Bethesda Says Skyrim Engine "All New"


There was some debate over what engine the new Elder Scrolls game would be using, and all signs seemed to point to GameBryo. However, writing on Twitter earlier today, Bethesda Softworks community manager Nick Breckon said: "We can now confirm that the TES V: Skyrim engine is all-new. And it looks fantastic." I asked him what "new" means in this case, and whether it was simply a new version of the Gamebryo engine that powered Oblivion and the recent Fallout games. He responded: "It's a new graphics/gameplay engine built internally. We'll have more details down the road."

Interesting!
