Yes there will be houses, it'll probably work similar to oblivion, but there may be a choice of houses in a larger variety of places.
Spouces will probably work in a similar way, and so will companions, but we will try to make it a bit more in-depth and actually interesting being married and having followers. ;)
Magic will be almost entirely removed for all races. There will be racial bonuses in terms of skills. At the moment we havn't decided about racial powers, most likely there will be some form of power available, but not in the same was as in skyrim.
The races have not been decided on completely either, most likely it'll be : Hobbit, Men of Eriador, Men of Rhovanion, Gondorian, Men of the Rohirrim, Sindar Elves, Nandor Elves, Dunedain and Beornings.

Can you not read the sodding posts, you've asked this before and you've had an answer.
If you feel you can use your eyes, you could read the FAQ above and it will answer your stupid question!

Skyrim was overly cramped, we want to conduct a feeling of scale so the map will actually feel rather empty. The towns and cities will actually have atmosphere to them though, unlike vanilla ;)

The engine already has occlusion culling, it does have to run on consoles too ;)
I cant think of an engine to date that renders things that the camera can't see :P

Yes, we plan on making it as free as possible in terms of where you fight in a battle. We will have huge armies of NPCs of which only the nearest 50 or so will be real, and the further away ones will be LOD with very basic AI. We will try and change this dynamically, so if you dcide to run out into the mordor army at the seige of Minas Tirith then the LOD will change to real NPCs and you will be murdered ;)

You seem to be saying there there are only two types of inventory possible. What about something like in Kingdoms of Amalur, which may I say is a far better system than Skyrim's.

The Deus Ex inventory (from the original deus ex ;) ) , is utterly inappropriate for a game such as this, which, like skyrim will involve carrying a lot of stuff so inventory tetris like that is rendered pointless.
SkyUI, as good as it is, we'll probably use (if we get permission) but alter heavily to make it more suitable. The magic menu will be stripped out, and the items most likely be completely re-organised.

Short answer: Not really :P
Long answer: Its faster this time, because we are all more experienced with modding, and we've got everything planned and organised before the CK was even released. This has meant that we have the heightmap finalised and the first regions generated after only 4 weeks of the CK being released. ;)
