I know most of the folks around here are more space-faring types, but I feel obliged to tell everyone:

The Elder Scrolls V is confirmed!

Yes, it was announced 9 days ago! Find the trailer here:

And the forums are exploding with topics here:

It's fabulous! 11/11/2011 is the date of release!

So, anyone around here excited?

I don't understand tho. I thought part 5 was supposed to be Summerset Isles. I heard about this a long time ago, and a longer time ago than that I heard about part 3 being Morrowind and part 4 being Cyrodiil. And I was right about both of those (only half right with Cyrodiil... look up the lore it's supposed to be a jungle. I used to RP a scholar who collected every book in 3 games straight, just to read them... Yeah, I know single player RP is lame)

IIRC, it was going to be, but about a year & a half ago I think there was info leaked or talked about or something, that suggested that there was indeed a change to doing Skyrim instead. It was a while back.

That's about right I think.

Skyrim is a direct sequel to Oblivion, set two hundred years after the events of Oblivion.

Not much is known yet, as the sneak-peak trailer thingy is up for interpretation - what we do know is that there will be dragons!

Past that, we know nothing - the first information is coming out in the february edition of GameInformer (I think that's the mag, not sure).

IV already needed an imba pc to make it run great...

E5DCM-I921G-7R1E3 - A beta code for some game. Might want to ask me back at it's original site for the correct one though. Better be fast, not that patient here.

I'll be observing from afar.

You can check out their website, which provides lots of coverage on TESV as well.

OK, I feel obliged to share a few of these links around now, as finally information is getting collated to make sense.

The magazine that got the deal has a whole section of stuff on Skyrim here:
http://www.gameinformer.com/p/esv.aspx

Aaaand for it all in one place:
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Skyrim

The wiki has nice collated it all and is updated regularlay. So thar you go! :D
