ORIGINAL STORY: Is a high-res PC texture pack for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim the "special surprise" developer Bethesda teased last week?

A NeoGAF sleuth has spotted a recently-added reference to a "HighResPack" in the game's Steam registry.

Bethesda marketing man Pete Hines announced on Friday that the impending Creation Kit update would include a little extra something, but refused to say what.

Not long until we find out for sure - Hines just Tweeted that the pack should be ready for download any moment now.
