Bethesda has today revealed that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will not feature armour and weapon degradation like many modern day RPGS.
One user asked Bethesda’s Marketing VP Pete Hines;
“Hey Pete, I’m just wondering, do weapons and armor degrade in Skyrim, like with their own health? Also, is there visual damage?”
To which he replied;
“No and no.”
Hines went on to say that this system had been replaced with an upgrade system to allow people to move forward with their weapons instead of keep repairing them back to square one.
