Skyrim developer discusses Xbox 360 graphics, scale

Speaking in a developer diary posted below, courtesy of TheGamerXperience, Howard talks about the various development changes the team implemented in order for the game to look and feel as epic as its size.

“We’ve pretty much rewritten all the graphics and the gameplay system, as well as used a new face system and interface system, ” said Howard. “And we knew coming off of Fallout 3 on the Xbox 360, that there was a lot we could still do to really harness the power of it. There is just this unlimited amount of detail we put into the world, from little things like forks and berries to mountains and dragons.

“We want all of that scale on th

I love in my video when the dragon picks up the troll and drops it, the troll didn't know what to do LMAO and it hurts.

they already said themselves that the pc version will be a generation ahead of the console verisons so what are you talking about. it looks amazing on 360 though, I cannot deny that.

Dang i just wish they would show some footage of the PS3 version. I hate the fact that there are rumors that they gimped it due to the recent deal with microsoft.

Anyways if they do a crap job with it on the PS3 i just wont buy it.

30 days waiting for the DLC is no problems.
Elder scrolls are well known for sucking hundred of hours from gamers life so the wait should be easy.

Maybe it's a marketing ploy like EA is doing by only showing PS3 footage of BF3. just taking a shot in the dark.

Well, it's the same situation with battlefield 3 and modern warfare 3. Though, in the end, the games from top-tier developers with a solid background generally come out excellent for all platforms.

It's lovely that they are improving the graphics and everything,
But it's the bugs am worried about in Bethesda games.

This article has absolutely nothing new. We already know about the new facial system, attention to detail, and dragons. Just a rehash of known information.

people who dont know any better may think you meant modern warfare lol

EDIT@ Darkwitness

You are correct sir. I just wanted to clear it with him so people didn't bubble Gank him lol


I am guessing he is talking about Morrowind yes/no?

IrishAssa4594d ago

Yeah...Just agreeing with the guy in the Vid, he gives reasons why mwind was better than Oblivion. Reasons which Skyrim has brought in too happily enough.

NukaCola4593d ago


You have played that well good sir...

Morrowind was so much better than Oblivion which INHO was way to repative and tidious as MW was very diverse. But at the same time the team didn't like MW being so 'alien' and wanted to ensure this game felt more 'classic fantasy'. I think having a healthy balance of fantasy and sci-fi works for the series, but they and I agree, it's funny parts of Morrowind feel like Mars and it's only a few thousand miles away from the heart of Oblivions' landmass.

I thought he meant "Modern Warfare" and I DO know better.

Clearly the guy on the far left does not enjoy being outdoors. lol.

Hozi4593d ago

This keeps looking better and better!

Yukicore4590d ago

I hope this game will make you over think your strategies for attacking opponents, it should have stronger enemies than your level, not world that synchronizes by your characters level. That makes RPG games more fun and i could relax from all the mindless games, and play a real fun sand-box old-school game. This game is gonna ROCK!

Hozi4590d ago

Todd Howard of Bethesda did say that there will be areas you'll get your ass kicked from and have to go back there later when you are stronger.

Tex1174593d ago

I did find it funny that one of the guys mentions Dark Souls.

Im looking forward to Skyrim a ton! Im playing Dark Souls right now and its hard to think of two RPG's that have have such a different approach to the idea of an RPG.

darkvenom4593d ago

11th can't come soon enough!

megacowdung4593d ago

That's why i'm freezing myself until november 11 like eric cartman did so i don't have to feel the pain of having to wait for this game.
