  1. OMFG cant wait what kind of daggers is that and what city is it???????????????????????????????????
    so much questions so little time

  2. Looks absolutely incredible. Exactly how I always imagined the Dunmer would look utilizing current-gen technology. Love how unique and detailed all the races are shaping up to be. Stunning work.

  3. More interesting than the Dunmer imho is the ‘Northern Light’ in the night sky (or aurora borealis).

    I wonder if it’s a regular feature of the Skyrim night sky or if it ties in with the return of the dragons (who are said to hail from Aetherius).

  4. A shame really that you have to make it run on 6 year old consoles, really shows in the closeup screens, but I’m sure it’ll nevertheless be game of the year for me.

  5. OMG?!?!?! I might have to change my underwear cause I trickled. I might have to change my character From a breton (Benjamin Lakekilt) to another race. They all look so cool

  6. He’s got a beard, knives and leather pants. Kick ass! Also the background looks awesome. Can’t wait to explore…

  7. holy crap….. I usually went with Bosmers to get the magicka boost….but man….. he looks PISSED and that is something i think i need to utilize….. Is it November 11th yet?

  8. the dark elf would have been good enough but we also go to see that the leather armor, and the daggers don’t have to look Nordic I was a bit worried you would be locked into that style of clothing.

  9. Now THIS is a Dark Elf!
    This makes me think of TESV as a direct sequel to Morrowind, as if Oblivion was non-canon or a spin-off of some sorts. This screenshot has that culture that reminds me of Morrowind, unless it’s just Nastalgia kicking in.

    I’ve never had a video game screenshot as my desktop wallpaper ever before in my life.

    Skyrim is really starting to encourage me to conceptualize new characters to play other than a Nord for once.

  10. Correction… “reminds me of Morrowind, the old scent of TES that made it special in a way, or what really made TES what TES really is. Unless it’s just Nastalgia kicking in.”

  11. Its a great pick and shows off some neat new things but wow… Stinks I cant relay on my fellow fans to vote for the obvious Argonian ~_~ .. I like Dunmer more myself but we have seen the Dunmer in the demo guys .. come on :(

    Thanks for the pic Bethesda .. Hope you guys can have pity on your true fans and post the goodies soon. I have a feeling most of those votes were just facebook gamers and not true TES nerds.

  12. Ok.. I just checked the votes again .. Seriously? .. Nord and Warrior took second place? .. Shame on all of you :( I have a Folder on my desktop with about 20 high quality pictures of Nord Warriors in Skyrim .. you could have just asked me!! .. Know what I don’t have a pic of though? .. can you guess? .. *eye twitches*

  13. Fantastic facial design!…You can feel his anger! Everyone of these little “Big” pre-views are amazing. Thanks so much for the screenshot!

  14. Ever since the overhaul of http://elderscrolls.com and the creation of the Elder Council Facebook page, I have been very frustrated. Everytime I try to go to the Facebook page, I get re-directed to my Facebook home. I cannot access the fan page, and it makes me angry. That’s why there are only 275k fans…

  15. @ noob

    The Dunmer are described as having ashen grey colored skin with red eyes. They are not blue if you want blue/purplish go play as a Night Elf in WOW.

  16. My bad Sslaxx, I should have written *again*.

    The beards restriction even has a extra Shivering Isles (ES IV expansion) easteregg ;)
