Bethesda Explains Why The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Looks So Good On Xbox 360

Posted on September 2, 2011 AT 12:00am

Anyone who’s seen The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim knows that it looks beautiful and is set to be Bethesda’s best looking title to date.

In a recent interview, Skyrim Director Todd Howard detailed what the team did to make the Xbox 360 version of the game look so good.

“We’ve  rewritten all the graphics and the gameplay system, as well as used a new face system, a new interface”

“And we knew coming off of Fallout 3 on the Xbox 360, that there was a lot we could still do to really harness the power of it. There is just this unlimited amount of detail we put into the world, from little things like forks and berries to mountains and dragons. We wanted all of that scale on the screen at once and the trickiest thing but we’ve managed to pull it off”

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will release on November 11th for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
