Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Screenshots Show Off The Creation Engine

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will employ a brand-new Creation Engine. Several new screenshots from Bethesda demonstrate just what this new tech can do.

Skyrim is the northern-most province of Tamriel and home to the Nords. It's a harsh, snowy environment inhabited by dragons and other foul creatures. Hostile environment or not, it does look inviting with that level of graphics.

The Creation Engine enables every item in the world to cast a shadow. This lighting, along with the dynamic weather and new foliage system, allows Skyrim to look as real as possible. The increased draw distance of Creation lets the player really appreciate these views.

Skyrim is due out on November 11, 2011. Considering it's the most easily remembered release date ever (11-11-11), I probably won't have to repeat that too much.
