Same sex marriage in Skyrim

Fancy that.

You can marry anyone in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, Bethesda has confirmed.

"The subject seems like hush hush," someone asked Bethesda marketing guru Pete Hines on Twitter.

"Not hush hush," he replied, "just not making a huge deal out of it. You can marry anyone."

Then, "Sorry, should clarify. Not any NPC, just mean any male or female. Doesn't matter what you're playing."

In Skyrim, out in November, you can have romantic relationships with NPCs. You make friends with people by doing things for them. Friends will treat you differently and will go into dungeons with you. If you own a house, your spouse will move in with you.

There's much more on the game in our Skyrim preview.
