Skyrim is still around to haunt the fans' wallets, more than a decade after the initial launch. Now you can know just how much damage it will do to your funds.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Anniversary Edition is releasing on November 11, 2021, less than a week from the time of publishing this article. Bethesda kept the pricing details secret until the last stretch before launch for some reason but we finally have the information that could help us decide whether we want to give Todd money for the same game for the seventh time. Or maybe tenth.
Anyway, Anniversary Edition will set you back $49.99/ €54.99/ £47.99 if you don't own Skyrim Special Edition. The pricing is a bit odd since European players would have to pay more even if the price in USD and EUR were the same but the latter is actually 10 per cent higher.
If you do have Special Edition, you will be able to update to the Anniversary edition at the price of $19.99/ €19.99/ £15.99. That's not too much, considering you will get around 500 mods and won't have to bother with arranging them in the right order or installing all of them separately. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that SKSE creators are worried about the impact of this update on their script extender that basically powers some of the best Skyrim mods to date.
In the case of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, owners will get a free update for these systems where the game is not shackled by lower performance and graphics that were obligatory due to weaker hardware.
