Remember how ugly everyone was in Oblivion? Especially some of those Dunmer, yeesh. Fortunately, you won't need to spend quite so many hours on the character creation menu in Skyrim just to make someone remotely tolerable to look at. You can, of course, but you won't have to.
Just look at this Dunmer thief Bethesda just released a screenshot of. He's got a few lines in his face, but this thief is still a hundred times more attractive than most of the dark elves seen in Elder Scrolls past.
Why Dunmer? Because the Skyrim Facebook community asked for a dark elf. The accompanying blog post mentions Argonians, so hopefully we'll see the lizard people soon. Though really, how much prettier can those guys get?
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be out on November 11, 2011.
