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 graphics. Plus, as alluded above, the Sony SKU will probably actually, er, work now. Then again…
The source of the rumour is shaky, but it's been corroborated by Eurogamer.net, so we feel comfortable running this. It started with "industry insider" Shinobi602 appearing on a podcast, in which he mentioned a "remaster" which will be announced at Bethesda's E3 2016 presser. German website GamePro.de ran with it, attaching Skyrim's name to the speculation. This was then "confirmed" by NeoGAF poster Enter the Dragon Punch, before our colleagues over at Eurogamer.net put their weight behind it.
It's happening, then? Well, it makes sense. Apparently Bethesda quietly worked on a port of Skyrim to get used to the architecture of the PS4 and Xbox One a few years back, and given that this would probably sell surprisingly well, it makes sense to polish it up and put it on store shelves. Will we be returning to the RPG's dragon-infested realm, though? We can't imagine that this game has aged well in the wake of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but if it's cheap, we may give it a second look.
