UPDATE: As you can see from the above video, the Quakecon Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim video has been taken off YouTube... sorry if you missed it. But have faith: We'll have a ton of Skyrim content coming up for you in the coming days, so sit tight!
QuakeCon happened last week. Fans braved the Texas heat to check out the latest games from id Software and Bethesda Softworks, including the first-ever public demo of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. Don't be sad about missing it though-- that footage is now online.
This is essentially the same demo that the press has been talking about since E3. It picks up at the very start of the game, right after the usual character creation and tutorial sequences. You get to see some nature, some village exploration, a pair of towering giant herding some woolly mammoth-like creatures and, of course, dragons. Plural. Just hit play. Then go read Kevin's hands-on preview.
