Skyrim’s Dark Brotherhood lair teased in new concept video

As we countdown towards the global release of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda has just released another teaser video for the game, but this one has a slight twist to it as it shows some of the concept art that Bethesda has designed various aspects of the game’s environment on.

Once again, it is another truly inspiring video from Bethesda and fans will be as equally happy hearing the included soundtrack to this latest clip as well as the new concept art for the game – check out the video below to see what we mean.

Bethesda has taken some of the key environments that you’ll visit in Skyrim and shown how their in-game appearance looks, taken from their concept art which the area was first imagined as. We see glimpses of the concept art behind Azura’s Shrine that is once again featured in the game, but we also see another Dark Brotherhood teaser that will excite fans for sure.

If you skip to the 0.43 mark of the video below, you’ll see a concept image showing a member of the popular assassin’s guild and if you continue watching, you’ll see how this image has been recreated in game. As far as we know, this is one of the first glimpses of the Dark Brotherhood lair and although you may have seen teases of this in the past, we’re guessing many of you haven’t seen this image in particular.

It looks pretty mouthwatering as you expect and an instant reminder of how the lair looked in Oblivion – there are definite similarities with the stony walls which could drop a hint that it is once again featured underground, like the Dark Brotherhood lair in Cheydinhal in Oblivion. We’re guessing that the large skull crest that you can see behind the female assassin is the main entrance to the lair, although it could be serve as access to another key part of the lair – we’ll have to wait and see.

We would have to say that the best part of this video, isn’t the concept art and new footage, but actually the music included with it. There is something special about Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls music, and they always seem to nail it when it comes to picking the right music for the content that they wanted to show. Those of you who have played Oblivion and have heard the music as you’re roaming around will know what we mean here.

Check out the video below and give us your thoughts on it. How important do you value the Elder Scrolls music as opposed to gameplay?
