Do you think they finally fixed that ?

A game without ladders is no game at all.

If you build your game so it doesn't need ladders, then it's not a problem if you don't have any. I played Morrowind and Oblivion for dozens of hours each and never even noticed it didn't have ladders.

I don't know, but I don't really care one way or another. It's something I never noticed until Bethesda started talking about why they don't have them. It'd be cool if they fixed it, but I'd rather they spent their time fixing other issues with the engine.

I don't think so. I know Oblivion didn't have ladders because of A.I. problems.

#6 Posted by thehexeditor (1404 posts) -

Minor spoilers, but the ladders are executed at the beginning of the game.

I did not know until viewing this thread that nether oblivion or morrowind had ladders in them, and ive played both. I guess that shows how much it mattered.

@CptChiken: Fallout also . When you think about it a game without ladders is just one big ramp .

#10 Posted by Stingraymond (84 posts) -

If not I won't play it.

Why use ladders when you can use the tail of a dragon?

#12 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

Maybe you only get ladders if you buy the game new

#13 Posted by bashit (3 posts) -

Not too sure that it will have ladders. if skyrim has ladders they were not in any gameplay videos they showed.

#14 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@bashit: Maybe the entire game is one big ladder

#15 Posted by bioblood22 (420 posts) -

Really? A topic about this? ...

@left4doof: if that's true then it should be called elderscrolls ladder instead of elderscrolls skyrim

#19 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@bashit: That's what they want you to think

#20 Posted by Village_Guy (2662 posts) -

Cancel you preorders my good sirs.

Ladders are nowhere to be seen in Skryim!

#21 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@Village_Guy: but what if they are a pre order bonus

#22 Posted by MetalMoog (908 posts) -

I think it may be a better question to ask:

Will Skyrim have Snakes?

You simply cannot have Ladders without Snakes.

#23 Posted by Creamypies (4091 posts) -

My father was a ladder, and he passed away recently... so I hope there aren't any in Skyrim. Don't want those stark reminders.

#24 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@MetalMoog: What about shoots ?

You can't have snakes without planes.

No you can't have snakes and planes without Samuel Jackson.

@bioblood22: So skyrim will have planes snakes and Samuel Jackson .

Ladders will not be in the game at launch, but they've been confirmed as one of the first DLC options. Later DLC will add the ability to purchase armor for your ladders.

How dare you sir! It's people like you that are holding gaming back!

You......you're right.....I can't believe....all this time I didn't know.....Ah fuck it. I rule. =)

It does my heart good to see that the two solid jokes about ladders in Skyrim were already made before I got here. Excellent work!

People in the olden fantasy days, was not able to climb ladders.

#33 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@Ravenlight: But are the ladders already on the disk ?

#34 Posted by jozzy (2035 posts) -

I think it's been at least a year since I have climbed a ladder in real life. Just give me some elevators and escalators in skyrim.

Not a big fan of ladders in Dark Souls either. You kill those gargoyles and see a beautiful bell tower. Then they spoil all that atmosphere by making you climb that majestic bell tower on an endless, ugly, rusted ladder... Yes. I seriously was thinking that at the time.

#35 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@jozzy: When I see a ladder in real life I almost always climb it just for the lolz

Parts of the ladders will ship on-disc. The rungs will be streamed directly from download servers to your platform of choice upon purchase, though.

Ladders confirmed! DLC 400 Micro points.

@Ravenlight: Is there a price difference between the animated ladder skins and the static ones ,can the ladder skins be applied to dragons at no additional charge ? And can you buy all the ladders in advance and get 15% off ?

  • Bethesda is currently working on a few Ladder-related promotional tie-ins. For example, you can get a code from Subway to unlock the Leopard-Print Ladder and a Skylanders Ladder is also in the works.
  • A Ladder Pass will also be available to unlock LP ladders as they become available. These Ladders may be purchased piecemeal as well.
  • Animated Ladder skins will be available on a separate pass but will not be available a la carte.
  • Certain Ladders will be console-exclusive, with the PS3 getting Argoniladders, 360 with Bretonladders. and the PC with Nordladders.
  • As the Nukeladder will not be made available in Japan, the HelloLadder will be a Japan-only exclusive.
  • Do not confuse genuine Ladders with the similarly-named Bladders that are affiliated with Mojang's Scrolls. These are of inferior quality and are not available in Skyrim.

all dragons are whores, lemme tell you about the ladder theory

#41 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@Ravenlight: But can the ladder skins be applied to dragons and if so will they cover the entire dragon or will it look like a ladder tattoo ?

#42 Posted by sesquipedalophobe (183 posts) -

Sure Skyrim will have ladders, only they'll act as doors to fantastical loading screens. I'm more worried about the jell-o jiggler corpses as a result of my devastating attacks.

Apologies, that was only part of the press release.

  • Dragonladders will be unlockable through achievements after the player has purchased any Ladder pack or redeemed a Ladder code.
  • Dragonladders will replace all dragons in the game. As such, there will be an infinite number of Dragonladders.
  • Dragonladders are powerful Ladders containing the soul of a dragon. They will spawn dynamically in the world and interact with NPCs and other monsters.
  • When defeated, the player will be able to absorb Dragonladder souls to unlock powerful Laddershouts. Bethesda has not released any more Laddershout information at this time.
  • To configure Ladders, players will sign into LadderLeague(tm). Ladderleague is the new ingame Ladder store which will be accessible through the ingame Ladder menu.
  • An internet connection will be required for all Ladders. Players who do not have an internet connection will still be able to play the base Skyrim game, however all Ladder-related content will be disabled.

Here is some concept art:

You can join the Zenimax Ladder Club and receive* exclusive RAGE, Fallout, Dishonored, and Shinji Makami ladder skins.

*You must have purchased these games to receive skins, in the case of Shinji Makami, you have to purchase him, too.

#47 Posted by mandude (2666 posts) -

Goddamnit. When will they make an Elder Scrolls for an avid ladder enthusiast like myself?

#48 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

@Ravenlight: What does Shinji Makami get if he plays Skyrim

Wait, so if I put the ladder on the skylanders portal I get to use that ladder ingame and level him up?

Maybe you just missed it the first time around? Ladders Confirmed.
