On November 11, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be released. Again. This time, it's coming as the Anniversary Edition and anyone who owns Skyrim Special Edition is getting a free upgrade.
Along with Quake, super surprised it's coming to PS5 Maybe new things will be on Xbox / PC first in the future and then a long time down the line release on PS5 However, Bethesda have got to stop doing Skyrim and do a remake of Morrowind / Oblivion
I'm guessing this has been in the works for a while and they are just meeting contractual requirements. And Skywind and Skyblivion is already happening for sometime.
I don't think this is something that would have been in the works for long...it's Skyrim Deathloop is something that would be meeting contract requirements but this and Quake? I don't know, seems unlikely to me. They could have just pulled out and I don't think it's something Sony would have missed. "Skywind and Skyblivion is already happening for sometime" Rather have something official, released on consoles.
As far as I've heard, it's never been confirmed that Elder Scrolls 6 would "not" be coming to PS5. But maybe it has... I just haven't heard it. Whenever I've seen them get asked they never give a straight answer or they hint that some games might still come to Playstation consoles because of tradition.
Just to follow up my previous comment. If they have confirmed that Elder Scrolls 6 would not be coming to PS5. Don't take it the wrong way. I just never heard it. Maybe someone can tell me where I can read about it. Thanks.
I love the fact that Bethesda is making ES6 not for PS5, because Sony is good at grudges, and they'll make something way better. :-)
ES6 will be coming to PS5, the same time as PC and Xbox Series. Bookmark this comment for future referral.
Foxtrot rumor has it they had to improve a number of games graphically as part of the sell to Microsoft. If you see what’s going on lately that could make sense.
Yeah at this point a full Oblivion remake would probably come out before Skyblivion
Really? I haven't been following it very closely but last I heard development was nearing completion.
This is going to PS5 because it's a remaster/legacy title. They already said stuff like this would be multiplatform. It's the new stuff that will be exclusive to Microsoft platforms.
Starfield? that is it? what else?
Huh? No, not just Starfield. Every new game, not just new IP. A remaster is not a new game. I don't understand why this has to be repeated so constantly. The next Doom, Wolfenstein, Prey, Dishonored, TES, Fallout, Quake, etc. Those will be exclusive to Microsoft platforms.
I'm guessing that they are not exactly going to move consoles by re releasing a new edition of Skyrim but they will make some.decebt sales from it so a re release makes sense. But it could be a strategy to get ps5 players playing Skyrim again and hungry for a new elder scrolls so they buy a xsx or gaming PC to play 6
these were pre-buyout agreements of projects that were already underway. I don't think there's gonna be a ton of PS stuff from Bethesda after Starfield releases... save for a few things like this, fallout etc. MS spent a lot of money to have them.
They need a return on that investment, which won't come easy - and certainly not by removing the platform that makes up the majority of the console market from the equation.
Your just being hopeful. It doesn't cost much to put these games on current been so Microsoft stands to gain more by putting it on ps5.... A really old game. Moving forward be games are exclusive.
Fox It's ms man we never know what they will do. I fully expect them to release big games on playstation because it doesn't really hurt xbox. On Xbox you get the game on GP day one while on playstation it's $70 and will sell really well. So their service will do great and they will earn so much more with sales that they can reinvest into the studios End of the day it's a business and these executives aren't thinking like gamers. Ms would love to make money from GP and more from sales on other platforms. But maybe I am wrong and all the games will remain exclusive. If I am not wrong even Phil said it's game by game basis Or maybe release on XSX and keep it exclusive for a year than release on playstation that way they will make people either buy Xbox or sign up for GP on PC We will know more when starfield releases
Why do Sony player base still think any Bethesda game will be on PS5 again? Isn't this the whole idea that exclusive means only one system get this & not the other system? "So their service will do great and they will earn so much more with sales that they can reinvest into the studios" MLB the Show also shown that Sony made more sales when their game is on multi-platforms. In the same logic, won't Sony make more money if they put Spider Man, Horizon Forbidden West, GoT on to multi-platform?
People need to stop speculating that "most games will be xbox/pc only" when it is purely not the case. The only exception so far, out of the entire catalogue of games, is Starfield.
no, this is not correct. any old games prior to 2022 (prior to the acquisition or honoring existing contracts ie deathloop etc (possibly mmo's) could be released on sony platforms, anything after that (ie new games) will be xbox/pc/xcloud only (wherever gamepass exists). I don't know why there is still confusion on this.
Phil Spencer wants gamepass on every platform including playstation. I won't be surprised if Elders Scrolls 6 and somecotyer AAA games make it to PS5 down the line especially knowing Phil Spencer 😂 regardless I'll be playing all the Bethesda game's on PC
The PS5 version makes perfect sense because the game has been available there for a long time. The update is free only for SE owners, so many will still have to buy Skyrim again (which is already free in the Game Pass). (If you say Hellblade didn't get the update because the sequel isn't coming to PS5 and if you ask why Skyrim got the update because Skyrim was already released for PS4).
Skyrim Anniversary Edition is pretty much like the Special Edition but with new features like fishing, alongside over 500 pieces of Creation Club content.
I don't know, man. It says: "Skyrim Special Edition will get a free upgrade to the corresponding Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S or PS5 current-gen versions of the games". If it's 4K / 60, it already exceeds the capabilities of the PS4 Pro, but could easily run on PS5 (taking advantage of current gen systems). Most likely it's an remaster (res/fps boost) with additional content.
skyim 4k 60 is not beyond PS4 pro. However, its beyond bethesda's limits as a company.
I think it's safe to say everybody and their grandmother has a copy of TESV: Skyrim. I must've bought like three copies so far.
Never owned it and I have never even played it...
No you're lying. YOU'RE ALL LYING!!!
i dont. never have and probably never will
Never played it cause the combat system is boring
Imo they should support 8k resolution Im pretty sure PS5 and XSX could handle it
That would actually be hilarious.
an apple watch could handle it. its 10 freaking years old.
And the graphics weren't that extraordinary at the time of release. The game aged pretty bad.
There's not going to be a PS5 or XSX version, it's just backwards compatibility.
Yes there will. Devs even mentioned dualsense support on the PS blog post.
Easy money. I don’t know who is still buying Skyrim but someone is. How does gta5 stay in the top charts for 10 years? Who knows.
Update the VR to Special Edition level on PS5 and you got a deal. I'd pay for that.
Same. It's really the only point in this game at this stage. PSVR brought back the sense of wonder it had when it first released and a PSVR2 update (with those new controllers) all polished up would certainly get some attention.
same. Just re-installed skyrim on PC to try to relive it. its crappy and very dated. I enjoyed it back on the PS3 10 years ago though.
Same. I played the crap out of it on ps3 and can't see myself ever playing it again. I did get it on psvr a few years ago and after the first couple quests I turned it off and that was it. It was pretty damn good on VR, but I put thousands of hours into it years ago. Like what could I possibly do but just mess around?
cool think ill just pick Quake up
Feed'em slop and they'll eat it.
Stop Bethesda. Get help.
Phil is his only help and he only cares about gamepass and backwards compatability.
The gamepass version is broken still and yet they're spending time on yet another version....will that one be broken too?
Yes. The game has an unnoficial patch on pc for years and Bethesda never fixed like those 10k bugs on it that are already fixed by modders. All Bethesda games are like this.
Also can't get doom 3 to run at all. It's a disgrace and it's interesting that you typically hear nothing about it. Gamepass is great and all but anyone who says it's got all Bethesda titles is wrong. Skyrim legit doesn't work...it crashes constantly and because of micrsofts dumb way of creating the game files and such is nearly impossible to fix properly and easily. Doom 3 is the same issue. I don't even see it startup but others claim it starts up and immediately crashes to desktop. I have an SSD so maybe that's why I don't even see it happening. And I wouldn't be surprised if there are plenty more titles like these that just don't work on gamepass and it's gotten no comments from MS and no fix.
Guess who's NOT paying for this??
Because it'll be free for me. lol
..because you paid for either a service or the game already?
The majority of people as they already own the game? The only people paying for this, would be newcomers to the game outside of a certain subscription.
Yet I'm still waiting on Fallout 3 remastered 😭
skyrim eh? never heard of it lmao. if memory serves me right, I think someone even got skyrim running on a Samsung fridge.
This is good news! I have yet to play Skyrim for more than an hour, despite owning it for my X1X, Switch, and PS4 VR. It looked dated, and I had so much else to play. Going to give it a go on Series X! Also just downloaded Quake for Series X! Great time to have GP, and Xbox! Especially Series X!
it will look just as bad compared to current gen games. you think Bethesda will be bothered to upgrade the graphics that much?
Is the upgrade available for the Skyrim very special edition? How come nobody mentions this great port?
On the Playstation blog post it said it was backwards compatible on next gen but it's releasing for last gen. It won't have a next gen specific version.
color me surprised..
Did anyone expect it not to? If GTA V is being released on every platform then Skyrim is a sure bet. They’re both the most significant games released in the past ten years. In good and bad ways.
and you all joked about it.....
I don't understand it.. Why do they keep releasing Skyrim but they never bothered with remastering Fallout 3?! I have to go back to my PS3 just to play it but Skyrim is literally on everything. They're treating Fallout 3 like it's Fallout 76. I would die for Fallout 3 on my PS4 and Switch!
I honestly dislike this game to no end. Constant loading screens for everything, terrible combat, outdated graphics when it released, terribly outdated game engine they never bother rectifying to this day, massive bugs they never even bothered fixing and relied on the mod community for. I could go on and on.
Agreed , this game is very terrible in combat and has terrible outdated game engine
Why?? I mean 60 fps patch already works (with trophies and everything),.. I would much rather have a 60 fps Fallout official patch. ,.. Maybe if they make PSVR version on par with special edition one,.. Id be tempted,.. but doubt it.
It's rumored to also come to PS6 /s.
