrim map app available now

Monday, 20th February 2012 23:51 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Prima has released an official map app for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, available now on the US App Store.

As detailed on the Bethesda Blog, you can grab the base app for free; it shows the full Skyrim map including the nine holds, and can be zoomed to 3200%.

You can drop custom pins, search, toggle points of interest, and view screenshots of locations.

If you want a little more detail, you’ll have to break out the in-app microtransactions, which add in your pick and mix of more than 160 interior maps, 350 primary locations, 200 secondary locations and over 1,000 additional points of interest.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Not available in the UK? That’s always a nice idea.

    @1, That just means you’re spared another microtransaction crap fest.

    Who spends money on this sort of thing?

    Not as big of a deal as you hoped people.

    To unlock anything on the App beyond where the capitals for the Holds are require you to pay money.

    To fully unlock the App’s features would require at least 20 to 30 dollars.

    Think of it as more of an interactive strategy guild for people who never heard of Wikis.

    Also, the App crashed a lot and would not sync with servers. But that could be seeing everyone is checking it out.

    I do feel the way this article is written is misleading seeing virtually all the features they list are paid features.

    In the free version, the only realfeatures is: “Place a pin of the map” and “Show capitals of the Holds”. Everything else is $0.99 a pop

    This is cool… And by cool I mean not!

    If it was free owever (like this Jager and redballs I have right now) it would be awesome! I love you Todd Howard, but not right now, not after this!
