Fans have long been wondering if vampires or werewolves would be returning, and how they might differ from games in the past.

What's with this article? It's trying to sound like they're doing something new and special with it, it's the exact same as before. And stop giving hope of Flight, closed cities = no fly.

Yeah they often talk about the leveling system and radiant AI like they're completely new as well.

Welcome to News. They do it everywhere on the news, BBC or CNN. It's just for people who hasn't read anything about Skyrim yet or the related news

Vampires are exactly the same as they always have been. Good, I might give it a try. But I wish there would be some way (other than only going out at night) to not get damaged by the sun. Like include an item or spell that acts as sunblock or UV barrier and lasts a certain amount of time, allowing you to run around freely during the day.

You know if you take a few seconds and read the article, you might be well satisfied with your sun issue in skyrim.

Kee2715d ago

I did read it. It says this:

"the sun will affect you more the more powerful you get"

Ie you will lose health the longer you stay in the sun. That's what I was referring to.

No way am i becoming a vampire willingly. I hated so much in oblivion that i restarted my campaign.

Hozi2714d ago

lol...all you had to do was use a "dure disease" potion/spell or got to a temple and pray....

I was hoping they'd say "Skyrim has Werewolves" though...

FishCake9T42715d ago

Its cool that they are bringing the disease back but i hated being a vampire in Oblivion. The fact that you couldnt go outside in sunlight made it really frustrating it you just wanted to venture around.

Every morning I wake up is one less day to 11.11.11. And, it is TAKING FOREVER!
