Stunning new Skyrim live-action trailer has swords, a dragon

Watch the world of Elder Scrolls come to life in spectacular fashion

This year has been good, if not excellent for videogames releases, but the most likely candidate for game of the year is yet to come – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, from Oblivion and Fallout 3 developers Bethesda, is likely to claim that title with its open world, high-fantasy action. The above live-action trailer is a declaration of intent; here’s hoping the game can convey this level of drama. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available on 11/11/11 on 360, PS3 and PC.
