Just a quick update for all you Skyrim fans; Bethesda's Pete Hines has confirmed via his official Twitter feed that armour and weaponry in Skyrim will not degrade over time and constant use; a first for the venerable series. A fan quizzed Hines on the matter late last night, to which Hines offered a categorical denial; no weapon or armour degradation in Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Hines explained that the team at Bethesda opted to remove the feature in favor of allowing you to further upgrade and even create your very own weaponry and armour in Skyrim, instead of forcing you to spend "lots of time getting them back to where they were". Personally, we're pretty chuffed with the news, which is perfectly in-line with Bethesda's streamlined but not dumbed-down approach for Skyrim. [Twitter]
