Nevertheless, the upgrade to the Anniversary Edition of the game will be paid, which includes items from the free update plus 500 other Creation Club content.
Original news: Celebrating the 10 years Since the original release of the title, Bethesda just announced Skyrim Anniversary Edition for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S. The game will have improvements (not yet specified) in the next generation consoles, and the owners of the Special Edition will not have to pay for this reissue of the famous Bethesda RPG, as they will be eligible for a free update on PS5 and X / S Series.
This new edition will arrive on November 11.The announcement happened in full QuakeCon, where we also had news of the famous Quake saga. There was no trailer during the presentation, so there are not many details revealed about this anniversary edition yet. One thing we do know is that finally we can fish in this RPG, a mechanic highly suggested by the community for several years.
As an obvious detail, but never unnecessary to mention, this edition of Skyrim will feature all content previously released, since its original release in 2011. Although Bethesda is already part of the Xbox family, it is good to know that this title will still be able to be enjoyed by players on PC and PlayStation. A version for Nintendo Switch has yet to be confirmed.
With The Elder Scrolls VI still far from showing signs of life, we can enjoy Skyrim once again, with its well-deserved improvements for the new generation of consoles. The game will come to all the platforms mentioned, the next November 11th, exactly its original release date in 2011.
