Game Informer's monopoly on Elder Scrolls news
still rages on. Yesterday we were given a look into the technology powering The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
. The new "Creation Engine" sounds like a powerful beast, lotta detail, lotta expanse and probably a ton of editing capabilities through the "Creation Kit". Modders will be pleased. Then there's the Radiant AI, which sounds really exciting. Very realistic. Should be a new level of immersion for the series. Also, the Havok Behavior animation tool is said to make the stiff, robotic character movements from Oblivion and Fallout 3 a thing of the past. And finally, the Radiant Story system is probably the most interesting part of it all. It's a conditionalizing mechanic that Todd Howard claims will make every little detail of the gameplay experience different from the last. That's a big statement. Hope it turns out. I love a little diversity in my WRPGs.
But hey, that's not all. Today we got a time-lapse video featuring the creation of some concept art. If your into that artsy kinda stuff, check it out
. Now me personally, I was enjoying listening the background music. That's some of Jeremy Soule
's new stuff for Skyrim playing. Definitely got me pumped. I highly recommend viewing that video for all the fans of the Elder Scrolls' game soundtracks.
