NEWS – Bethesda Announces ‘Skyrim: Special Edition’ Release Date, Details.

In what might just be the biggest news of the year to the gaming world, Bethesda Softworks has announced the official release date of ‘Skyrim: Special Edition’ – the fully next-gen remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Windows PC.

October 28, 2016 is the big day, and gamers all around the world, and of course all over the internet are buzzing about it and its many new improvements.

Most notably is the fact of just how much better, well, everything looks. The graphics and visuals are far superior to its previous incarnation, which was released for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows PC back in November of 2011 (11/11/11 to be exact).

The other big news is that Xbox One edition of the game WILL support mods, whereas the PS4 version WILL NOT. This has understandably caused quite the frenzy among both Xbox One and PS4 console gamers, for exactly the reasons you might think on both sides. Of course, mods are nothing new to PC gamers, who will of course have them yet again. Although causing quite the uproar, it is not exactly surprising considering that Xbox One consoles already have mods for Bethesda‘s OTHER big title, Fallout 4, whereas PS4 also does not. Whether this affects sales figures on either console remains to be seen.

So again, October 28, 2016 is the big day, dear readers, and the game is currently set to be priced at $59.99 anywhere video games are sold. So save that money up, save the date, and don’t forget to check with all your favorite retailers for some cool pre-order bonuses!!
