The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion & Skyrim Screenshot Comparison

With plenty of E3 coverage for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim coming our way this week, SystemLink Multi brings us a screenshot comparison with Oblivion.  Unsurprisingly, screenshots taken from a 5-year old game do not match up well with the bullshots Bethesda has released for Skyrim.

Essentially, everything has been given an extra hundred layers of detail. The finished product is much more realistic, yet somehow being much more otherworldly than the slightly tepid Oblivion.


Every race seen so far is subtly altered to be less human, giving more diversity to the world. Combine with the obvious graphical update, and Oblivion looks outdated beyond belief.
