Skyrim almost had chicken police

The number eleven is shaping up to be the most highly anticipated set of digits this year, as the fifth Elder Scrolls game gets set to launch in November, the eleventh month, on the eleventh day in the eleventh year…of this millennium.

It’s practically right around the corner, so hopefully  by now, Bethesda will have ironed out any bizarre kinks, such as chickens who joined a neighbourhood crime-watch. Wait, what?

Speaking to PC Gamer, Bethesda’s Executive Producer, Todd Howard, explained how the development staff were having trouble at one point with the the chickens in the game, as they weren’t interacting with the radiant story gameplay mechanic properly.

“This was a bug, lately we realised that chickens were reporting crimes. I found that very funny. That was just last week. Why are we getting caught? Oh, the CHICKENS are reporting the crimes! That actually took us a while to track down, that bug. Like, why is this happening?”

Radiant story, is a feature that is set to shape the events of Skyrim around the choices that players make. Depending on how you play the game, you might re-encounter certain characters that you have come across, who may or may not help you in your quests.

I am kind of sad that we won’t have any vigilante poultry to deal with however…
