Skyrim Anniversary Edition is the mother of all bundles
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim first released in November 2011 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The game’s three DLC expansions – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn – were released separately between 2012 and 2013. And over the years, the critically acclaimed game has seen many re-releases.
In 2016, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition was released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It featured all three expansions and a graphics upgrade. In 2017, a VR-only version of the game was released for PS4 and in 2018 for Windows. In 2017, the game arrived on Nintendo Switch.
It has become a common joke that every time a new console is launched, Skyrim will come there. It’s the game that refuses to die.
And of course, 10 years after Skyrim released, Bethesda is set to release The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition. It’s set to release on November 11, 2021 – the true anniversary of the game’s 10th anniversary – for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, PS4, and PS5.
This Anniversary edition really just a bundle that includes the full game and all three expansions with all of the upgrades found in the Special Edition, plus over 500 unique Creation Club content pieces. This includes quests, dungeons, bosses, weapons, spells, and more.
Another reissue of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim It might seem unnecessary, but when you think about his age, ten, it’s quite possible that many players today have never played it. Someone who is, say, 15 years old today, was only five years old when the game originally launched. They are about to reach a whole new generation of gamers. And to be fair, the game has held up incredibly well over the years. It remains one of the best open world RPGs available.
We know The Elder Scrolls IV is in development, but it’s years away. This Anniversary edition could be an effective way to introduce the franchise to a new audience and build momentum for the next game in the franchise.
