Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim live-action trailer lands

The gameplay walkthrough is surely the ruler of all video game trailers, wed to trailers of edited gameplay, and support by a court of short teasers, and cinematic trailers. At the bottom of the hierarchy, we have the court jester: the live-action trailer.

Still, the fool trailers can be pretty to look at, as is a new live-action trailer for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

If you want a look at the game itself, though, check out the 20-minute gameplay walkthrough released last month, or our Xav's recent preview.
