Recently we told you all about the 656-page official Skyrim guide / walkthrough, well in this day and age it is no surprise to see that there is a better solution out there for consumers, this is the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Prima Official eGuide.
Like the printed guide this eGuide will help you on your journey no-matter which platform you choose, it will tell you about all of the game’s weapons, spells, perks and abilities, not only this but if help you become a master miner, farmer and cook – oh and you should also be able to understand the Dragon language, forge great weapons, craft the best potions and master the combat system.
So what’s better about the electronic guide? Well firstly it features integrated search, which means you do not have to manually search the glossary for particular items etc, secondly it boasts interactive maps which you can zoom in and out on and easily locate points of interest and collectables. What excites us the most is the fact that you will be able to fully customize a character with anything you want, you can then see the results of different combinations without having to buy / unlock things in the game – there will also be some pre-defined character templates to check out.
The eGuide will become available on Skyrim’s release date and costs $26.99 here, we can imagine hardcore Elder Scrolls fans loading this up on their tablets / laptops to accompany them during their Skyrim journey – however some will obviously opt to discover things for themselves.
We are sure that a lot of this information will soon arrive on the Skyrim Wiki, as for interactive maps, we are sure that apps for iPhone will probably hit the App Store soon after the game’s release – we will keep a close eye and keep you posted if and when we find any useful links.
Would you prefer the 656-page book or the eGuide? We think that a lot of gamers like to own a physical copy of the guide, do you?
