About The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

About this game

Developed and published by Bethesda.

Originally released in 2011, Bethesda Game Studios' opus won over 200 Game of the Year Awards and has since been ported to nearly every platform. 

The last of your kind

In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you are the last Dragonborn – a mythical hero destined to slay the ancient dragons and save the world from destruction. 

It's your own journey

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim allows you to live another life in another world. Create any character you can imagine by selecting from iconic races, such as Khajiit, Argonian, and Nord, among many others! 

Aside from being able to look however you want, you'll also be able to customise combat to your style. Whether you pick up a shield and a sword or join the fight as a mage,  Skyrim gives you plenty of choices and builds to choose from. Will you step away from being a stealth archer this time? Only time will tell.

Vast lands to explore

Skyrim is an expansive open-world game with endless possibilities. Visit cities like Windhelm and Falkreath, or venture off the beaten path to discover hidden caves and ruins. From the frigid tundra of the North to the sun-scorched lands of the South, explore all of Tamriel as you seek out new adventures!

Adventures await

Solve puzzles, retrieve forgotten treasures, or simply take in the stunning scenery. No two playthroughs will be the same!

Encounter new faces, join factions, and make important choices that shape your story. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an immersive and captivating game that will transport you to another realm. So what are you waiting for? Your adventure awaits!

Special Edition

With this special edition version of the game, you'll get new quests, environments, characters, dialogue, armour, weapons, and much more! After all, with mods, the sky is the limit. 

Steam Deck

The adventuring doesn’t stop within the game. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is playable on the Steam Deck, meaning you can take your console anywhere and explore being a Dragonborn there.

8 / 10
"If you’ve never experienced Skyrim, the Special Edition is certainly an adventure you can’t afford to miss."

"It’s showing its age and still suffers from the trademark Bethesda bugs, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition is a good enough excuse to warrant a return trip or...

"A wonderful recreation of Skyrim, which remains - despite rough edges and badly-aged elements - one of the greatest RPGs ever made."

Beautiful and Nostalgic Trip Through a Fantastic World

Beautiful remastered version of the game. Iconic soundtrack, story, and gameplay that everything else seems to use as a measuring stick. I played the game the night it released and had a hard time putting it down for years. Coming back to this world with graphics and enhancements the community has implemented has made this game stand the test of time and honestly is still pretty gorgeous even by today's standards.

This game has that almost undefinable “it”factor. It has that “one more turn” appeal. The combat is simple, which is great for people who aren’t the most dexterous. You can focus like a laser beam or wander around aimlessly. You can keep trying to find a way not to get killed by being creative. Most importantly, it it simply immersive like a great book. As an added plus, an incredible community of modders. At 60 years old, the first open world game I have ever loved.

Just the classic Skyrim experience packaged into the special edition. I decided to go with this edition due to the modding community's preference of it over the legendary or anniversary editions. If you don't want to manually download mods, Special Edition has access to the creator club so you can gets mods from within the game and not from 3rd party websites so it's even easier to mod of you don't know how. Overall playing has been a lot of fun, haven't played Skyrim in many years so it's definitely scratching that fantasy itch I've been having. Total score review: 8/10

My all time favorite game ever. Its not just an RPG, its the type of RPG where you can be anyone you want (to an extent obviously) rather that just the character they give you. This game has made me desperate for another game like this so i'm scared to see what Elder Scrolls 6 will be like... However DO NOT GET ANAVERSARY EDITION. I wrote another review on that... shocking.

I have always heard great things about Skyrim but had never had the opportunity to play. I grabbed it here for a great deal. It has been a ton of fun so far.

Seems like Bethesda found the right amount of simple mechanics/open world game action rpg here. Still without mods the game seems very simple and might be a little boring after a while. Also the quest design and gameplay mechanics is a little too power-fantasy like for an RPG game. Still mods keep the game alive, fixing bugs and expanding gameplay options even though the various version and patches following the game's 11 year old release should've worked on that more than they did.
