Rumour: Is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Wandering to PS4?

We mentioned a couple of months ago that 2014 could well be the year of the re-release, and the slew of rumours surrounding various next-gen upgrades indicates that we may actually have a case. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the latest title to get tossed into the PlayStation 4 port pile, with publisher Bethesda’s very own website candidly acknowledging that the enormous role-playing game is coming to Sony’s super machine.

It could just be a mistake, of course, but the company has been hinting that it has a special announcement to make for a couple of weeks. We’ll apparently learn more about that on 14th January, so keep your excitement under control for now. Seeing as the original release proved an unprecedented mess on the PlayStation 3, this is one instance where an updated iteration may actually make sense.

The critically acclaimed studio revealed that it was moving onto a “new adventure” in April, which is widely believed to be Fallout 4. With that title still supposedly some way away, it wouldn’t surprise us if the company opted to squeeze the last few remaining drops out of its ageing fantasy classic. The big question is: are you ready to sink another 200 hours into exploring every crevice of the firm’s wintery escapade? Cast a spell in the comments section below.

Heh, funny that rumor shows up right after my uncle says he'd wanna get it on PS4. I'd never get it though, I don't like vanilla Skyrim. It would be fun to play it side by side with my uncle though.

Finally a re release I would buy. it would satisfy my RPG need til elder scrolls online.



Grieva said:

Sure, I'd buy. But I'd expect a few choice download contents with it, like hearthfire etc. Plus shiny up visuals.

IGN has reported that Bethesda VP of Development, Peter Hines, has taken to Twitter to clear-up the issue:

We have been working on the CMS that runs our sites. A bug caused platforms that don't exist to show up for some games Sorry for confusion.

I'm a bit gutted really, I would have loved stepping into a next gen Skyrim. Oh well, I'll have to wait for elder scrolls online.

This is one upgrade I would never do. I was unfortunate to buy the mess of a Ps3 version & I had to go out n buy again on PC so they've had more than enough of my money as it is. My PC runs the game maxed perfectly fine anyway so a Ps4 port would be an idiotic purchase. @chazaroonie Thankfully it looks to be a mistake on Bethesda's part. Thanks for sharing

Didn't play the ps3 version so I'll def buy if they upgrade and fix the nonsense, I would still prefer fallout four.



ShogunRok said:

Even if it's turned out to be a mistake on Bethesda's part, I want to know what Skyrim would run like using PlayStation Now. Better? Worse? Crashes every half an hour still?



chazaroonie said:

@MadchesterManc I have to agree that the ps3 version was a touch spoiled by the bugs. I would have got a platinum trophy if the bugs didn't get in the way. I have to admit though despite the bugs it's one of the best games I have ever played.

My avatar just got really excited, and then really glad I have a good video card in my computer.

My PS3 version worked fine for the first 100 hours then it started to freeze up alot.



Gamer83 said:

At the start of every generation there's cross-gens and re-issues of maybe a year old game or whatever but I don't think I've ever seen this many.

Oh please pick the best mods and release Skyrim for PS4. Still haven't played it. I know, I know, shame on me. I was about to but then I took an arrrow to the knee.
