The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim box art revealed

Keeping with the tradition set by 2002’s The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, the official cover art for this year’s The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim is simple and elegant, decorated only by a logo and a dark, textured background.

Out on November 11, Skyrim has been positively received by previewing journalists. Our own Matthew Frassetti called the game “a masterpiece in the making,” adding “it’s something you must see to believe” — based off a demo shown behind closed doors at E3 last week. His preview can be read in its entirety here.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will launch for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
