The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Preview

Cheat Code Central offers a preview of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It's not immediately clear what the preview is based on, but it reads more like a summation of known facts than an impression piece.
The Elder Scrolls V takes place, as the name suggests, in Skyrim, the northern province of Tameriel. Home to the Nords and a harsh, cold atmosphere, Skyrim is a place of mountainous geography and savage wilderness. It is not an uncivilized land, however, as there are five major cities and several smaller towns, settlements, and villages. Similar to the jobs system in Fable II and III, players inside a city can take part in extra-curricular activities such as farming, cooking, mining, and blacksmithing in order to create new items and earn money. Each of the five cities within Skyrim is bigger and more diverse than those seen in the province of Cyrodiil (the game world of Oblivion). The land of Skyrim is roughly the same size as Cyrodiil sixteen square miles. Scattered across this huge province are over 130 dungeons as well as many free-roaming dragons that plague the wilderness and mountain ranges. As with any Elder Scrolls game, players will have complete open-world freedom to travel around Skyrim wherever and whenever they want, undertaking any task they wish.
