Bethesda has announced that it will be featuring Steamworks in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The company made the announcement via Twitter earlier, and it’s good news for most. However, those of you that are still clinging on to Games for Windows Live with a deathgrip might be sad to hear that the game will not be requiring players to use GFWL.
