Nick Breckon, Bethesda Softworks’ community manager, has confirmed that the brand new Elder Scrolls game announced last night, Skyrim, will run on an “all-new” engine.

“We can now confirm that the TES V: Skyrim engine is all-new,” Breckon said. “And it looks fantastic.”

As ZeniMax (Bethesda’s owner) also owns id Software, the id Tech 5 engine was on the cards, but that’s obviously out of the window. Either way it’s good to hear the shitty faces and character movement in Gamebryo will be a thing of the past.

Stop right there, criminal scum!

    • Considering that Morrowind and Oblivion have been moddable, as well as Fallout 3 and New Vegas, I think it would be safe to assume that there will be modding tools at least a few months after release.

  1. Thank God, don’t get me wrong, gamebyro looked damn good in 2006, But it just doesn’t do The Elder Scrolls 5 justice. For a game thats been in the making for this long, it should be a no- brainer that a new engine would be used.
