The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition is an open-world RPG set in the fantasy world of Tamriel. Players customise their characters from a variety of races and set out for a non-linear adventure with an all new graphical upgrade.
Following its release in 2011, Skyrim became one of the most popular and critically received RPGs of all time. After a brief introduction section the game offers a huge world filled with side-quests, items and NPCs to interact with across a game spanning hundreds of hours. Combat styles are entirely decided by player choice from sneaky assassins to heavily armoured warriors. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition was released in 2016 on the newest console generation and PC including all three DLCs and a new graphical update with redesigned light effects, water styles and more. While the base game remains the same, this version offers a new standard and base to build from for the modding community.
Fans of the series will probably already have gone through a number of Skyrim playthroughs. The updated graphics of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition are a real improvement but will be mostly enjoyed by those who missed the game first time around.
