You’ll be doing a lot of shouting in the next Elder Scrolls game, according to director Todd Howard. Skyrim centers around abilities known as Dragon Shouts, which are separate from magic but also deliver a range of powerful effects. Historically, this is a power reserved for individuals known as dragonborn; the first emperor, Tiber Septim, was one such person. A major part of your adventure in Skyrim involves gaining access to these powers, which typically requires either defeating a dragon or uncovering words of power from other sources. Players will collect over twenty shouts, each with multiple words to them, and shouts can be used at varying strengths depending on the number of words.
Shout, shout, let it all out starting November 11 of this year.
