Skyrim is back. Bethesda revealed that it is releasing The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim for next-gen consoles, it is coming with it many enhancements.
Perhaps the most important piece of news is that this version will be available for PlayStation 5. In the wake of Bethesda’s acquisition by Xbox, the availability of games like The Elder Scrolls on Sony’s platforms has been an ongoing concern. In this instance, at least, PlayStation fans are being included.
The Anniversary Edition will include 10 years’ worth of content plus some new features. One new feature? A free fishing mechanic. Plus, if you own Skyrim Special Edition, there is an upgrade path to the Anniversary Edition, though it won’t be free.
For people who just want to play Skyrim on next-gen consoles, a free next-gen upgrade will be coming to all players.
It was released in 2011, Skyrim has since received numerous re-releases. It was most recently remastered for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016 when Skyrim celebrated its fifth anniversary.
