During the E3 2016 press conference, Bethesda Softworks announced Skyrim Special Edition, a remastered edition of its famous RPG ever, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, making its way to PCs, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released back in 2011 and to date, it is still one of the most popular and finest game ever produced by Bethesda. The game still enjoys a huge fan base and the RPG lovers and now the studio is trying to bring the remastered version of the game in all its glory to the current generation consoles, i.e, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
As per Bethesda’s head Pete Hines, the new Skyrim Remaster will be “as next-gen as possible”. The remastered edition will bring mods support on the consoles, which is already available on the PCs. It will bring quite a number of graphical upgrades and the developers are trying to do whatever they can to add better game performance, effect and almost everything.
During the recent interview with IGN, Pete Hines said that;
“We haven’t gotten into the full, ‘Here’s all the things we’re doing.’ But the basic idea is, in all the ways possible we’re trying to improve it and make it as next-gen and appropriate for these consoles as possible. Performance, effects, or whatever we can do to make the game look and feel better, we’re going to give it a go.”
The Skyrim Special Edition is set to release later this year on October 28th for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The remaster edition will be free for those PC gamers who already own the original game. Stay tuned for more!
