Skyrim Looks 'Way Better' On PC, Almost Went Next-Gen
Bethesda drops facts on Skyrim development at QuakeCon
Published on Aug 8, 2011
Following a mixed reaction from the QuakeCon crowd after announcing that Skyrim was being demoed on Xbox 360, Bethesda's Todd Howard said: "I can assure you the PC version looks even way better."
Howard also revealed that the Bethesda development team considered going next-gen for Skyrim. "When we finished Fallout 3 we thought we're gonna do Elder Scrolls again - should we wait for the next-generation of hardware?" he explained.
"We had a pretty big laundry list of features that we knew we could do with the PCs that are coming out now and on the 360 and PS3. When we make an Elder Scrolls our goal is to make a virtual fantasy world come to life on screen."
Check out the video of Howard's presentation for more. Skyrim is set for release on 11 November 2011 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
