The rumors are true, Skyrim is getting a makeover. Bethesda's massive, epic-scale role-playing game is getting a Special Edition for the current gen, announced at Bethesda's press conference at E3 2016.

Visual upgrades were showcased, comparing last-gen consoles to how things look on current-gen consoles (PlayStation 4, Xbox One) with the Special Edition – it's an impressive shift. Special Edition will include mod support. 

Screen space reflections, snow, water shaders, and a slew of other eye-candy upgrades were also on display. It'll be out on October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
