Bethesda Unleashes 20 Minutes Of Gameplay

Betheda realizes that not everyone was able to check The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim out at E3, so they've released footage of that demo today. It's an extended look at the game's world, with about 20 minutes of gameplay footage, including exploration and plenty of combat.

The demo has been split into three parts, which you can check out below. After you've watched it, read what Joe took away from it when he saw it in June. The game is due out on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on November 11.

  • That was a rough 20 minutes... I am so soar now. Guess my girlfriend will have to wait...

    *edit* On a more serious note, I can't wait for this game. I do understand that every entry in this series has streamlined the gameplay, but that's something I'm actually for. I want the menu's and armor to be easy to handle, along with spells and the like. The amount of text in a Elder Scrolls game rivals that of modern literature. The musical scores of Oblivion and Morrowind combined could captivate anyone. The sheer beauty of every entry is astounding. Along with that, the connectivity of the community you take part in is immense.

    As you can see, I'm paying $150 for this game. Every dollar is well worth it. Skyrim has my vote for GOTY because Todd Howard has settled for nothing else but pure greatness. I trust this team more than any other software production company in the world.
  • ... must... stay... sane. And I'll literally be spending hours in the inventory menu just looking at everything.
  • just give this game to me now! i'll skip gears 3, batman, and uncharted 3. i don't care. just let me play this already. every other game is going to seem like complete crap compared to it anyway. i can not wait for 11/11/11
  • Thanks Jeff told Phil but he seems to not have been there. I wonder if the Dovakhiin shouting at the end was done by Dovakhiin himself or the Greybeards? This game in my opinion will win most of the GOTY awards. (Note I said opinion.)
  • *drools*
  • Mod

    Wow...that was amazing...why is november so far away!?! :)

  • Dare I watch!?

  • Mmm......

  • Awesome.

  • Not a day one purchase but definitely within November. I need a new rpg but I am not playing anything until i complete Skyward Sword.
  • Mod
    this does not make a patient gamer.
  • After watching these videos, my PS3 pimp slapped me and demanded to know why I don't have this yet. Told it it didn't come out yet,...I got slapped again and it said that was no excuse.
  • Why must they tease us so?


  • Made my Monday...

  • woahhhhhhh

  • just held me over until November with this

  • Take my money!
  • Greatest game ever made and it hasn't even been released yet. Also, that was some of the coolest pre-release gameplay footage that I've ever seen.
  • WOW!  That was .......AAAAAWESOME!
