The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Achievements

How to slay your dragon.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim may not be out until 11th November, but its Achievements list has already leaked. The PS3 Trophies will presumably be the same.

For those who wish to remain completely unspoiled, take heed - the list below, dug up by Xbox360Achievements, contains mild spoilers.

A number of Achievements are doled out for story progression, as well as joining factions such as the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood.

There are Achievements for activities such as buying a house, getting married and escaping jail, plus the usual role-playing fare of discovering locations, completing side-quests and absorbing dragon souls. Mmm, dragon souls.

The game's highest achievement is a 50G prize for your character reaching level 50, which isn't a level-cap, merely a milestone.
