New Skyrim trailer showcases the game's brutal animations

Daniel McCall

To hold you over until Skyrim's release, Bethesda sent out a new trailer that highlights Skyrim's new and improved animations you'll be seeing as you wander about Skyrim, killing anything that comes at you.

At least, that's what they say it's about. Sure, we get to see some pretty slick new animations in the video, but it's really just a montage of brutal, bloody deaths of humans and beasts alike by the hands of Skyrim's Dragonborn protagonist.

No matter what you call the trailer, there's plenty of brutal action and fairly smooth animations to check out in the video, so go ahead and give it a look directly below.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is due out on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 11. Gamers who pre-ordered on Steam can start pre-loading the game right now.
