“The Motherload of Skyrim Information” or “Say Goodbye to Your Loved Ones in November”

July 25, 2011 5 comments

Following the The Motherload of Skyrim Screenshots, it’s only appropriate that I share this great post from Gameranx which details, uh, details from the French edition of the PS3 magazine about Skyrim and it’s game mechanics, features and plot.

I think it is safe to say that come the 11th of November, I will be saying goodbye to my friends and family for an indefinite period of time!

Here we go:

  • Once King of Skyrim was found dead, it sparked off a civil war
  • Quest givers can give you either more or less information regarding a quest
  • Taverns will play great role in the game since they will be locations whre players will overhear conversations, start quests, gain information and much more
  • Player can boost all perks to level 100 but can’t get all perks
  • Players will be able to cook, woodcut, mine and blacksmith
  • A settlement called Riverwood can be found in game
  • Some weapons will have concealed effects as long you don’t try them yourself
  • Magnetism will allow you to prevent friendly fire in combat
  • Each settlement will provide an unique feel
  • Wind will effect water stream
  • Dragon encounters won’t be scripted
  • One of the cities of Skyrim will be dedicated to the Dunmer while Haafingar will be the largest port available in game
  • Dwemer Ruins will be available in Skyrim
  • Weather effects will be a part of the game
  • Equipment can be repaired
  • Player can break into NPC houses or silently stalk them
  • Block mechanism can’t be used in combat as long player has a spell equipped to one of his character hands
  • Various different colors, rituals and other features will be added to each of the Nord factions available in game
  • Archers can hold their breath to boost accuracy
  • Ice Trap freezes an enemy when he walks over trap similar to WoW’s Ice Trap
  • Circle of Protection spell pushes surrounding enemies from player
  • Detect Life allows player to detect life in his vicinity most likely similar to tracking spells of hunter class in WoW
  • Fury makes enemies go berserk and fight each other
