Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – First Gameplay Trailer Countdown

Bethesda has been pretty quiet over the last few weeks in terms of fresh info on the hugely anticipated Elder Scrolls V game, but we’re pleased to say that it’s all going to change in a matter of hours.

That’s because the developer has now started a countdown on the official website for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and they have confirmed that when the timer reaches 0, the world will get it’s first glimpse of some actual gameplay footage – boy we can’t wait!

If you head to the website now, you see that aside from the ongoing countdown, there is the opportunity to download a wallpaper for your PC or Mac computer, although you may want to get a more exciting background than the image shown.

After the amazing game in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, we really hope that Skyrim delivers. In a way, we can’t really have too many complaints if Skyrim doesn’t turn out as good as Oblivion, as the game in my opinion is one of the greatest RPGs of all time. Just as long as Skyrim is there or there abouts will be good enough for us.

What will you be watching the trailer for, gameplay, graphics, or a combination of both? Just over 10 hours to go folks, time to get excited. Let us know your expectations of the game.

Awesome post , I’m going to spend more time reading about this topic


The countdown is wonky – the seconds are counting down a lot quicker than a second at a time, and I've seen it reset itself to the same hour twice now.


This is going to be the ONLY gameplay video of Skyrim that I will watch… If I can stem my excitement for the months leading up to release it should make the experience all the more exciting when I pick up my copy. This is going to be the longest year of my life…


I want them to sort out the controls and animation to make them a lot slicker in third person. Since Oblivion we have seen a lot of games with open worlds which have made movement gameplay really enjoyable- particularly Assassin's Creed, a game with excellent animation. It's probably too much to expect free running, etc, but I hope that is one game Bethesda has considered whilst improving over the rather stilted animation in Oblivion.
