The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Announced with 100% More Dragons

Elder Scrolls V Skyrim

The best thing to come out of Spike's cringeworthy video game awards this weekend, Bethesda announced its fifth mainline Elder Scrolls game and nailed it to a November 11, 2011 release date.

It's called The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which if the last two games are any indication, means it'll be set exclusively in a northerly province that serves as the series' nordic analogue. In fact that's what the designers call the humans living there: Nords. Remember the bits set in Bruma during Oblivion's opening beats? Like that.

The teaser trailer doesn't reveal much, but the game's apparently based on an entirely new visual engine.

Oh, and it'll (finally) have dragons.

Which means it's also worth resurrecting 5 Things The Elder Scrolls V Shouldn't Do.
