Skyrim will rekindle the spirit of exploration lost with Oblivion says Bethesda
Bethesda's Todd Howard has been explaining about what their plans have been while developing Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Howard said that, they hope to rekindle the spirit of exploration and discovery that they fostered with Morrowind but dropped when developing Oblivion in favour of a more welcoming and familiar environment.
He told Official Xbox Magazine in the UK: "It should feel alien, kind of 'stranger in a strange' land, with familiar looking elements only rooting you early in the game. The whole tone ends up being one of 'I'm an outsider, I'm uncomfortable'. With Oblivion, we're dealing with the capital province, and we wanted to get back to the more classic Arena and Daggerfall feel of a fantasy world that felt more refined and welcoming, a place that you instantly understood."
Howard continued: "But in that, we sacrificed some of what made Morrowind special; the wonder of discovery With Skyrim, we're trying to bring some of that back and walk the line between Morrowind and Oblivion. Where it's at first familiar looking, but has its own unique culture and spin on it."
