Skyrim Strategy Guide is Over 650 Pages


Everything about the Elder Scrolls games is massive.  Skyrim might be taking it to a whole new level of massiveness, however.  Though the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim speed run by Bethesda took roughly 2 hours and 15 minutes, it's safe to say that if you play through the game completing all the quests you should get several hundred hours of gameplay.  According to Prima Games, the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim strategy guide, which just arrived, is over 650 pages in length.

Below you can see a Prima Games official holding the meaty strategy guide.  I've never been one to rely on guides, but with the in-depthness of Skyrim, this could definitely come in handy.

According to Prima Games, the Skyrim strategy guide contians a large map poster inside labeled with important locations, major roads, and hold capitals.  It also has multiple character builds based on hundreds of hours of playtesting revealing exactly what skills, perks, equipment,a nd other items to pick, and how to advance through the game, no matter the type of character you want to be.

In addition it shows where every rare item is ranging from Skill Books, Uniques, Weapons, every single Shout, Dragon Priest Masks, and much more!

Wait, there's more!  The guide gives you a comprehensive tour of every single location, with every major exploration point receiving a walkthrough flagging important items, with detailed maps.

If you're a Skyrim junky, this is definitely the book for you.  The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Prima Official Game Guide retails on Amazon for only $16.19, which is a pretty decent price considering the value of the contents.  This guide has everything you could possibly want to know about Skryim.

***Update*** Bethesda's Production Director thinks that Fallout 3 is the 2nd best game he's worked on, the first hasn't been released...yet.  Is he referring to Skyrim?***
