What’s better than being the nearly immortal descendant of ancient dragons? How about being a werewolf, too? That’s right, in Bethesda’s newest addition to their blockbuster Elder Scrolls saga, they’ve granted players the power of lycanthropy.
Now, this isn’t your grandaddy’s loveable, shape-shifting Man-Wolf…Skyrim has given us a full on, blood drenched rendition of the ‘beast within’.
Get caught stealing? Don’t pay a fine…tear off the guard’s arm instead!!! Stuck in a fight with a fire-breathing dragon? Shape-shift into your hairier form and inflict some real damage on that winged bully!!! There’s literally endless opportunities for Werewolvian savagery that you can inflict on the world…but before you get to any of that, you need to take part in the werewolf blood ritual. It’s a bit more difficult than it sounds, so the folks over at GameSpot have conveniently recorded the necessary steps in your road to lycanthropy.
