Did the world need a live-action Skyrim trailer? Probably not. Is it a slightly better place now that it has one? Much as we're sure people will be shouting “They threw cash at that instead of fixing this entirely tolerable mud crab clipping issue?” after the game comes out, we're gonna have to go with an emphatic yes. People fleeing in terror, still-smoldering ash raining from the sky, and Puff, the special effects dragon? This trailer may be some kind of freakish media chimera, but we'll be damned if it doesn't pull it off with style. Check out the full thing after the break, and then catch yourself uttering the phrase “transmedia synergy” and have an existential breakdown.
