The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
Bethesda’s latest video showcases the transformation possible from last-gen tech to current-gen visuals for the impending re-release.
An awful lot of players explored Skyrim when the game originally released back in 2011. As such, Bethesda needs to make a strong case for why it might be worth returning to the world of the Elder Scrolls for the new special edition. That seems to be the goal of the newest video showcasing the game.
The new video should feel familiar to any player who once wandered the lonely and snowcapped trails of Skyrim, but the added layer of lighting fidelity, texture detail, and other polish can’t help but impress, especially when accompanied by Jeremy Soule’s stirring and memorable theme.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition is headed toward launch on October 28 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The new version of the game includes all the game’s add-ons, plus all the new technical improvements on display in this new trailer.
