Bethesda officially announced a new entry in The Elder Scrolls series, dubbed Skyrim, at the VGAs this weekend.

There's precious few details to be gleaned from the announcement, but a teaser trailer on IGN tells that dragons may be the big baddies this time around.

The title also suggests that the game will be set in Skyrim, a cold and mountainous country in the far north of Tamriel, the fictional continent that has hosted the Elder Scrolls series.

Skyrim will apparently be built on a whole new engine too, with Bethesda's community manager Nick Breckon tweeting earlier that he 'can now confirm that the TES V: Skyrim engine is all-new.'

RPS followed up with Breckon to clarify what he meant and have since confirmed that the engine is being built internally at Bethesda and is not just a new iteration of the dated Gamebryo engine used in Obvlion.

The most recent game to use the Gamebryo Engine was Fallout: New Vegas, which suffered from dated visuals as a result.
