This is a game of possibilities. You must fight your way through the game as a fearless "Dovakiin". To survive you can become a hero, thief, murderer, or even a noble. Try and survive the legendary ancient one "Alduin".
Skyrim's main story revolves around the players characters's efforts to defeat Alduin, a Dragon who is prophesied to destroy the world. Set two hundred years after Oblivion, the game takes place in the fictional province of Skyrim. Over the course of the game, the player completes quests and develops their character by improving their skills. Unlike previous Elder Scrolls games, Skyrim does not require the player to select a character class at the beginning of the game, negating a problem the development team felt previous entries had by forcing the player into a rigid play-style too early in the game. Skyrim continues open world the tradition of its predecessors by allowing the player to travel anywhere in the game world at any time and to ignore or postpone the main story line indefinitely.
