Recently we told you about the Elder Scrolls Skyrim manual leaking, now we have had a chance to look through the leaked information and we have found out about hirelings, continue reading if you don’t mind uncovering a few spoiler about how hirelings affect Skyrim’s gameplay.
The image below shows an extract from the Skyrim game manual, it clearly states the following: “You will find hirelings in taverns through the world who you can hire to fight with you. Each hireling has their own combat speciality, and you can give them orders. They can also carry items for you.”
In terms of orders you can tell your hirelings to: wait at a certain spot, use an object, attack an enemy, pick up items and open locked doors and containers. We think that this will speed up gameplay as you won’t always have to carry out monotonous tasks, instead you will get your “servant” to do all the hard work. Also being over-encumbered shouldn’t be so frequent this time around as servants can carry items for you.
If you check out this GamingUnion post you can find out even more about leaked Elder Scroll Skyrim information, personally we would recommened waiting for the game’s arrival as spoilers are called spoilers for a reason – that said some of the things revealed won’t in our opinion ruin the game, just excite you even more about the forthcoming release.
For now we would love to hear your opinions on hirelings, do you think these will add a new dynamic gameplay? Do you think they will ruin the game? Let us know in the comments section.
