40 minutes of Skyrim QuakeCon footage

The Skyrim you want to see

If you’ve been waiting on seeing that super long gameplay demo of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, then this is your morning. A QuakeCon attendee managed to record a 40-minute presentation of the game given by director Todd Howard on-stage this weekend. Howard gave the demo on Xbox 360, but assured the audience the PC version “looks way better.” The team’s goal is to “make the virtual fantasy world come to life on the screen.”

The demo highlights first-person and third-person play, a completely reworked graphics engine, skills, horseback-riding, dragon-fighting, dual-wielding, spells, and much more. View it here. And quickly! We don’t know how much longer it’ll remain online.

Thanks, NeoGAF.
