[E3] Skyrim Special Edition brings the adventure to current gen

Rejoice, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming to current gen with Skyrim Special Edition.

According to Bethesda, this remastered version of Skyrim will feature updated art and effects, detailed lighting, new textures and remastered environments and elements such as snow and water.

The remastered Skyrim will also bring mods to consoles. Players will be able to rate and favorite works created by the community.

This is good news for console fans, but PC gamers must be wondering what that means for those who have already invested completely in Skyrim. According to Bethesda, this means a free upgrade.

“If you own Skyrim and all its add-on or own Legendary Edition on Steam, you’ll get a free upgrade to Skyrim Special Edition on Oct 28,” Bethesda’s @BethesdaGameStudios account tweeted.

Skyrim Special Edition will be available for PS4, Xbox One and PC on Oct. 28.
