While fans of the Elder Scrolls series are literally frothing at the mouth in anticipation of Skyrim’s release later this week, non-fans are standing by wondering what all of the fuss is about. Oh great, another game with dragons and knights and clanging swords. Well, to be honest, it is a bit more than that.

Bethesda’s latest trailer for the game shows off a bit of the variation that exists in the game world. There are a lot of creatures and beings throughout the lands in Skyrim and they come from all walks of life, literally. The latest trailer focuses on the animations in the game and how varied the lifeforms you will encounter actually are. It appears as though you will be seeing a little bit of everything during this trip, from walking trees to giants to huge, lumbering dragons.

Maybe all of those fans do have reason to be excited.
