Arrow to the knee, lose a turn
Not content with publishing Skyrim on basically modern video game format, Bethesda wants to dominate your dining room table, too. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Adventure Game is a fully fledged tabletop RPG that brings the snowy region of Tamriel into the realm of board games. The game is being created by...

There was no plan bee
"Hey, you. You're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right? You walked right into that Imperial ambush; same as us and that thief over there." How many times are you willing to admit to hearing those introductory sentences of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? We're sure some of you are well into the double figures,...

Lots of septims
There's plenty of cool video game merchandise out there: figurines, t-shirts, wallets... Oh, and life size busts of your favourite characters. Yep, Bethesda's online store now has 600 hand-painted, polystone Dragonborn statues for sale. They stand at 25 inches and cost $650 a pop. If you'd rather, though, you can pay for one in...

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...

To be fair, it didn't boot half of the time
As much as it pains us to say it, the PlayStation 3 didn’t provide the best home for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In addition to late expansion packs and the usual roster of Bethesda bugs, the game was borderline broken on Sony’s popular platform. Things did improve over time, but not to a degree where...

Fus ro duh
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...

Dragonborn to win
Running from 1st June to 4th August, mammoth online retailer Amazon.co.uk hosted a poll which pitted some of the biggest games of this console generation against each other in a tournament-style showdown. And Bethesda's open world epic, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, came out on top. The 2011 release fought off Super Mario Galaxy,...

Loot the complete adventure this summer
As expected, Bethesda has officially confirmed that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition will saddle up and trot onto store shelves on 4th June in North America and 7th June in Europe. The re-release – which bundles the core campaign with all of its DLC – will set you back $59.99/£39.99...

All you ever wanted, all you ever needed
Bethesda may have turned its attention away from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in favour of a more grotesque experience, but that’s not stopping the publisher from repackaging the title with all of its DLC.

Fus ro dah
With hundreds of hours already on offer, Bethesda has ruled out the possibility of any further The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim content. Writing on its official blog, the company revealed that it's leaving behind the snowy peaks of Hrothgar in favour of its (hopefully warmer) next big adventure. "Skyrim has been a labour of love for us since...

New features added to open world epic
Bethesda will freshen up the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PlayStation 3 later today, with the publisher confirming that the recently announced v1.9 update will deploy shortly. As previously detailed, the patch will include a laundry list of bug fixes, in addition to a new Legendary...

Keep on slayin’
You have to give Bethesda credit for continuing to support The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for more than a year – and it seems like they have no intention of stopping just yet. The company has announced a brand new update for the open world epic, and it adds a couple of surprising new features. Firstly, a new ‘Legendary’...
Friday1st Mar 2013
Consider Dawnguard’s arrival on PlayStation 3 a late Hallowe’en present from Bethesda. The latest The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim expansion is full of vampires, creepy rituals, spooky old castles, and a lot of violence. There’s also a lot of epic questing thrown in for good measure, too. Just like Dragonborn, there’s an awful lot...

Sitting beside the furnace
Hearthfire isn’t quite what you’d expect from a piece of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC. This doesn't offer an epic journey into the heart of an unknown land – it’s about expanding your experience through lovey-dovey stuff like making you and your spouse a new residence from scratch, or adopting children. In...

Back to the brink
After more than a year without DLC, the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim finally gets some love from Bethesda. In this case, the latest Skyrim DLC to release on other platforms is the first on PS3 – and it’s arguably the best of the bunch. In an attempt to make up for the delay, Bethesda and Sony saw fit to...
Friday1st Feb 2013
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s long-overdue DLC will finally stumble onto the PlayStation 3 in North America this month. The first pack, Dragonborn, will arrive on 12th February, and will be followed by Hearthfire on 19th February and Dawnguard on 26th February. There’s no word on a European release just yet, but publisher...

Sound the trumpets
It’s been a long, laborious journey, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s DLC will finally arrive on PlayStation 3 in February. Bethesda confirmed the glad tidings in a PlayStation Blog post, noting that Dragonborn, Hearthfire, and Dawnguard will all launch within the window, and will be accompanied by a 50 per cent discount to...
Monday3rd Dec 2012
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s latest expansion pack Dragonborn will fly onto the PlayStation 3 in early 2013, publisher Bethesda has announced. The add-on is due out on the Xbox 360 tomorrow, but will officially spread to Sony’s system next year. It concludes almost a year of excuses from the developer, as content has frequently sk

Keep your cool
You’d be forgiven for forgetting about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s DLC, but Bethesda promises that the content is still coming to the PlayStation 3. The publisher has spent an entire year trying to port the title’s expansion packs to Sony's system, but has so far failed to launch any post-release content for the platform...
Thursday8th Nov 2012
After what seems like an eternity, Bethesda has confirmed that it is "close" to releasing new content for the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Technical issues have delayed the content for months, despite it launching on the Xbox 360 and PC. But in a nonchalant Tweet posted earlier today, the publisher revealed that...
Monday29th Oct 2012
As leaked by Amazon Germany earlier today, Bethesda is planning to release a Premium Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in certain territories across Europe. The specially prepared bundle will include a copy of the game, world map, t-shirt, novel, and six postcards. The package will release in the UK, Germany, and Benelux, but...
Friday5th Oct 2012
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s second major expansion pack, Hearthfire, launched on PC this week – but the post-release discussion has been focused solely on the content’s absence on PlayStation 3. Bethesda admitted recently that it was struggling to get the expansion – and its predecessor, Dawnguard – to run on...
Sunday9th Sep 2012
While Xbox 360 owners enjoy the second The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC pack, developer Bethesda has yet to release the first expansion on PlayStation 3. In fact, the company has revealed that it's struggling to get the content running on Sony’s platform at all – an unsurprising admission considering the game’s troubled launch...

No solution in sight
Bethesda has warned that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC pack may never release on PlayStation 3. The content launched on Xbox 360 earlier this year, prompting the developer to release a statement noting that it was having difficulties with the PS3. Those issues are ongoing according to the company’s community...

The long and winding road
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will finally be updated to version 1.7 in North America this week. European players will have to wait an extra week, because, well, it’s customary on these shores, isn’t it? The patch implements a number of bug fixes, including “general memory and stability optimisations”. Unfortunately,...

Long wait ahead
Most developers have come to terms with the PlayStation 3’s unique architecture. Unlike at the start of the generation, it's now rare for a multiplatform title to perform significantly worse on Sony’s black box of tricks – but Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remains a notable exception. The title launched in a...

What's the problem?
Microsoft’s exclusivity deal with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is up, which means that last month’s Dawnguard expansion can finally arrive on PlayStation 3. That is, if it’s actually in development. “We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise...
Thursday31st May 2012
We’re pretty sure the flow of epic announcements isn’t going to stop until next week now. Bethesda’s the latest publisher to join the pre-E3 party, releasing the first trailer for Skyrim’s upcoming Dawnguard expansion pack. There’s all manner of goodness in the trailer, including a monologue that’s certain to get your...

Skyrim connection confirmed
It’s too hot for classic inglenook fireplaces here in the UK this week, but that’s not stopped the people of Skyrim from collecting around the hearth. Bethesda, the publisher of the critically acclaimed RPG, has filed a trademark for “Hearth Fire”, the latest in string of registrations relating to the popular...
Friday25th May 2012
The next big addition to Bethesda’s enormous role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is kind of unexpected. The publisher announced on its official blog that it is adding mounted combat to the game, meaning you won’t even need to leave the comfort of your horse before ruthlessly slashing another dragon to death. There’s no...
