When I posted the teaser for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
, I wondered what engine they would use to power the new Oblivion game. Was it going to be an improved Gamebryo engine that powered the previous game and Fallout 3
or would they take iD's Rage
engine and go from there.
Well, Bethesda has confirmed through Twitter
that it's a brand new internal engine and they say it's spectacular. That's great news as, let's be honest, the Gamebryo engine was getting long in the tooth. Fallout: New Vegas
looked OK for today, but now I'm really excited to see screenshots of Skyrim and what Bethesda has up their sleeves.
