Did you know that Skyrim comes out next week? Of course you did; you’ve been unremitting in your consumption of all things Elder Scrolls V, like nearly every gamer on the planet. No way a release date is going to sneak by you!

Anyway, in honour of the impending destruction of our free time and social lives, I present to you a clip fresh from the Bethesda Blog that shows you some of their more iconic concept art making the jump from 2D painted bits of canvas, to in-game graphics. If you don’t get all misty-eyed as you watch this, then it’s likely Skyrim isn’t your bag. In which case, you’re dead to me.

We have about a week until The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim lands on 11 November – Hooray!
