The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Gets a Detailed Map

Bethesda has released the map of Skyrim, and with it, a detailed account on where everything we have seen of the game has occurred.


While we have seen the game played in quite a few events, few of us had any idea where everything happened in the game world. Bethesda has released a map of Skyrim to remedy that absence of knowledge, and with it we can speculate on where the events in the demos are localized.

The user “The World Eater” has been through his paces and has deduced where the demo happened as well as the general environment of the major regions. There is quite a bit of variety in environments, ranging from tundra, pine forests, fall forests and mountainsides as well as snowy barrows and seas.

The starting point of the demos and the areas that most appear in the trailers seems to be next to Riverwood next to the village Oakwood. The demo Todd Howard shows featuring the dragon fight is to the south of Whiterun.

Some other points of interest would be the Winterhold Mages Guild in the northeast of Skyrim and the Thieves Guild HQ over next to Riften to the southeast.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released on November 11 for the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
