Bethesda shows off Skyrim character creation

The faces of the Elder Scrolls' various races

Let's be honest, the faces in Oblivion ranged from startled mannequin to deflated party balloon. It's no surprise that in our exclusive first look at Skyrim back in issue 70, Bethesda was keen to point out that characters looked more convincing.

To futher illustrate the quality and variety of faces you'll be seeing in the world, Bethesda has released montages of faces for every race in the game.

There's an impressive array of mugs on display and we're particularly pleased that Argonians and Khajiit no longer look like products of the 1970s Doctor Who costume department.
