Come for the Fus-Ro-Da, stay for the god-rays. Here’s more of Skyrim Special Edition in action.
Skyrim Special Edition
When you see them both next to each other, the last-gen and current-gen versions of Skyrim almost look like two different games. And while that’s not the case, it’s sort of accurate in some ways.
In terms of the looks, the game has a laundry list of new additions. Expect to see “remastered art and effects, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, volumetric god rays, and more” all included. In and of itself, that’s plenty of new reason to play if you’re a Skyrim fanatic. There’s more though.
The Special Edition also has mod support. And that means that there’ll be a whole pile of new content sifting its way into Skyrim, thanks to PC mod builders. According to Bethesda, you’ll be seeing “new quests, environments, characters, dialogue, armor, weapons and more”. And while there were some issues with Fallout 4’s mod support on PS4, it seems as though gamers can look forward to that not being a problem with Skyrim. Cool stuff.
