In the Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Official Gameplay Trailer, the character fights a dragon at the edge of a cliff. What is this location? Is it a real location in the game?

There are several similar cliffs in the game, I'm not sure there's enough detail in the video to tell where exactly this is. – Joachim Sauer Dec 22 '11 at 19:13

Around 2:20 in the trailer, when the camera starts flying, you can see Bleak Falls Barrow. The mountain to the right is most likely the Throat of the World. So the fighting spot should be south/south east of Bleak Falls Barrow.

Bleak Falls Barrow :) But I agree with the rest ;-) – Flater Dec 23 '11 at 9:41
It seems Im not the first one getting that wrong, if you try google black falls barrow ;) TY – Jimmy Mattsson Dec 23 '11 at 14:46
Now dear, other people's stupidity is no excuse for your own ;-) Heh – Flater Dec 27 '11 at 8:38

It is the Throat of the World -- the highest place in the game.

I don't believe this is true; You can clearly see trees and shrubs near the edge of the cliff, and even higher mountains in the distance. – Brant Dec 24 '11 at 3:30

I looked for this in game, and the trailer location doesn't exist. I'm right where it should be, but I'm flying and there is no cliff.

This location does not exist in game.

Hi Marc. welcome to . If you wish for people to look at your screenshots, please either embed them in your post or link to where they are available. Just asking people to "look at my screens" isn't really answering the question – JohnoBoy Feb 4 '12 at 21:52
Sorry I was thinking you could go to steam and look at my steam name. Idk how Embed them on here. But over all my answer is that the location does not exist – Marc Feb 5 '12 at 0:53

At 2:13, you can see Bleak Falls Barrow. next to it is the Throat of the World. The location is probally southwest of Bleak Falls.
