The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released in 2011 by Bethesda Softworks and marks the next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga. Skyrim reimagines and revolutionizes the open-world fantasy, bringing to life a complete virtual world, open for exploration in any way.
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.
