Last week, we reported about a remastered Skyrim version that was expected to be announced at E3, and now it’s confirmed. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition revives the original game with enhanced graphics with dynamic depth of field, volumetric lighting, screen-space reflections, new snow and water shaders, and revamped art and textures.

This is not the only Elder Scrolls surprise Bethesda prepared for fans: The Dark Brotherhood DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online is finally available for the Xbox One as well.

Gamers who bought The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim complete with all DLC packs on PC will get the Special Edition for free. Those who purchased the game for their consoles are not so lucky.

The game developer also released a series of impressive in-game images that seem almost real.

Bethesda hasn’t revealed much information about it upcoming Skyrim Special Edition, but we also expect to see some game action changes. The game developer hasn’t mentioned anything about the characters faces, but it’s extremely likely that the team has also improved this element often criticized by players.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition will land on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC on October 28. The game is expected to have a price tag of $60. However, many players actually wonder whether the improved visuals are worth the price. They say they would accept to pay half the price but not the full retail price, which means that Bethesda may be surprised on release.

Speaking of Skyrim, one of the most common errors players may experience is the annoying black screen issue. If you ever experience this bug, check out our fix article to see what you can do to solve it.
