The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.


The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.

Key Features:

Epic Fantasy Reborn. Skyrim reimagines the open-world fantasy epic, pushing the gameplay and technology of a virtual world to new heights.
Live another life, in another world. Play any type of character you can imagine, and do whatever you want; the legendary freedom of choice, storytelling, and adventure of The Elder Scrolls is realized like never before.
All new graphics and gameplay engine. Skyrim's new game engine brings to life a complete virtual world with rolling clouds, rugged mountains, bustling cities, lush fields, and ancient dungeons.
You are what you play. Choose from hundreds of weapons, spells, and abilities. The new character system allows you to play any way you want and define yourself through your actions.
Dragons return. Battle ancient dragons like you've never seen. As Dragonborn, learn their secrets and harness their power for yourself.

This is in response to Jondolar's question. To use a potion, simply go to you inventory, open the section labeled potions, and left click on the desired potion. To aquire potions you must either find them around, buy them, or make them at an alchemy table. (Instructions and recipes Are online)

I'm an older than usual gamer that's recently chosen to play RPGs to keep myself preoccupied & entertained. I say this because I want to make a statement about something I've observed -and this is NOT meant to put down anyone for it - but I've noticed most of the sites that provide help for these RPG games make a grand assumption; that whoever's playing it automatically knows the basics of how the interface of the particular game works. For instance... I'm starting out in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and manage to escaped from the keep with one of the two choices, pick up weapons from those we manage to kill and make our way to Riverdale (?); the first town. However, it seems that no matter how much I search through the controls and help notes from within, or from other "cheat" sites like this, I can't find out how a player acquires and consumes any health potions or other such simple tasks. If there is information for such simple ways one utilizes the game's interface, I'm not locating it! Therefore, if anyone reading this entry is willing to inform me of these particular simple, yet critical issues of successfully playing the game I'm citing here, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

I'm having some trouble in World- Eaters Eyrie. I'm at the part where I just killed the douger, and got the diamond claw. I go to the puzzle, and try to rotate the pieces, and nothing happens. All I get is an activate rings by pressing A. We'll nothing happens. The claw works on the in center circle, and I can move the lid to one of the urns. Is there anything to be done? Or am I screwed?

I need to know how to get out of the "Bloodskal Barrow". This is the FinalDescent quest. I spoke to Crescius Caerellius, Retrieved Gratian Caerellius's Journal and read it, now I have to escape the barrow. The journal said that you have to have the bloodskal blade from side to side in order to open the door but it's not working.

How do I report Leifnarrs death to his family I forgot who they are ?Could someone help please

Titan88 09/06/2013 08:39

@zolan-if you are on a PC game, open the console and type tgm so you are in god mode and can't die. This is the easiest way to avoid this "bug". If you are on a console, then you need to be as light as possible (empty your inventory as much as possible) and you need to look down and adjust your position so you land on the upper part of the pedestal. This usually can be done by walking forward a bit when you are lifted up to speak to Meridia.

zolan 30/04/2013 09:13

I am playing the game and i just did the dedric quest the break of dawn and i had the quest completed but when Meridia put me down I died. Is there anyine one out there that had the same problem . If so how did you fix it . Please post a answer so that I cam complete the quset and not die at the end
