    Default Why Skyrim Is Just 6GB


    Ever since Bethesda announced that Skyrim would take up just 6GB on a disk, many gamers were puzzled, how could such a huge and expansive game be so small?

    Thanks to Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda, we now know that it is thanks to their brand new engine.
    According To Him
    6 gigs: New engine & were much better at compression (art/voice/data). Its huge yet more optimized than weve had before. And faster.
    So there you go, you Skyrim fans can now rest and know that nothing has been sacrificed to fit the game on one disc.
    Skyrim will be released on November 11th, 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

    Lets hope this is true and not lacking in content.

    Though the map size is smaller than Cyrodiil, its should still be good.

    as much as i look forward to it, they have a habit of saving space by recycling things, I recall one of their games a while back where there were tons of available dungeons, in an open landscape, very free form, except all the dungeons had one of three available floorplans. I am not certain but I think it was elder scrolls 2
