Skyrim Remastered Edition

Thanks to a listing in the Australian Microsoft Xbox One store, we now know how big the download for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Remastered special edition is going to be. It turns out that even games that were relatively small on the previous version are logging in with some pretty impressive download sizes on the Xbox One and PS4.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim carried a size of just 4GB on the Xbox 360. The size of the remastered Special Edition is quite a bit larger and has a size of 22.75GB, as per the Australian Microsoft Store. In other words, when it comes to the Xbox One and the PS4, the title is about almost six times larger.

Just why this game is so much bigger can be partially explained by the extra content included that wasn’t in the original Skyrim. The remastered version has all of the game’s DLC. It should also be pointed out, that download size is still lower than quite a few recent games. The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Remastered Special Edition is due to launch for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC on October 28.
