Skyrim Vs Battlefield 3: Bethesda’s live action trailer puts EA to shame

By Alan Ng - Oct 24, 2011

With just over two weeks to go until the global release date of Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, it looks as if Bethesda has one last treat for gamers, and my word this is pretty spectacular. The developer has just unleashed a live-action trailer for the upcoming RPG, and we have to say that it puts a recent EA FPS live-action trailer to shame.

Yes, you all know what we’re talking about – a live-action trailer that EA DICE released for Battlefield 3 just a few days ago that had us all pumped up and in awe of the mix between live-action and gameplay that Battlefield 3 included in the trailer – then came along Bethesda with their effort.

We have just watched it, and to say it’s good is an understatement – it is fantastic, regardless of whether you are an Elder Scrolls fan or not. During the clip we see an Elder Scrolls-like town fleeing from an incoming dragon, except one man who refuses to move – Dragonborn, who opts to take the dragon on with his trusty blade in hand.

In true-Bethesda fashion, an epic orchestrated music track accompanies the footage to add to the intensity of the situation, and coming in at just 1 minute in length – it brilliantly leaves the viewer wanting to see more.

This may be seen as slightly harsh for those that enjoyed EA’s Battlefield 3 live-action trailer, but we have to say that Bethesda has well and truly outdone them on this occasion – would you agree? The last scene showing Dragonborn and the dragon is particularly special and almost looks as if it is in-game footage – we can’t actually tell but it really seems like it.

Check out the video for yourself below and prepare to have your mind blown – We’ve added the Battlefield 3 live trailer below as well just for fun. On a side note you can check out our earlier debate on whether Skyrim has been made to be more easier than Oblivion this time around.
