Bethesda fully embraced internet snark during its E3 2018 press conference, with boss Todd Howard making daft references to a bunch of different jokes aimed at his company. However, the most notable gag of all came in the form of a full trailer for Skyrim: Very Special Edition, featuring American comedian, actor, and writer Michael Key...
Is The Elder Scrolls any good in virtual reality?
We’re some four hours into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR and we’ve already got a quest list longer than our armspan, but we can say definitively that this is a great version of the game. Adapted for PlayStation VR, Bethesda’s behemoth open world looks exactly like you remember it – but also...
The Elder Scrolls V's final build fares much better in virtual reality
Our early The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR impressions weren’t exactly enthusiastic. We tested the game in sub-optimal convention conditions with hellish teleportation enabled, and walked away from our demo like we’d just spent an afternoon in The Bannered Mare. The opportunity...
One of the biggest criticisms pointed at PlayStation VR is that it lacks big games, and while there’s a discussion to be had about whether lengthy releases are the right fit for virtual reality, titles don’t come much bigger than The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR. Thus, Sony has announced a new bundle for North America, which comes...
Fus ro dang
PlayStation VR, in this author’s opinion, is at its best when it’s offering brief bursts of immersive gameplay like SUPERHOT VR and Batman: Arkham VR. Despite this personal preference, it’d take a very closeted editor to ignore the pent-up demand for meatier experiences from PlayStation’s very vocal fanbase – and games don’t...
Bethesda brings the big guns
Bethesda’s bringing some of its biggest brands to PlayStation VR – and you won’t have to wait long to test them out. First up is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, which will launch for Sony’s headset on 17th November. As previously reported, it’ll cost a pretty penny – but man, it’s bleedin’ Skyrim in...
But it is the entire game
Perhaps one of the biggest shocks during Sony’s E3 2017 press conference is that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to PlayStation VR later this year. Considering that games don’t get much bigger than Bethesda’s bulky role-playing release, this should prove positive for those who’ve been waiting for some...
Coming this November
One of Bethesda's most beloved games, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is heading to PlayStation VR. Take a look at the reveal trailer above. This is great news for those looking for bigger, more meaningful games on Sony's headset. What's more, it'll be available this November. Will you be dipping back into Skyrim for its VR...
Shout it louder
Apparently this happened back in March, but it totally passed us by - and as such, it seems like the perfect news story for an especially slow Sunday. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's soundtrack is now available on Spotify - the streaming music service that you can download on PlayStation 4. If you're not sure how to steam Spotify on...
Time marches on
Bethesda actually revealed this patch before the holidays, but it's only just now made its way to the PlayStation 4 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition. Most notably, update 1.05 supposedly fixes the broken slow motion effects that come with certain perks and the Slow Time shout. Normally, you'd move at around...
Fallout 4 is the reason Skyrim got a Special Edition
Following the release and subsequent success of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition on PlayStation 4, we've seen a lot of people ponder whether Bethesda would be interested in bringing its other last-gen titles forward to Sony's console - namely Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas...
Slow mo d'oh
So, you know that last The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition update? The one that was supposed to fix some crashing issues? Well, we found out over the weekend that it actually introduced a rather nasty bug that impacts the game's slow motion mechanic. Perks like quick reflexes - which slows time when you block with a shield...
Dragon it on
The supposed crash-fixing Skyrim - Special Edition update that Bethesda released on PC last week made its way to PlayStation 4 earlier today, promising "general stability and performance improvements". Patch 1.2 should clean up the mess that the developer made with the previous update, which, for some players, introduced regular...
It's never easy, is it?
Got your nice, shiny new PS4 Pro, have you? Looking to play a cheeky bit of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition in native 4K resolution, are you? Well good for you, but our tech-headed friends over at Digital Foundry report that the remastered role-playing release actually suffers from more frame rate dips on...
Thank the Nine
Good news if you're suffering from the crashing issue that was introduced through The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition's latest PlayStation 4 patch, as Bethesda has a fix in the works. Currently available on PC, an entirely new update reportedly fixes whatever it was that was causing the crashing. It's only a matter of...
Bloody typical. Just days after you publish a review saying that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition actually runs pretty well on PlayStation 4, Bethesda goes and releases a relatively small update that causes the game to crash on a regular basis. There are currently complaints all over the web stating that the title's...
Jacob Hull still loves Tamriel's Northern realm
Along with many, I'm of the opinion that CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best – if not the best – open world role-playing game ever made. I mean, we gave it a rare 10/10 here on Push Square, after all. It improved the open world template in so many ways that make the genre...
Behind only, well, Skyrim
While it's not been a great day for Titanfall 2, Bethesda must be delighted with the sales of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. The remaster – which entered in second position on the UK sales charts – secured the second-best British debut in The Elder Scrolls series' storied history, only losing out to the,...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition is out now on PlayStation 4, and if you're looking to add something a little extra to the vanilla role-playing experience, you'll be happy to know that the remaster features mod support. In other words, you can download and install user-created content for your game. At the time of writing,...
The adventure begins
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition is a massive role-playing game that you can sink hundreds of hours into. As such, you need to carefully consider what kind of character you want to play as, lest you find yourself wanting to start over 50 hours down the line. In Skyrim, there are ten different races to choose from...
Bethesda issues statement
Bethesda's released a statement regarding its policy on review copies, and we imagine that quite a few games media writers - including ourselves - are currently sitting shaking their heads. The publisher says it won't be sending out pre-release code for any of its upcoming titles until the day before launch. "With the...
Let's find out
PlayStation Access has put together a rather good comparison video to show off the visual differences between The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition on PlayStation 4, and the original PlayStation 3 release. At over ten minutes long, it's a pretty comprehensive analysis as the team visit various locales in the game and place...
By the rays of God
PlayStation Access is at it again, pumping out another lengthy gameplay vid in which the team trek from one side of a game's map to another. This time around, they're taking at look at The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition running on PlayStation 4, so if you've been eager to see some uncut footage of the upcoming...
Kill it with fire
Dear oh dear, what a sh*tshow this is. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition got its first ever live gameplay demo on Geoff Keighley's YouTube Gaming show last night, and it's just about the crappiest thing that you'll see today. The game itself is, well, looking very much like the Skyrim that we all know and (maybe)...
Enhanced re-release is out later this month
October is well and truly packed with new PlayStation 4 releases, but we reckon that there's still just enough room for notable remasters - especially when one of the most successful role-playing games of all time is being brought forward to the current generation. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special...
"Doesn't happen without them"
As many of you will no doubt already know, Bethesda and Sony have recently come to some sort of an agreement regarding user created mods for Fallout 4 and yet-to-be-released The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition. Indeed, mod support is now officially confirmed for both titles on PlayStation 4, which is good news...
Bethesda's also backing PS4 Pro in a big way
It seems like that barbed blog post from Bethesda did the trick, as mod support will be coming to Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition on the PlayStation 4 after all. Previously, the publis
Music from the frozen North
Coinciding with the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition on the 28th October, Bethesda has revealed that the game's superb soundtrack will be adapted into a one-off live concert in London. Titled Skyrim in Concert, Jeremy Soule's score will be performed by the Winterhold Philharmonic Orchestra and...
Dropped like a bomb
After months of waiting for mod support for Fallout 4 on PlayStation 4, Bethesda has finally issued a statement that provides some clarity on the matter. We've know for a while that Bethesda has been trying to get mods up and running on the current-gen console, but for whatever reason, discussions with Sony have never quite...
Don't believe the lies
Where did this story even come from? Over the last couple of weeks, we've seen numerous sites - sites which won't be named - reporting on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition's "expanded story content", even though developer Bethesda has never mentioned, nor even hinted that such content will feature within the...
It's a bit of an overhaul
Our pals over at Digital Foundry have cast their gaze towards the freshly announced The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition, and they've really put the remaster through the ringer. According to the publication, the Special Edition, coming to PlayStation 4 this October, is no simple re-release - it is, in fact,...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim is being remastered for the PlayStation 4, with the best-selling role-playing release launching on 28th October for Sony's new-gen system. But how good does the game look on more modern hardware? Bethesda's released some screenshots which show off the upgrade's denser foliage and improved lighting. Is it an...
Fus Ro Dayum
As the leaks foretold, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is bringing its brand of open world fantasy to PlayStation 4 later this year. The remastered edition was confirmed by Bethesda during its E3 2016 press conference. Dubbed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition, it'll boast enhanced graphics thanks to a number of visual tweaks,...
Mounting evidence is always a good sign that a rumour's going to turn out to be true, so fans of Skyrim should be rubbing their hands together in anticipation right now. As spotted by NeoGAF, online retailer Base currently has The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Definitive Edition up for pre-order.
Perhaps it'll work this time?
Sharpen up your Fus Ro Dah chops, because Bethesda is apparently remastering The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the PlayStation 4. The legendary role-playing game – which sold approximately a bajillion copies on last-gen platforms – will apparently ship with mods, all of the original's expansion packs, and improved...
Knowledge is power
You may have picked up its books purely to see if they granted you a lovely skill increase, but a heck of a lot of effort must have been put into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's vast amount of in-game literature. From stories of adventure to The Lusty Argonian Maid, Bethesda's open world role-playing game was full to the brim with...
DLC pack is soaring onto Sony platforms
Ah, Skyrim. A setting full of glorious natural beauty, strange beasts, hardy people, plenty of mead, and more technical bugs than you can imagine. It's a virtual world that we're sure many readers will remember with fondness, but how would you like to explore those cold Northern reaches all over again on...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim should have got more love on this website than it did
We adored Bethesda's sprawling RPG, but couldn't wholly recommend it due to the slew of technical issues that the game experienced at launch. Sure, it's easy to overlook the odd frame-rate stutter or two — but Skyrim brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "technical inconsistencies". Despite the quality..
Such is the furore surrounding Bethesda's upcoming colossal RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, that someone has took it upon themselves to leak the game
.. 's instruction manual. That's right, the entire manual has been uploaded onto Imgur. We've decided against re-producing it here for obvious reasons, but we will include a friendly link for you. The manual includes a variety of morsels, including..
Bethesda's announced the cast list for its highly anticipated fantasy RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The game features the voice of Christopher Plummer (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) as a powerful Greybeard elder named Arngeir. Plummer's joined by Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist) as Esburn and Joan Allen (The Bourne Ultimatum) as Delphine, "one of the last remaining members of the Blades an..
It's fitting that a game that will take you about 100 hours to play through should get a trailer of similarly silly length
Bethesda's released a brand new gameplay blow-out for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and it's a mere 20-minutes in length. The footage is narrated by Todd Howard and is based on the same stretch of gameplay that the publisher showed at E3 earlier in the year. Catch all three..
Bethesda has been launching Collector's Editions for some time now, so it comes as no surprise that Skyrim will be getting its own super special version
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Collector's Edition will come pre-packed with an official art book, a making of DVD, and a 12" model of the game's primary antagonist, Alduin, perched atop a dragon wall. Oh, you also get a copy of the Elder..
