Why Skyrim Is Just 6GB

Ever since Bethesda announced that Skyrim would take up just 6GB on a disk, many gamers were puzzled, how could such a huge and expansive game be so small?

Thanks to Pete Hines, VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda, we now know that it is thanks to their brand new engine.

According To Him “6 gigs: New engine & we’re much better at compression (art/voice/data). It’s huge yet more optimized than we’ve had before. And faster.”

So there you go, you Skyrim fans can now rest and know that nothing has been sacrificed to fit the game on one disc.

Skyrim will be released on November 11th, 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
