Exclusive Premium Maps to Come With Skyrim Pre-Orders
A recent post in the BethSoft Blog reveals that all Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim pre-orders will come with a physical premium map made of a “high grade material similar to burlap”, which is quite different from the maps included with Morrowind and Oblivion.
Check the shot below for a hint of what the map will look like:
From the BethSoft Blog post:
“Making real maps of our fantasy worlds is an Elder Scrolls tradition. As Todd Howard said all the way back in a Morrowind blog post, “There’s something about having a physical object in your hands that feels like it’s part of this other world, that you are that person in the game, finding your way among the hills.”
With that in mind, today we are announcing that anyone who preorders Skyrim will automatically receive a premium quality world map with their copy as a no-extra-cost-to-you bonus.
To guarantee your copy of your premium quality world map, please pre-order today.
Update: We’ve received plenty of questions about the map. So you know, it’s a high-grade material that has a feel similar to burlap, and will be available in North America and European territories. There will be a regular paper map included in all copies of the game, but if you want to get the premium map, we recommend pre-ordering the game.”
