Like Bubba from Forrest Gump, we could go on for days talking about the different customization options you’ll have with Skyrim. But instead, we decided to share the preset options you’ll have when you start your adventure. Above is a sampling of choices you can make for the men and women of Skyrim… the Nords.
Check out the other nine races after the break (or by visiting our Flickr page).
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve released new screenshots for Dishonored. You can check these out on the newly launched official site – www.dishonored.com. Bookmark the page today and keep an eye out for new updates.
Do you know who Harvey Smith is? The lead designer of Deus Ex, and now co-director of Dishonored? You may be surprised to learn that he is not, in fact, Randy Smith of Thief fame. Harvey explains the confusion between himself and other famous Smiths — as well as what games he’s actually worked on — in a recent blog post. Give it a read — perhaps while listening to The Smiths.
In other Dishonored news, many Dishonored previews have gone up in the wake of QuakeCon and GamesCom. Check out all sorts of coverage at the following outlets:
With PAX Prime 2011 kicking off on Friday, we wanted to share details on what we’re planning.
At our booth (#1314), you won’t want to miss your chance to play RAGE, as well as presentations of Prey 2 at the top of every hour. On top of that, fans will be able to play Skyrim for the first time!
But wait, there’s more! At 3:30 pm on Saturday, Todd Howard will be giving a special presentation of the game in the Unicorn theater. Seating is expected to be limited, so you will definitely want to line up early. As a bonus, everyone that attends the demo will receive a ticket which can be redeemed at our booth for a Skyrim plush helmet — just like the one being modeled by our lovely 2008 PAX statue, Burnadette.
If you’re not able to get the helmet at the presentation, you can also visit our Skyrim food truck to grab one. Located at 9th & Pine (across from the Paramount Theater) from 11:30 to 3:00 pm Saturday, the truck will feature the following foods fit for a Nord:
With the Gamescom 2011 over, our UK office is already preparing for Eurogamer Expo 2011 — taking place at Earl’s Court in London September 22 – 25th. You’ll definitely want to check out this year’s event, as both RAGE and Skyrim will be playable!
If you’re interested in attending, be sure to purchase tickets before they sell out.
“Hey, it looks like the Bethesda forums are down, do you mind if I head home a little early?”
That’s our recommended messaging for your boss this Friday at 4 PM Eastern Time, as we’ll be taking down all of our Bethesda sites for a maintenance overhaul. In total, we anticipate our sites will be down for approximately four hours. While our sites are down, we’ll keep you posted on all the latest news on the Bethesda twitter account.
To help pass the time, I hoped that we could put up a Magic Eye image of Alduin, but it sounds like our IT department has a “Connection Timeout” message planned instead.
