Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Gameplay Trailer is here!

2006: Hundreds of thousands of gamers disappear suddenly and without a trace.

Many months later, when the first of them emerge and hazily return to their workplaces, schools, and girlfriends, it is revealed that the cause of this phenomenon was Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. When the release of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was announced for November 11 this year, many wondered whether our society could indeed survive another event like the Great Gamer Disappearance of ’06.

BEHOLD!
