Steamy: Skyrim Definitely Using Steamworks


There was some speculation earlier in the year - I believe after a GFW badge was spotted oozing across the surface of Skyrim box - about whether Skyrim would be using Games For Windows Live for its content delivery, savegames, DRM, and general online nonsense, but apparently not. The official Elder Scrolls twitter typist has confirmed it will be using Steamworks. That means we can sidestep the extra login, and the fear that GFWL will attempt to "update", breaking irreparably and causing your beloved but distant relatives to catch on fire, pass out, and drown in their soup.
