Skyrim — for fans of RPGs, it’s by far the biggest release of the year, a fully fledged monstrosity of a game. Now, the wait is almost over. On Thursday you’ll finally be able to traverse Bethesda's incredibly deep world of Skyrim, and lose yourself in a game unlike any other.
Set 200 years after the events of Oblivion, you must save the world from the prophesied Dragon God, a beast that threatens to destroy the world, whilst navigating a world cast into turmoil post the assassination of Skyrim’s King.
The incredible non-linear gameplay that the Elder Scrolls series is lauded for returns, played out in one of the most expansive and visually startling game worlds ever created.
Elder Scroll V: Skyrim is available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It's out now.
