Bethesda’s Todd Howard has said The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is as much an improvement over Oblivion as Oblivion was to Morrowind.

“I’d say it’s about the same,” Howard said in an interview published in the latest issue of PC Gamer, as reported by AE Portal.

“The number of gameplay changes and things like that are probably on the same level.”

Having said that, in terms of graphics, engine and tech improvements, Howard isn’t as willing to commit.

“I don’t know that I would say it’s as large a leap, just because the technology gap between Morrowind and Oblivion was greater,” he explained.

Skyrim, the fifth core entry in The Elder Scrolls, releases on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11.
