Skyrim bombshells: Werewolves and Cannibalism confirmed

The Skyrim news is coming in thick and fast ahead of the game’s 11.11.11 release date, today we can finally confirm that Werewolves will play a part in the game, which is something we previously debated about here. But that’s not all folks, we can also confirm that players will be able to turn to cannibalism if they chose to.

Let’s start with the news regarding Werewolves. As you would imagine, this is not something which Bethesda Softworks has officially announced, instead our information is sourced from a couple of leaked screenshots. The first screenshot can be seen here, it clearly shows the silhouette of a Werewolf. The next screenshot can be seen here, it shows the ‘Ring of Hircine’, which is said to give you additional werewolf transformation effects.

Again Bethesda has not officially confirmed that cannibalism will be in the game, however this NowGamer article seems to confirm it. They point out that the game’s BBFC (British Board of Film Classification) rating clearly states that in Skyrim the player can “make the choice whether to join a group of cannibals in eating human flesh”.

As you can see it doesn’t look like cannibalism will play a huge part in the game, but it at least shows that Bethesda Softworks didn’t hold back when developing Skyrim. Spoiler Alert: In the BBFC’s details it also mentions that one cutscene will show a decapitation, not only this but you will come across a female murder victim with bloody cuts across her body at some point. Unsurprisingly the BBFC gave the game a 15 rating in the UK.

So what do you think of both werewolves and cannibalism featuring in Skyrim? Let us know in the comments section below.

you can clearly tell that werewolf was inserted from morrowind just by the way it stands so fake and its easy to add fake things to games because people pirated the game and are already probabley working on mods

bethesda officially confirmed the absence of werewolves in skyrim stating they didnt effectively fit into the gameplay. its highly doubtful that within the past 4 weeks they’ve coded them back into the game, solved the bugs, and done so up to the high expectations they had for themselves that originally put them off from the idea in the first place. while you have no proof of the validity of the screenshots, i also have no proof otherwise so my only comment on the matter is that the werewolf silhouette is pretty clearly out of place in the screenshot, which also… Read more »

I think its great that they are bringing back Werewolves!! I missed them in Oblivion and found them to be awesome in the Morrowind expansion pack Bloodmoon!!! I just hope its true and you are allowed to contract the disease, the same as vampirism!!

Werewolves are in i saw live streaming yesterday

In one of the companions/warrior guild missions the player ferkas who accompanys you to retreive an item from a dungeon turns into a werewolve and kills a 5 bandits of the faction SILVER HAND

He later says the inner circle of the companions basically captains etc all havw the power to become werewolves

So i assume later on in the companions guild questline you will be able to become one makes sense

Sorry to spolier but what i saw

I’m impressed guys this is great news. Didn’t Pete Hines say there wouldn’t be Werewolves? He is tricksy!

James Konrad Barden

I think cannibalism is gross, but as a werewolf, it fits! Now, the eternal question… Can we murder entire villages of children and still get away with it? See Fallout for details.
