That trailer always gives me chills....
Bethesda's gotten a load of community questions and have decided that answering them before Skyrim's release was the best idea. They were wrong. They're driving us all crazy at the GameRevolution compound. If you're a gamer, Skyrim's gotta be on your radar. If it wasn't, some of these answers will cement it's place on there. Game Director Todd Howard, Lead Designer Bruce Nesmith, and Lead Artist Matt Carofano answered a handful of questions, confirming and revealing several tidbits that make the wait for November that much harder.
Howard neither confirmed nor denied whether or not the player will be able to transform into other creatures in Skyrim, stating that they'd "prefer to not discuss this one. We'd like to leave that an open question until the game is out." Nesmith replied to one community member that leveling will be handled as it was in Fallout 3 where certain areas yield higher level enemies and loot, rather than scaling as it was in Oblivion.
When asked whether players will be able to have relationships in-game, Nesmith replied:
Carofano revealed that "one of the most prized and rarest sets of armor is made from dragons," while Nesmith confirmed that magic weapons and armor will operate as they did in Oblivion, requiring soul gems to power their effects. When asked about non-lethal means of defeating opponents, Howard replied:
