The lights are on
Last week, we revealed how the back cover of Game Informer's February issue held the keys to understanding the teaser trailer. But what about the incredibly detailed wall over which the camera pans in that video? The zoomed-in glimpses you see within the trailer are more than they may first appear to be. The carved images are part of Alduin's Wall, named after the powerful dragon that serves as Skyrim's central antagonist. Alduin's Wall is an actual structure within the game world of Skyrim, and it plays a key part in the story of the game. It depicts a prophecy heralding the return Alduin to the world of the Elder Scrolls, as well as the history of the dragons and their interaction with humanity. Each section of the wall tells a different part of the story, and we'll explain every area in detail. Each of the previous games in the Elder Scrolls series play a part in the prophecy. Later this month, we'll be digging in to reveal more about the in-game mechanics, combat, and technical features that make Skyrim shine. But today we dedicate the following feature to the role-playing and story lovers. Dig in and explore Alduin's Wall by clicking on the image below.

wow crytic stuff is awesome :)
All this info just makes the wait longer.
This is pretty nice, plus it is always nice to get a little more information about the game. Not to mention it's neat to see how they incorporated some of the past games into this one.
So much is being put into this, it's amazing.
This was awesome...but It still seems like its just a tease :(
I can't even begin to describe how excited I am for this game
You guys realize that you are just making the wait more excruciating? You know. I know you do. Evil editors.
I still haven't gotten the Feb issue. I'm hoping it'll be here any day now. I want TES5, and Silent Hill: Downpour info, haha.
I love the Elder Scrolls.
Really cool. I always like to break down things like this for every bit of information that can be garnerd. It's pretty sweet that every game was a lead up to this, I wonder if that was Bethesda's intent from the start.
