IGN: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Changes and Predictions

After five years of waiting, we now have the first scant bits of information we know for sure about The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. We know, for instance, that the game is a direct sequel to The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion – and there will be dragons. We also know that Bethesda has been working tirelessly for years now, creating an almost entirely retooled engine.

Beyond this, however, we're left to speculate. By looking at Elder Scrolls: Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind and Oblivion, we're able to trace a clear line of gameplay evolution from game to game. In this feature, we take a look at the potential changes we want to see and a few predictions too.

The story is too old to be commented.

Here is what I'm predicting:

Skyrim will be Totally AWESOME!!

I agree the game will have improved menus, better facial structure, improved physics, realistic terrain traversal (none of that float-along-the-ground crap seen in Bethesda's other open world games) and better visuals all around. A re-tooled combat system will also be a treat.

Can't wait for this one.

Yea i think the most frustrating thing about the game is that you were walking on a cloud the whole time

All I`m worried about is exactly how the level scaling works.

Peronsally I can't wait for it.. Oblivion was awesome, and the updates to the engine and everything make this a 'must have' in my library.

Ha ha ha ha! Thinking about TES V makes me want to have a sexy party.

@StuffRokz - Ah, sweet internet, how you give us all life and purpose. I knew someone would get it.

Getting it on 360 for the Custom Soundtracks...unless the PS3 has them too...
