Developed by Bethesda Game Studios, the fifth instalment of the Elder Scrolls role-playing series, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is due to hit the shelves very soon and is bigger, better and bolder than ever before.
The new addition to the popular action genre has been overhauled, and has retained the most attractive gaming features of the series – open world and non-linear gameplay – while enhancing the graphics, mobility and virtual intelligence of all the characters to create a mesmerising end product.
An all new, high-tech proprietary gameplay and graphics engine has been developed to produce a spectacular environment enhanced by realistic precipitation technology, vibrant lighting techniques and cool new botanical features, while the cast of characters is much more fluid in their movements, largely due to the Havok behaviour technology.
The Havok toolset further enables real-time interactions between the player and the NPCs, avoiding the irritating freeze mode that characterised interaction in the previous Oblivion instalment.
Together with the new and exciting location – Skyrim – the game is jam-packed with a menagerie of new creatures and features a dual-handed combat system, enhanced spell casting and an improved stealth system, creating a rich gaming environment for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
