While the mere mention of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was enough to get gamers drooling and scrabbling to preorder Bethesda’s latest, they’ve finally released a new trailer that shows in-game footage. If you weren’t sold yet, you will be now. The world already looks more alive than any game in the series so far- just check out that lighting!

So, yeah. Beautiful. Also, that narrator? Max von Sydow.

They’ve relaunched the official website over at ElderScrolls.com, where you can brush up on the history of Bethesda’s expansive world.

Skyrim will be released worldwide on 11.11.11 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Reminds me- I really should try to go back and finally finish up Oblivion at some point. Every few months I end up getting sucked back into that world, but it’s been over 100 hours and those Shivering Isles haven’t even been explored yet…
