Sure there’s always been some level of consequence in the Elder Scrolls games for doing wrong. You get chased down by guards and taken to the clink, grease a few palms and you’re free again. Skyrim however, is taking a slightly different approach if you intend to go on murdering its citizens. As it turns out, family members of the slain will hunt you down like the dog you are.
According to a recent post on EB Australia, if you murder someone in your travels, their family members will try to get revenge on you the next time they see you.
We’ll see how it plays out in game, but it could add a pretty neat dynamic to Skyrim.
