The open world of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is renowned for its immensity. And this concerns not so much the size and variability of locations, but a large number of different activities. However, have you ever wondered how large one of the key provinces of Tamriel is in terms of the number of its inhabitants… We will reveal this secret.
How many NPCs live in Skyrim
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has over 300 locations of different sizes and degrees of elaboration. At the same time, the largest and most populated cities in total nine… Armed with a calculator, we conducted a kind of population census of all residents. results may surprise…
It seemed that in such a huge world there are many more characters (it is not known exactly how many random encounters in the game and NPCs living outside the city). That being said, the game’s population has grown with DLC. Perhaps, in 2021, 437 “NPCs” will hardly surprise anyone, but if you remember that the game was released 10 years ago, then for that time it was very impressive.
Write in the comments how these numbers correspond to your feelings when visiting the city in the game.
