VGA 2010: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Trailer


In the classic Bethesda tradition of getting awesome voice talent attached to a very small portion of their games (see also: Sean Bean, Patrick Stewart, Ron Perlman in just the last few years), this trailer for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim features everybody’s favorite exorcist, Max Von Sydow.

Hopefully he has a larger role than Patrick Stewart as we take to Skyrim. In fact, I hope he pulls a Sean Connery and voices that dragon, the one that seems to breathe eels or…space heart air, or whatever.

But if Dennis Quaid* shows up, I might have to bail on this whole Elder Scroll thing.

No, just kidding. This whole game could be voiced by Pee-Wee Herman and I’d still buy it on day one.

*We’re talking about the awful movie Dragon Heart, if anyone isn’t getting this joke. Sean Connery did the voice of a CG dragon and became friends with Dennis Quaid. It was dumb.

You can download this video in several different flavors:

!heru: It’ll be nice to hang out and be the Nord Dragonborn I imagine.. at least they won’t be asking him to closse a bazillion gates to Oblivion. Solitude here we come. (Yes I’m that big an ES geek that I know the largest towns in Skyrim from memory)

I agree about the Oblivion gates. After thinking on it some though, weren’t the “Dragonborn” descendants of the Imperial line? And wasent all but Martin Septium killed in TES:IV? I might be getting mixed up here, but i dont think so…

Btw Shawn, whats your take on the engine? Will they use a heavily modified version of Gamebryo? (much like how Oblivion used Gamebryo, which is a heavily modified Netimmerse that Morrowind used} Or maybe go a different route all togeather? They should have access to id Tech 5 since Zenimax bought id… hmm.

Heru, it looks like Bethesda is building a new engine for TES:V. Here’s the news on that.
