The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition will give you a taste of Morrowind, the third entry in The Elder Scrolls series.
No, it won’t take you back to the province of Morrowind, though the existing Dragonborn DLC sees you exploring an island just off the coast. Instead, it’ll feature armour, weapons and more inspired by the game. The content is from the Creation Club, Bethesda’s programme which allows modders and add-on creators to get paid for their work.
We gleaned the above information from Bethesda’s recent “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition and Upgrade Overview Video”, er, video. We’ve talked about the Anniversary Edition before, released to commemorate the ten years that have passed since Skyrim, ten years in which we haven’t had a new single-player Elder Scrolls game, not that we’re bitter.
Essentially, here’s what’ll be happening this November 11th.
- If you own The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition (physically or digitally) on any platform you’ll will get four new pieces of free Creation Club DLC content. Sorry, the Nintendo Switch version is vanilla Skyrim and doesn’t count.
- If you own The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and have an Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5 you will get a next-gen upgrade.
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition, featuring all the Creation Club content and more, will be released. You can buy this outright or pay to upgrade from the Skyrim Special Edition.
The video does make the Creation Club, both the four pieces of free content and the 60+ pieces coming to the Anniversary Edition, look quite appealing. But given that you can also download a wealth of free add-ons, on both PC and console, will they really be worth the Anniversary Edition’s extra asking price?
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition is set to arrive this November 11th on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The next-gen upgrade, free to owners of the Special Edition, will be available the same day.
