Skyrim GI Scans Arrive, Definitely Won't Be A MMORPG
We told you that next month's Game Informer would feature The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and those scans have already hit the Internet.
We've got one of them for you here, and you can see the rest over at GamingEverything; they're well worth a glance. You might spot some new tidbits of information before your greedy eyes fall upon next month's issue. But there's one specific detail that has started to make the rounds amongst RPG fans: it had been rumored in the past that the next Elder Scrolls iteration would be a MMO. The games are pretty darn close to that style of gaming, anyway, and it was believed that fans would actually approve of the shift to an all-online multiplayer venue. However, if you're not one of those people, you'll be happy to know that these scans prove Skyrim is indeed a single-player adventure; it's no MMO. For those who prefer to think of role-playing as a genre best experienced in solitary mode (and I'm one such gamer), this comes as good news. Besides, there are plenty of other options if you desire the massively multiplayer setting.
Be sure to set aside a large chunk of time when the fifth Elder Scrolls drops. Like, maybe a few hundred hours or so.
