The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim celebrates its 10th anniversary on November 11th with what else but a new version of the game. The Skyrim Anniversary Edition includes the base game with all expansions but also throws in plenty of Bethesda Creations as well. A new overview video from the company highlights Fishing, Survival Mode, and Saints and Seducers (a series of questlines).
Saints and Seducers is interesting because it adds new armor sets, weapons and a new storyline along with new foes. Rare Curios are also included in this which provide new ingredients for new potions, arrows and poisons. Survival Mode makes Skyrim a more realistic affair as players have to seek out campfires against the cold and manage their hunger. Fishing should be the most popular activity with players able to venture around the world and catch many kinds of fish.
These can be displayed on walls in the player’s home or in aquariums. New quests are also available tied to fishing. All previous Creation content is being included, along with new content like Ghosts of the Tribunal which offers a Morrowind-themed weapons and armor. The Cause sees the player battling the Mythic Dawn who are trying to create a new Oblivion gate.
The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Anniversary Edition will be available as a paid upgrade for Special Edition owners. A free update that provides enhancements for Xbox Series X/S and PS5 owners also goes live on the same day.
