The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim officially turns 10 in November (it actually feels like it’s been with us longer), and Bethesda is celebrating it with a new Anniversary Edition and next-generation PS5 and Xbox Series X / S upgrades. The main selling point of the anniversary edition is that it will include all Creation Club add-ons released to date (Creation Club content is considered official by Bethesda but has been developed in collaboration with third parties and modders). There will even be some new Creation Club content, including fishing mechanics and a range of tasks and equipment. You can watch the first overview trailer for Skyrim Anniversary Edition below.
Here’s a little more detail about some of the new content being launched with Anniversary Edition …
- Fishing – Skyrim’s brand new fishing mode allows you to angle over 20 unique aquatic species across the area’s many water bodies. Prepare your catch for a meal, display it as a trophy in your cave or even store it in your own home aquarium – the choice is yours! With many of Skyrim’s fishing spots located in the region’s most breathtaking and tranquil places, there’s nothing like relaxing on the shores while tackling (pun intended) questlines in this upcoming free creation.
- The ghosts of the court – Players will have the opportunity to earn over a dozen new weapons and armor, previously shown in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
- The reason – This quest gets players to meet Mythic Dawn, which aims to form a new Oblivion gate and offers brand new enemies, locations and weapons – not to mention an enchanting Daedric horse!
Those who already own the Skyrim Special Edition can upgrade to the Anniversary Edition, but the price of the upgrade is not yet known. That said, Bethesda will offer all four free creations, whether you’re upgrading to Anniversary Edition – Fishing, Survival Mode, Saints & Seducers Story, and the Rare Curios Equipment Pack.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition launches on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS4 and PS5 on November 11th. A Skyrim 10th Anniversary concert will livestream the same day.
