Ever sinceÂ BethesdaÂ 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 toÂ Pete Hines,Â VP of PR and Marketing at Bethesda, we now know that it is thanks to their brand new engine.
According To Him â€œ6 gigs: New engine & weâ€™re much better at compression (art/voice/data). Itâ€™s huge yet more optimized than weâ€™ve had before. And faster.â€
So there you go, you Skyrim fans can now rest and know that nothing has beenÂ sacrificedÂ to fit the game on oneÂ disc.
Skyrim will beÂ releasedÂ on November 11th, 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
