Skyrim Special Edition has been released on PC and consoles. But PC users are not happy with it, especially when they compare it with the original Skyrim, which was released about 5 years ago looking graphically much better with the implementation of free mods offered by modders. Skyrim Special Edition claims to be improved throughout the look, but this case is only for consoles.

The game has all-new features like remastered art and effects, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, volumetric god rays, and more.
Skyrim SE also brings PC mods to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Now console gamers can experience new quests, environments, characters, dialogue, armor, weapons and more.
On the Steam profile of Skyrim Special Edition, 39% of gamers give negative rating. If we talk about the positive comments, folks were appreciating it because it is a free upgrade for those who already have the game. Bethesda appears to have stopped the optimization process too. Players report encountering noteworthy drops in FPS, bugs and crashes. Skyrim Special Edition needs you to have an NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB or equivalent GPU to enjoy the game at the highest possible settings.
As expected, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are exempt from the problems. PC Gamer reported that up to this point, they haven’t run over real issues in FPS, yet that the game has bugs that were found in the original version of the game.
