The lights are on
This is the territory where you'll spend hundreds of hours uncovering Daedric artifacts and slaying dragons.
Thanks to the folks at ElderScrolls.net and Lexmirnov.ru, we now have a glimpse at the land mass filled with dragons, wooly mammoths, and trolls where I'll be spending the majority of my winter. Not a ton of details can be extracted from the map, but it does feature nine cities – the same number of major settlements that were found in Oblivion. For comparison's sake, here is an image of Cyrodiil, the setting of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
Though these two maps may not be the same scale, the territories don't appear to be radically different in terms of square footage. I can't wait to explore all the nooks and crannies of this unforgiving, mountainous terrain when Skyrim ships on November 11 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Way more detail on the Skyrim map looks great
Someone 1 starred this.... CURSE YOU!!!!!!!!!!
I paid off my pre-order today! I am going to explore every inch of that map many, many times over.
Can't wait for this!
Between this and Dark Souls I'm not going to have time to play all the other great games coming out in the next few months!
