With its release awaiting on Nov. 11, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim generated some buzz as its world map was revealed.
Skyrim, a mountainous, snowy region, is where the latest series of the role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios takes place.
The map of Skyrim was leaked from a Russian website, ElderScrolls.net on Saturday. Russian readers of Kotaku informed the site that the map was in fact handed out at the Igromir gaming show in Moscow, confirming its credibility.
Here is an English translation of the Skyrim map.
The series's previous entry, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was received well by both critics and fans upon its debut in 2006. Bethesda announced that it had shipped 1.7 million copies of the title in the month following its release, making it the fastest-selling Xbox 360 title at the time.
Compared to Oblivion, Skyrim shows a significantly larger land to explore, as the map includes nine major cities, each having their special coat of arms, surrounded by mountains, rivers and lakes.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on Nov. 11.
