Normally, gaming studios create cinematic trailers for their games that are either live-action or computer generated. This time, Bethesda Softworks is treating fans to something far more unique with #SkyrimMemories. The company has have teamed up with claymation animator and Youtuber, Lee Hardcastle, to create a claymation video that highlights some of Bethesda’s biggest fan memories from Skyrim.
The video is a quirky little thing that reminds me a heck of a lot of Wallace and Gromit, and Prometheus and Bob. Those two series may come from entirely different sides of the age spectrum, but Hardcastle’s #SkyrimMemories claymation is one for all ages.
The video is narrated kind of like a Discovery Channel show and tells the story of a Skyrim player. It showcases a quick day-in-the-life of the Dragonborn and explores his exploits and how they affect just about every other person in Tamriel. From stalking through the wilds and taking on Frostspiders, to beating a dragon’s head in with an axe, the Dragonborn does it all. The video also shows a few repercussions some players will face, if they manage to hit the wrong guy in the face… with that same axe.
It has not been revealed whether more #SkyrimMemories claymation videos will follow. Either way, this is a nice little addition to the hype train we are all riding as we approach the launch of the Skyrim Special Edition.
Skyrim Special Edition releases 28 October globally, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Owners of all downloadable content packages on PC will get Skyrim Special Edition for free.
