I almost live in a cave which means no internet.A lot of new games need registration and/or the net running in-game.Will Skyrim be the same?

Yes, you do. I believe it is needed for unlocking the game, and there is definitely a day one patch to be downloaded.

After the files are decrypted and everything, you don't need internet to run Skyrim.

What day one patch
jadaira - 5 years ago
there was a patch released on the day skyrim came out (pre-release review copies didn't have the patch) steam activation requires an internet connection, and steam must be running (even in offline mode) There are hacks around this, the same/similar ones that are used for illegitimate versions of the game, so there are work arounds, but I think all of them are a little bit in violation of the eusa (aka a little bit illegal)

To summarize everyone elses posts....
>>>>You only need internet the first time you start the game.<<<<<<
You need to install the initial patch and decrypt the game.

You need internet access when you first install the game and a Steam account. After that, other than optional periodic patches an internet connection is not required.
