One of the big features of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is that the game features Dragons that will randomly drop in on your adventure. Todd Howard recently spoke on the dragon factor of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, how often you’ll be facing them and when.
Howard explained in a recent interview that you’ll need to do a little of the main quest before you’re up to your ears in dragons.
“You have to do a little bit of the main quest – just the initial stuff – for the dragons to really start appearing, because it sits with the story,” Howard said. “After that point, the more of the main quest you do, the more Dragons you’ll run into… It’s hard to quantify it, they appear every once in a while. Not at a rate that is annoying… it still feels special.”
Since The Elder Scrolls V, is a game that can be played in any number of ways, Howard did reveal that players who don’t want to follow the main quest line, “won’t get spammed with dragons.”
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is due out on November 11th, 2011 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
