Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition for Xbox One to support PC mods

We know Bethesda is moving to bring Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, to the Xbox One. This is a special edition and not a remaster, so fans should not go out expecting a ton of changes outside of slight improvements in graphics.

Bethesda hasn’t yet gone into details when it comes down to what fans should expect from the game. What we do know, the whole package will include the game and all its add-ons, along with remastered effects and arts.

What’s interesting about this version of the game, is the fact that fans on Xbox One will get the chance to try out the mods for the first time. This will be the first time mods for the Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim will be available for consoles. In our minds, this is paving the way for the future.

Pete Hines from Bethesda has confirmed that more information is being withheld at the moment.

“We haven’t gotten into the full, ‘Here’s all the things we’re doing.’ But the basic idea is, in all the ways possible we’re trying to improve it and make it as next-gen and appropriate for these consoles as possible,” he told IGN. “Performance, effects, or whatever we can do to make the game look and feel better, we’re going to give it a go.”

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim during its time, went on to grab over 200 video game awards. It is deemed as one of the greatest games of our era, but we have a different view on things.

We saw Skyrim as a bug filled mess of a game with dated combat. It’s a fun game if you’re looking for exploration and a beautiful open world with plenty to see. However, if you’re out seeking a solid melee combat and a strong story to boot, Skyrim may not be the video game for you.

Bethesda is not just planning to delivering to gamers the special edition Elder Scrolls 5, but also a new Prey title that was shown off at E3 2016, along with Quake Championship set for this year.
