Skyrim System Requirements
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was designed and is powered by Bethesda’s brand new game engine, the Creation Engine. The new game engine was used to design the game world with greater graphical detail than its predecessors. The draw distance and lighting were improved, creating a more atmospheric environment and greater detail when every object in the game world casts a shadow. Bethesda created the entire flora in Skyrim by utilizing the Creation Engine, instead of SpeedTree which they used for previous titles. Bethesda also utilized Havok’s Behavior toolset to create smoother animations for characters’ movements and actions. In addition to the PC, Skyrim is playable on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
