Bethesda is getting ready to deploy The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim next month and has now presented a stunning, to put it mildly, live action trailer for the new title, showing off the start of a battle against a dragon.

Skyrim is expected by the legions of Elder Scrolls fans, as well as lots of other gamers, largely because Bethesda has promised a new graphics engine, as well as a new epic adventure that awaits players who take on the role of a Dovhakiin (Dragonborn in the game's language).

We've already heard just how important dragon battles will be, but this new live action trailer for Skyrim, showing the beginning of one, is nothing short of mesmerizing, while the production values resemble almost any kind of Hollywood blockbuster.

Check out the video above and be prepared to wait some more before you can get your hands on Skyrim, out on November 11 for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
