First Gameplay Footage Revealed In New Skyrim Trailer

To say that Bethesda's upcoming RPG epic The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is highly anticipated would be an understatement. Our coverage of the game, beginning with our cover story, drew unprecedented interest from our readers. Now, after the long wait, we're happy to be able to show you a new trailer for the game -- one that gives us a first look at gameplay, but also a glimpse of the game's dragons.

In the trailer, you'll get a good look at gameplay, particularly combat, which mixes traditional weapons like sword and shield with powerful magic. Listen close, and you'll even hear the game's protagonist -- or Dovahkiin -- emit a powerful "dragon shout." Oh, yes...the dragons. They look amazing, especially when flying around the grand vistas and ruins that Bethesda has created. If you're anything like us, this just made your day.
