The world of Skyrim: It all looks rather splendid

As if to mock us mere mortals who have yet to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda have thrown another video our way. There's not much action, but there is a lot of scene setting. It goes a long way to show how much more diverse Skyrim is when compared to Cyrodiil in Oblivion. It all looks so wonderful that I almost didn't notice that we didn't get to see a massive dragon barbequing some poor clueless sod.

I'll have to wait for over a week before I have time to play it. So thanks Bethesda, you've just made a grown man weep. But just a little. For the rest of you it drops in a couple of days, but who didn't know that already?
