There is one big question everyone has in regards to The Elder Srolls V: Skyrim. You guessed it: what’ll the leveling be like? While a new forum post by Bethesda Softwork’s senior community manager isn’t the definitive answer, it should be a welcome start.

“Since people are asking, wanted to briefly touch on level scaling. All our games have had some amount of randomness/leveling based on player level. Skyrim‘s is similar to Fallout 3‘s, not Oblivion‘s.”

I must be remembering wrong, because everyone always talks trash about Oblivion‘s scaling, and I don’t recall being particularly bothered by it. Tell me tales of how it ruined your life in the comments, if it’ll make you feel warm inside.
