A lot of screenshots you see in this business, especially around this time of year, have been, let's say, "touched up". Made to look a little prettier than they will be when the game actually ships. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim doesn't do pretty.

And these new screens for the sprawling RPG show why that's such a good thing. These are real screens, what the game will actually look like for those with a decent PC, and the whole Conan-meets-Rohan thing they've got going on here looks all the better for it.
