Bethesda Game Studios, winners of the 2006 and 2008 Game of the Year awards, has released the highly anticipated next chapter in the Elder Scrolls story.
With the release of Skyrim, the open-world fantasy epic has been reimagined and revolutionized, bringing to life a whole virtual world that is available to explore in any way you see fit.
The Tamriel Empire is on the verge of disintegration. The High King of Skyrim has been determined to have been assassinated. As individuals stake their claim to the throne, alliances form. Amid this struggle, an older and more vicious type of evil is reawakened, making it significantly more dangerous. Dragons have been missing from Tamriel for a long time but have recently reappeared due to the Elder Scrolls. The future of Skyrim and even the Empire itself is in jeopardy as the people of Skyrim and even the Empire itself await the Dragonborn, a hero born with the power of The Voice and the only one who can stand among the dragons.
Epic Fantasy Is Making a Comeback Skyrim, a reimagining of the open-world fantasy epic, pushes the gameplay and the technology of a virtual environment to new heights.
