Skyrim Remastered: Bethesda Defends $60 Price Tag, Pre-Load, And Language Support Detailed

Complaining about having to pay $60 for a remaster this extensive seems very odd to me.

Overpricing older games reissued as remasters or re-releases is an unfortunately common occurrence and trend in the gaming industry- but the one time that I do not think that criticism applies at all is with the upcoming The Elder Scrolls Skyrim: Special Edition, the remaster for Bethesda’s 2011 classic hit.

The remaster of Skyrim is very extensive, includes all the DLC ever released for the game (also remastered), and it introduces mod support for consoles too- in other words, this is the rare remaster that can get away with being full priced. So it’s good to see Bethesda defend the game against people decrying the price online. Bethesda’s Pete Hines took to his Twitter to point out just how extensively the game has been overhauled from the original.

Hines also shared some information on the languages the game will be supporting (the same as the original Skyrim), as well as information on pre-loads for digital pre-orders (should be available in the coming weeks). The Elder Scrolls Skyrim: Special Edition is due out later this year on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
