  • A loading screen will follow after which you will find yourself transported to Riverwood with a test dovahkiin to run around with.
  • Spend at least 10 minutes ingame before you exit again.

Testing To Do List

  • Is the game performing as expected? You should have stable 60FPS on all but the most low-end systems.
    • If you increased your frame cap, is the game capped at the correct value?
  • Does turning the camera feel smooth?
    • If not, you might want to adjust Look Sensitivity in the options (Settings > Gameplay)
  • Any stuttering or screentearing? Try a different way of capping your frame rate and forcing VSYNC.
  • Are you experiencing motion sickness?
    • Increase the FOV.

DONE!
