The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Editions’ New Additions
As previously mentioned, the Anniversary Edition will include a handful of new Creations for players to experience which add new questlines, weapons, armor, items, and so much more. Those who own Skyrim’s Special Edition version can unlock these and all the other benefits at a currently unknown additional cost.
Saints and Seducers (Also Included for Special Edition Owners)
Have you played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim?
Saints and Seducers will include the largest amount of content that’s ever been included in a single Creation. It consists of a new storyline, new armor sets and expansion, artifacts, enemies, and more.
Rare Curious (Also Included for Special Edition Owners)
This Creation will see Khajit caravans arrive in towns and the surrounding areas that are carrying “rare imports from the far reaches of Tamriel.” These ingredients will let players craft new potions, arrows, and poisons. There will even be rare stones crafted by the Ayleids to be obtained like the Flawed Varla Stone and Welkynd Stone.
Survival Mode (Also Included for Special Edition Owners)
For those looking for a bit more of a challenge, Skyrim’s Survival Mode Creation is an “immersive challenge” that will test players by forcing them to keep warm in the cold, keep their bellies full, and be careful not to succumb to exhaustion. Players will need to forge, catch, cook, and scavenge to survive.
Fishing (Also Included for Special Edition Owners)
Fishing will now be part of Skyrim and over 20 unique aquatic species are just waiting to be caught. Once caught, these fish can be cooked, displayed as trophies, or used as pets in an aquarium. There will also be fishing-related quests to undertake and these fishing spots will take you to some of the most beautiful places on the map.
Ghosts of the Tribunal
The Ghosts of the Tribunal Creation will let players earn over a dozen weapons and armor pieces featured in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
In The Cause, players will have to deal with the Mythic Dawn, a group that is trying to form a new Oblivion Gate. This new content will also feature new enemies, locations, weapons, and even a conjurable Daedric Horse.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Next-Gen Upgrades and Concert
Bethesda will be detailing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s next-gen upgrades in the near future, but it was previously revealed that there will be a free next-gen upgrade for those who are playing on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S. There will also be an upgrade path for those who wish to make the jump to the Anniversary Edition.
On November 11 at 11am PT/2pm ET/6pm GMT, fans will also be treated to the Skyrim 10th Anniversary Concert, which will feature music from the game performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and London Voices.
