Ready to slay some dragons in Bethesda’s upcoming RPG, The Elder Scrolls v: Skyrim? Well you better be, because the developer has just announced on its blog that the game has gone gold – one week ahead of its official release date. In case you didn’t know, going gold means that the game has been approved in its final build and is ready to be shipped out in its current state (not 500,000 CD sales). This means that the game is mere moments away from our eager hands.

While Bethesda has been known to push out buggy initial releases of its RPGs (mostly due to the sheer size and complexity), fingers crossed that Skyrim won’t suffer from the same fate. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim goes on sale next week on November 11th for Windows, Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Anybody planning to pick it up on day one?
