Skyrim Details: Exploration, Side Quests, Stealth Perks

If you're thoroughly psyched for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you probably don't need any additional details.

Then again, maybe you're so psyched, you just can't get enough information, and every new fact - no matter how small - is just another reason to pick up Bethesda's latest on November 11. Yeah, it isn't that far off.

Well, if that's the case, here are more details from what seems to be the Russian version of the next Game Informer. Plus, if you click through the link, you'll find some new screenshots, too. As for the highlights, check 'em out:

-- Just killing a random stranger or 2 won’t be enough for you to join the Dark Brotherhood.

-- Couple of stealth perks include 15x damage increase with a dagger in stealth and perk that allows you to disappear from battle.

-- Upon exploring Whiterun you’ll be asked if your Battle-Born or Stormcloaks. On this occasion the player said Battle-Born and got to explore their headquarters without any harm. They offer a quest, they suspect one of their soldiers has been taken by the Stormcloaks at Northwatch Keep.

-- He hears some gossip in the local tavern that a boy in Windhelm is looking for the Dark Brotherhood.

-- After that, the writer didn’t want to describe what happens next because of spoilers. He says that if you’re a fan of previous questlines you’re going to love it and has it’s a nice mix of dark humour and brutality. Just as he was about to visit the Dark Brotherhood sanctuary, his time ran out.

-- Briefly before he finished he climbed up a mountain to Azura’s Shrine and was offered a quest.

Forgive any rough translations. However, you get the idea. We're talking about plenty of intricate detail, which should make this vibrant, engaging world all the more involving. Personally, I just wanna fly. No, seriously. I want a class that can eventually sprout wings like a freakin' dragon and rain terror down from the skies! ...too much to ask for?

Imagine that landscape from the skies :O. Forget sprouting wings... I want to lasso me a dragon and go for a flight!

That's some pretty cool quest info though. I may end up getting this one as a birthday present for myself, considering I don't really have the money to go all-out and this releases the day prior... I'm still SO tempted to wait for a GotY edition though, since they've already announced DLC. Oh decisions, decisions...

with Oblivion and Fallouts, I always buy the game and then buy the GotY edition and give the old versions to my nephew. But then again, I'm an RPG freak... I don't spend my money on CoD or the extra maps, I save for these types of games.

I think flying in a game like TES would make the experience feel a bit cheap. The game is already massive, and adding something like flight would take balancing and serious work to pull off in order to make it feel right. Still very excited for this game... hope I can conquer Dark Souls before November 11th.
