Bethesda reveals The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition
Bethesda has revealed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting an Anniversary Edition later this year.
The original game launched on November 11 2011, and the Anniversary Edition will release exactly ten years after that – on November 11 2022. Bethesda made the announcement during QuakeCon, where they shared that the game will launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. The game will contain all content from the Special Edition, including an improved version of the game and the three expansions. In addition to that, this new version will also bring at least five hundred features from the Creation Club, mods like new missions, dungeons, weapons and enemies.
Everyone who already owns Skyrim’s Special Edition will be able to upgrade to the Anniversary Edition, but it has not yet been revealed if there are additional costs involved. When the Anniversary Edition releases on November 11, a current-gen patch will also launch for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S players, including visual improvements. Players with a PS4 or Xbox One version of the game will get to upgrade their game for free.
