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 comparable footage in sequence.

Unsurprisingly, the current-gen remaster looks far more graphically impressive, with better textures, lighting, and draw distance. The latter is arguably one of the biggest improvements here, as you can now stand on top of a mountain and look out over the land without the smaller details fading into nothingness. Surely that's a win for immersion? The whole thing just looks a heck of a lot more vibrant, too, with the last-gen version seeming incredibly washed out when compared. To be honest, we're looking forward to seeing how the release looks in native 4K resolution on the PS4 Pro.

How do you think the Special Edition looks? Keep the skies clear in the comments section below.
