Yes, only a single screen shot was show off on Bethesda’s blog today, as a reaction to fans wanting to get just a taste of what the visuals in the game will bring, considering it’s running on a new engine (dubbed the “Creation Engine”) and all. I don’t know about you, but I figured the landscape would look amazing, but what I want to see are character models because you know they looked fugly in Oblivion and the last two Fallout games. Just saying.

As the image would suggest, Game Informer has more detailed information about the game and the new graphics engine behind it, most of which will likely show up in a soon-to-hit issue.
