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."

I already had this game on my PS3 and Xbox game pass. I bought it again for Steam so that I could fully use the modding system available, and I was not disappointed. The range of what you can do is insane, and it's one of the best games to mod, barring maybe Minecraft.

A very great game. Although it was released 10yrs ago, its replayability is greatly enriched by its thousands of mods made by its awesome community. 10/10 would recommend to other gamers
