In the latest episode of “Boundary Break,” a video series in which YouTube user Shesez takes video game fans to places they can’t reach while playing to discover hidden secrets, Bethesda Game Studios’ instant classic The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is explored. It shares peeks at things like what your character looks like before you customize your appearance, what areas look like before you enter, a sneaky developer trick hiding below vendors, and more.
And to make this is a nice Bethesda-themed post, an older episode uncovering the secrets of the developer’s latest hit Fallout 4 can also be found below.
During Bethesda’s E3 2017 showcase, they shared trailers for a pair of upcoming virtual reality titles, Fallout 4 VR and DOOM VFR. Some were hoping that this meant we might also see a VR experience for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as well, but nothing was said about it at the time.
As it turned out, the trailer for a Skyrim VR experience was simply being saved for a little bit later. It was shown during Sony’s PlayStation presentation earlier this week, because the game is being released on PlayStation VR. Continue below to read more about the game and to check out the trailer if you haven’t seen it.
When we were first introduced to Nintendo’s latest console, Nintendo Switch, last October, one game shown playing on the system surprised many: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
If you’re a fan of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda series and always wished you could play one of those games that looked more like Skyrim, now you’ll be able to make that fantasy a reality. During Bethesda’s E3 2017 showcase last night, a trailer for Skyrim on Switch was shared. And in it, the player was able to become Link from the Zelda series and set off on the many adventures one can find in the game.
I’m among the many who adore Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls and Fallout games, but let’s be perfectly honest: the AI characters and enemies are not exactly known for being smart when it comes to what’s actually going on around them. And that’s fine, for me anyway. You can develop a stealthy character if you choose but it’s not a stealth game, so I can accept the AI’s questionable eyes.
Still, it’s funny to mess with things like this sometimes. One of the very first videos I watched when The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released back in 2011 messed with the AI a bit. That only made me want to play the game even more. Now YouTube channel Nukazooka has made a video having some fun with how sneaking works in Skyrim, which can be seen below, and fans of the game will no doubt get a chuckle out of it.
Back in June during E3 2016, it was confirmed that a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was on the way called Skyrim Special Edition.
The new edition includes a shiny new version of the game complete with all of the add-on DLC content that was released after its initial launch. The game is set to be released in less than a week on October 28th, and now a second trailer has been released to show more gameplay action from the Special Edition.
