The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

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.
