Army of Dragonborn statues prepped to invade Elder Scrolls V retailers

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim hits shelves in November, but if you’re worried that you might forget to pick it up, you’re in luck. You’ll find a massive, hulking, and possibly frightening reminder when you show up at some retailers.

Elder Scrolls developer Bethesda recently posted a series of photos featuring a veritable army of bronzed Dragonborn statues that will be shipping out to shops around the world ahead of of the game’s November 11 release.

Of course, anyone who dropped by a game shop around the time when Fallout 3 was released will probably be familiar with the hulking presence of statues like this, as the developer points out. While it’s a nice touch, we’re not entirely sure the game needs this extra push, given the tremendous positive reaction to the game’s trailer and early previews.

Still, that doesn’t change the fact that there’s a certain level of intimidation that comes into play when you’re trying to decide which game to buy while a sword-wielding behemoth peers over your shoulder.

Well played, Bethesda… well played.
