Skyrim PC manual

Hi
Is it possible to download a PC manual in advance, so I can read up a little before launch day?
Thanks

You could probably find an online rip of one from the Xbox version or a leaked early copy of the PC one, but otherwise no, I doubt they'll release the official manual until the launch. Although I'm not sure about when the preload starts; it may be unlocked then.

sorry, no official PC manual release this early. And even when the game is out, I'm still skeptical we will ahve one... but there was a leaked 360 manual posted on the webs

Really? I could have sworn other Bethesda games all had online manuals with them, although to be honest I've never really bothered trying to read any.

Nobody is saying there won't be a manual, just that it's not available yet...

Ok, that guy is saying it, then. ;-)

I have Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas on Steam, and all of them have a manual PDF available. The manuals are actually linked from the store page, they don't show up as downloads in your Steam libray.

Its somewhat funny. There isn't a single boxed game I have that I didn't read the manual for before even starting the game, including ones with terribly long and pointless/outdated manuals like WoW classic.

Since buying on Steam I haven't read a single word of any manual X.x

I tend to read them for new games that aren't out yet, sometimes the manuals are available before the game itself unlocks. Especially for titles that unlock later here in Europe.

Yeah, I imagine if they release it with the preload I'll be all over it just to read up on any quirky things not explained through tutorials or common sense.

Thanks for the help, but I already searched with Google. I was hoping someone had managed to get a copy of it and was willing to share.
I bet you could sit on an ice cream cone and then tell me the flavour of the ice cream

Thanks again
