  1. At the 0:05 second, I knew the unveiling of Elder Scrolls 5 was imminent when Todd Howards face appeared back on here a couple of weeks ago and then all the Elder Scrolls IV Mods started getting recognized. And plus when I saw the monks, the first thing that popped in my head was elder scrolls.

  2. The announcement of Elder Scrolls V was a joyous enough moment to make me forget the agonizing disappointment I felt watching that utterly melodramatic and overserious trailer for the new SSX game…

    Thank you, Bethesda!

  3. I havnt been this excited since Fallout:New Vegas was anounced inFact since morrowind was anounced all those years ago. Todmeister’s the man! I Hope they do a super cool Collectors edition. with some awesome stuff much like the Septim with the special edition of oblivion.

  4. Finally! Thanks. And Skyrim – that’s perfect. I’m myself from northern area and viking lands so I’ve always liked (and played) a Skyrim char, so this is spot on. Hope it’ll be bigger then Oblivion was, large and mysterious land is the best. So, thanks again Bethesda.

  5. I got a chill when, in the trailer, the narrator says, “after the time when Oblivion opens.” I thought it may have been a ES announcement before, but that line made me sure!

  6. I was watching the VGA awards like man this sucks like usual. Then they announced Mass effect 3 and i was jumping for joy ANNND then they announced Skyrim…my head asploded. 2011 cant come fast enough.

  7. I hope we won’t wait 11.2011 to get that powerful music

    please, like they did for deus ex 3, share the trailer music for fans !!!

  8. My body still gets all tingly seeing that video…even after the 30th time lol. I can’t wait!!! I can only hope my computer can handle it by the time it comes out lol.

  9. I am thrilled to know that you guys are making another elderscrolls game. sense Ive played Morrowind for the Xbox, I fell in love with the game. I just want to ask for something, please please please make the game at least 2 player, even if it has to be over xbox live, or a system link. That would be the coolest thing ever. Me and my girlfriend have been talking about how cool that would be if we could play oblivion together. I know that game is still in development, but I am psyched about this. please…. 2players.

  10. TES is a single player series and I think it’s safe to say it will remain so. They have always focused on a killer single player scenario without having the distraction of having to make something for multiplayer as well. Bethesda has time and time again emphasized the fact that this is a single player experience and the fans have supported them in this. So don’t count on it there are plenty of morps and mmorpgs out there. TES does not need multiplayer IMO.

  11. You guys have been hiding this game since forever so that it won’t overshadow your other games. hahaha I knew it.

    A lot of expectations from you guys. Oblivion is BIG. This one should be bigger.

  12. Awesome, can’t wait for Skyrim!

    By the way, can somebody answer: Is it illegal to download Deluxe version of Arena? I mean, sure, Arena was released for free, but it was a floppy version, not CD Deluxe edition.

  13. The second i saw the trailer i knew! My hands are still shaking, my blood pumping, and i feel very hyperactive even after i watched the trailer like a hundred times!!!!!!! Can’t wait to explore those creepy dungeons full of monsters where everybody has to hide their treasure!!

  14. If I were there durinng the announcement, I would have gone ballistic over the whole environment, perfomed something like stagejump with Todd Hovard in my hands. :)

    Well, actually one of my friends had told me to expect some great announcement a few days before SpikeTV awards took place. And the thing is that We’d already known rumors about Mass Effect 3 and Resistance 3, but this one was not only the greatest one, it also was totally unexpected! Even for me, though I was forewarned. So I was patient for a few days not to force my friend to spoil the effect and it was definetly the right decision!

  15. It’d probably be best for all involved if God/Buddha/Allah/whatever just fastforwarded time right ahead to 11/11/11. Y’know… just sayin…

    I’d rather cut out all the information about the game from now on…
    Does anyone here doubt about subject’s quality? I don’t. And the thing is that it sucks to know everything about the game before you can play it and feel everything by yourself. Developers spoil too much about their games these days, And it’s damn difficult to resist the temptation to know every bit of information about the game before you can lay your hands on it. :(

  17. Does anyone know what the likely system specs are? I know I’ll need a new computer, but I want to get the right one in advance. Like what kind of video card(s), processor speed, RAM, etc. If they’ve already developed the engine I wish they’d at least publish possible specs.

  18. i really hope they ring back vamps and warewolfs. nothings funneir then killing thetowns people as they run away form you. XD

  19. woooooooooooooo!!!!! Im dying to play skyrim the story looks and sounds amazing but i was wondering are you able to be a warewolf in skyrim

  20. BETHESDA READ THIS COMMENT!!!!

    WHAT IS WITH THE TREASURE CHEST’S, I’VE ALWAYS WONDERED WHY THE TREASURE CHEST’S ARE ALWAYS VISIBLE ONCE YOU BEAT A BOSS, OR ARE IN A DUNGEON. IF YOU HAD TREASURE WOULD’NT YOU HIDE IT? I KNOW I DEFINATELY WOULD, THIS IS A MUST, IT WOULD MAKE THE GAME ABSOLUTELY TEN BILLION TIMES BETTER, IT WOULD MAKE FOR MORE GAME TIME SEARCHING FOR YOU TREASURE, AND MUCH MORE FUN.

    ALSO!!!!!!!!!!

    THEIR SHOULD BE AN IN-GAME CAMERA, CALL OF DUTY, AND DEFINATELY HALO HAVE HAD MAJOR SUCCESS WITH FANS WITH THIS FEATURE. JUST IMAGINE TAKING PICTURES OF YOUR CHARACTER, BACKGROUNDS, FUNNY STUFF, NPC’S, COOL GRAPHIC ART, COOL KILLS, DRAGONS, THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ABSOLUTELY ENDLESS. PLEASE THIS FEATURE IS A MUST.

  21. Okay, okay, great unveiling, great trailer, ETC, ETC, ETC…., But most importantly will there be a special Collectors Edition of Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim?
