In Skyrim, can you play past the game’s final quest?

Bethesda games, sadly, have been going downhill with respect to playing past the ending quest:

  • In Oblivion, you could play past the game’s ending and even got a special piece of armor from it.
  • In Fallout 3, you couldn’t play past the ending without buying the Broken Steel DLC.
  • In Fallout: New Vegas, you couldn’t play past the ending. Period.

How does Skyrim handle the ending mission in this respect?


Quoting developer Todd Howard:

“When you finish the main quest you’ll be able to continue playing.”

And in reponse to if Skyrim’s ending will be like Fallout 3, where you had to buy DLC:

“No, that was a mistake.”
