Just saw, they look awesome. The game does look really good, and considering the game will probably get a bit better and smoother by the time it's out, it looks good.

Yay, Khajiit characters are back! Khajiit thief, here I come! I never had any doubt, but confirmation is always nice.

Also super pumped for this game. I have quite a few games on my list this year, but Skyrim is definitely close to the top.

Needs more dragons !

It looks really great, but what I want to see is what they've done with the combat system (aka gameplay).

It's TES, almost warrants a pre-order :woot:

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim ?mostly a DirectX 9 game.? DirectX 11 support a possibility

Game director Todd Howard has been talking about the PC version of the game will compete with its console competitors. Aside from better quality textures and higher resolutions, he says Skyrim will ?looks the same? on PC as it does on consoles. However, possible DirectX 11 support further down the line could give the PC version a significant graphical advantage.

Howard was spoke to Eurogamer about the PC version of Skyrim. ?It scales up in all the ways you would expect. We author our art really high res. There are little things we do with all of our games on the PC. With the PC the texture sizes are going to be as big as you want to make them, and you can pump the resolution up, obviously.?

When it comes to comparisons with the console versions, Howard says ?the game looks the same. The benefit we get when you?re playing a PC game is you?re sitting this far away [moves hands in front of his face]. At home when you?re on your console you?re usually sitting six to eight feet away.? He adds that Skyrim is ?mostly a DirectX 9 game in terms of how the shaders work.?

Howard does say that there?s chance that advanced DirectX 11 support further down the line. ?When it comes to DirectX 11 there are things they get us for free, like performance gains. You?re going to get performance gains out of it versus an older version.

?But the specifics DX11 does, like tessellation and all that kinda stuff, we aren?t taking advantage of that right now. That doesn?t mean we won?t in the future. We aren?t right now because we want to author it so it looks great.?

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is set for a worldwide release on November 11. It?s looking pretty amazing for a DirectX 9 game. Check out the latest batch of screens to see for yourself.

ugh, fricking consoles holding back pc games. Derp lets all both look the same, why the hell don't they make the PC version look better so they can finally show what PC's today are capable of.

It's called a smart business choice. Cater to a few or to the masses.... Not really holding anything back though. They are saying dx11 will be out later on. But with this method, they can first release it so everyone can play it, and then use the revenue from the sales to help boost the PC side better.

I think you failed to read the part about PC having high res textures. DX9 games can still look amazing. I think people need to stop feeling entitled to "perfection".

I'm perfectly happy where graphics are right now. Games look amazing still. Story and Gameplay are more important factors in a game anyway.

Nope, an assumption by those ignorant of my intents.... I read the whole article and understood the article, even then I am still eligible for my own opinion, now whether you agree or not, I clearly don't care. Business is one thing, and lets face it; We both do not have an MBA.

I'd rather they focused on story and gameplay than graphics. Shogun 2 certainly isn't any worse off as a game for the lack of DX11 at the moment (although it is a shame AA is disabled too), and that is a PC-only game.

Don't need a MBA to know what is good for business... I run my own business, and there are certain things you do with budget and time to get things done. This makes perfect sense. You don't have to make the product with all the bells and whistles for the first release when the bells and whistles can be added on later, via a download lol. I would say it is more ignorant to think you have to have a college education to know anything about anything....

This. No mods on 360 & PS3. So it's just a waste of money.

Obviously if you don't have a PC capable of playing it then you have no choice but to get for console.

However, if you do have a PC capable of playing it then buying for console is a waste of money.

Which is why he didnt ask wether to pre-order it for PC, 360 and PS3, only the consoles so its safe to assume PC is out of the equation.

But will it be dumbed down for consoles like Oblivion and requires add-ons to make it works properly on PC ?

      Gartner predicts in-use global devices will hit 6.2 billion this year
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Gartner has predicted that in-use devices including PCs, tablets, and mobile phones, will reach 6.2 billion units this year. According to the firm, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed device usage patterns and is ultimately increasing the number of devices that each person has.

      According to data from the firm, the 6.2 billion figure is set to rise by a further 3.2% in 2021 reaching 6.4 billion units. The biggest loser as a result of the pandemic is desktop PCs which are expected to decline from 522 million in 2020 to 470 million in 2022, however, the usage of laptops and tablets will increase by 8.8% and 11.7% respectively as they’re preferred by people working from home.

      Image via Gartner Commenting on the data, Ranjit Atwal, senior research director at Gartner, said:

      In addition to laptops and tablets doing well in 2020, smartphones are expected to see an in-use increase of 1% this year following a decline of 2.6% last year. The analyst said that lower-priced 5G handsets will encourage people to upgrade their smartphone or finally make the shift from a feature phone.

      Krafton launches top-down mini-game POBG inside PUBG
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      In honour of April Fool's Day, companies around the globe have celebrated the day with fake products and ridiculous announcements. At first sight, one might think that the announcement of the game titled PlayerOmnom's Battlegrounds, or POBG as most people are calling it, is one such prank.

      On the contrary, the creator of the wildly popular battle royale title PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds says so otherwise. Krafton has released an official statement authenticating that POBG is indeed real. PUBG's makers are currently offering players a chance to play POBG, which they are jokingly claiming to be the inspiration for the main game.

      Players can enjoy the title in the form of a mini-game within the PC version of PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds. A gag trailer for the newly unveiled game-within-a-game can be seen below:

      The mini-game is available for a short period of time. PUBG players can play the top-down shooter through the lobby of the game. PC users will be able to play POBG starting from today until April 12.

      Meanwhile, console owners have not been left out of the April Fool's special release. PUBG players on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms will be able to play POBG through the main game's lobby from April 8 through April 19, 2021.
