Shout it louder
Like it or not, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remains a landmark role-playing game. When it first arrived in 2011, it's no exaggeration to say that the last-gen version introduced a whole new audience to the genre. In many ways, developer Bethesda Game Studios had cracked it – Skyrim carefully walked the line between being an...
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...
Get back up on the horse
If you play video games, chances are you've dabbled in Skyrim, Bethesda's benchmark-setting open world RPG that's now over a decade old. It's been released and re-released ad infinitum, so much so that it has become an established meme. Now, the company wants to have another crack at hawking paid, player-created mods,...
Update: The new Skyrim patch is available to download now on PS5 and PS4, weighing in at around 700MB. Hopefully it corrects the various technical problems that have popped up following the release of Anniversary Edition, and the free update for Special Edition. Original Story: Bethesda has confirmed that it's working on a new update for...
House of the Dragon
Some games come and go, but rarely does one come along and have such a cultural impact that players are still talking about it a decade on. Originally released for the PlayStation 3 on 11th November, 2011, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is absolutely one of those games. A fact that’s being celebrated by Bethesda today with the...
Dragonborn for this
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is officially ten years old. How time flies, eh? The open world role-playing game first released for the PlayStation 3 on the 11th November, 2011 — and boy was it a mess. Skyrim ran extremely poorly on Sony's old console — even after it had received a boatload of updates — but its poor technical...
Four Creation Club DLCs also free
If you own The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition on PlayStation 4, you can now take advantage of the free PlayStation 5 upgrade. Head to the game's product page and you should see the option over on the right of the screen. The PS5 version of the open world adventure is around 16GB in size. It runs at 60...
Save your coin
It’s been ten years since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim launched, and it’s been re-released several times in the decade or so since. Next week, yet another version of the seminal Bethesda role-playing game will deploy, this time with the moniker The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition. This will be available as an upgrade...
Shout, let it all out
Bethesda has shared more details on what we can expect from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Anniversary Edition. Due out next month on the tenth anniversary of Skyrim (it's been ten years?!), the Anniversary Edition is not a free upgrade if you already own Skyrim or Skyrim - Special Edition. So why should you buy it? Well, it...
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,...
Also works on PS4
And just like that, someone's created a mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition that makes the game run at 60 frames-per-second on PS5 (and PS4, kind of). The mod's author, MrWright, has posted a brief rundown of how it works over on YouTube, and it's safe to say that Skyrim has never ran bett
Skyrim's getting a survival mode? Cool! Or so we thought. Bethesda has revealed that it's bringing an all-new survival mode to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition. It adds all the things that you'd expect, like having to eat, drink, and sleep in order to survive. Temperature also plays a part, meaning that you'll have to...
