According to Hines, gamers will be able to disable HUD display completley, all they need to do is set the opacity of the overlay to zero. This will allow players to hide compass; health, stamina and magicka bars; and crosshairs, and play Skyrim without any sorts of visual impediments.

Plants, flowers and stems will disappear physically from surroundings and environments while harvesting inorder to reflect the fact the players have harvested them.

It was confirmed in the past, the Speechcraft minigame from Oblibion has been completely replaced by a new system which is similar to Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas.
