Bethesda Unveils Races of Skyrim

Bethesda Unveils Races of Skyrim

When The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launches this November, gamers will be treated to a first-person fantasy epic and an experience that truly revolves around their character. Part of that involvement will take form in Skyrim’s character customization. Series vets know that picking a race for your character is a very important decision for both gameplay and aesthetic appeal. WhileĀ Bethesda hasn’t added any additional races to the traditional ten we’ve grown to love, the visual overhaul that Skyrim has received applies to its residents as well. Screenshots leaked here and there have given us a glimpse of what Orcs, Nords, and their brethren will look like, but now Bethesda has released a comprehensive gallery of every race and gender in Skyrim.

The following pictures exhibit each of Skyrim’s ten races, with two rows of males and females each. The variations shown are the preset options for each race/gender combo. Rest assured if you don’t like any of the presets, the game will feature overwhelmingly detailed customization for everything from hairstyle to cheek concavity to eyebrow height. Stay tuned to Vivid Gamer for more on this highly-anticipated RPG epic in the coming weeks.
