Game Informer’s Skyrim cover tease already translated

Recommended Videos

Well, that was quick. Barely hours after Game Informer‘s spartan-yet-intriguing cover art reveal for The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, intrepid fans have already gone and translated the mysterious text at the back of the mag.

Of course, the fact that Game Informer itself included a convenient translation key for the text on their website helped matters, but still, it’s nice to see that friendly folks on Reddit did what I and doubtless other gamers were too busy or lazy to do themselves.

Check out the text and translations, unaltered.
