The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim turns ten years old on the 11th November. And if you haven't already heard, Bethesda is releasing the game again. Skyrim: Anniversary Edition arrives on PlayStation 5, packaging the massive open world adventure and its expansions alongside a whole load of Creation Club content. New quests, player homes, weapons, armour, items, systems, and more have been added.
If you already own Skyrim: Special Edition on PS4, you can take advantage of a free PS5 upgrade. Owners can also upgrade to the Anniversary Edition for a discounted price.
Anyway, Anniversary Edition's launch trailer is embedded above, reminding us that Skyrim first released a whole decade ago. And yes, that is a Push Square accolade right at the start of the video — although it should be noted that it was just one of our Games of the Decade. Sneaky!
Will you be journeying back to Skyrim? We dare you to finally awake in the comments section below.
Is this some ROM hack I don't know about 🙄🙄 I'm not amused suprised?
So we’re just not going to see next gen gameplay until release? Lol
@thechetearly let's be honest, "next gen gameplay" is just going to be the same as last-gen gameplay but 60fps (at least, it'd better be 60 FPS) and with free fishing and a few other mods. I don't really see the point in seeing a video of that
This has to be full 4K 60fps on PS5 right? I don't know why they haven't said what the upgrades are?
@thechetearly Much like they do with their reviews on some titles.
I'm actually looking forward to this, and the fact that Skyrim is being "released again" is only really funny because of Bethesda's habit of releasing it on anything with a CPU - if it were any other game we wouldn't even really be calling it a re-release, since it's just the Special edition with a bit of extra DLC included. Sure, there's a native PS5 version too which is new but I'm not going to complain about a free upgrade.
The last time I really played Skyrim was back on PS3, I've tried it for a couple of hours on the PS4 version (on PS5) but it'll be nice to have some new content and native PS5 version
Love Skyrim. Have it in 360 and psvr. But tbh never did I think "if only it had fishing" during my playthroughs... So will probably be skipping this one.
@Bleachedsmiles yeah, I'm also a bit puzzled about the topicality of a fishing mechanic in a game where you can just wade into the water and grab fish with your bare hands.😅
Yo, Pushsquare finally getting the recognition it deserves!
Tits and dragons.
I don't think I have time to get lost in Skyrim for a fourth time too many games and not enough hours
Also really struggled with it in vr vomfest
@danlk1ng but it's not free if u want the new content.
@iamtylerdurden1 that's not entirely true. Some of it's free, it's only the "Anniversary Edition upgrade" that isn't free, and from what I gather it includes all/a lot of the mods that were previously in the creation club (not sure whether it's actually "all" or just a lot - I've read somewhere that it's around £100 worth of mods if you were to buy them with Creation Club points though)
The upgrade itself (to PS5 version with all existing DLC + fishing at least) is free though, it's up to individuals if they want all the other stuff
@danlk1ng It is all of the currently available Creation Club content, plus a bunch of new things.
@Stoffinator it's already true 4k (no rendering) on PS4 Pro so it better be 60 frames on PS5 haha
@nhSnork I think it's more meant to allow people to try to play more realistically, like survival mode.
It's kind of weird to me seeing Skyrim release on new platforms.
@KleebanKliban Lets hope so. Just odd they haven't said anything.
Everytime I think I've seen the last of Skyrim.. Bethesda outdoes themselves again and releases it on something else! What a wonder of modern technology!
I've never played Skyrim before, so this is the perfect time to jump in I guess.
