Bethesda have finally announced the pricing for the Anniversary Edition of Skyrim.

The standalone version of Skyrim Anniversary Edition will cost: USD $49.99/EUR €54.99/GBP £47.99/AUD $79.95/RUB 3399.

The upgrade from Skyrim Special Edition to Anniversary Edition will cost: USD $19.99/EUR €19.99/GBP £15.99/AUD $29.95/RUB 1429.

Physical copies of the Anniversary Edition are only confirmed for PS4/XBO, but these versions upgrade to next-gen for free.

Improvements for next-gen systems have still not been detailed, all we have is this: "Owners of Skyrim Special Edition or the Anniversary Edition on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S will receive a next-generation upgrade for the game. The upgrade will be free and optimize the game with enhanced graphics, faster loading times and more."

All I can say is here in the UK we are getting shafted on that standalone price, $50 = £48? Lol. If it had the same conversion rate as the $20/£16 upgrade it should be $50/£40.

Yeah, we always get shafted in the UK, just look at Sony's PS5 game pricing... $70 = £70 all of a sudden? Also if it was a tenner to upgrade it wouldn't be too bad, but I doubt there's gonna' be enough to entice me into paying £16 for this upgrade. And I think we all know their "enhanced graphics" will literally just be a resolution boost, fuck that lol.

The problem with that is Series X already runs the XBO version at 4k60... and last-gen PS4 Pro and XBO X both ran at 4k30, so there's really no where to go in terms of just resolution.

But yeah I've seen zero evidence of better graphics from what they've shown thus far, and if they've only shown last-gen footage then why? It's just days from release and we've had zero details about next-gen enhancements beyond it'll look better and load faster.

If they give it a decent visual upgrade and add dualsense support, I might be interested. Might.



£16 for me as I'll be upgrading the GP version. Pretty excited to jump back into Skyrim, it's been a few years.

You can go 8K60 :p (ps5 doesn't support the output though, downsamples to 4K)
Series X can do 4K 120fps.

Faster loading, longer draw distance, 4K 120fps mode, next-gen upgrade done.



Great, this is my last Skyrim so better to play it while I can :p



what's going on with the UK prices? cheese... It's seems eerily high. I understand it's Skyrim but still...



$50 = 55€? We're also getting shafted.

Yep, even accounting for the USA price not including tax while the UK does (and pretty sure EU does?).

With taxes and conversions works out at about this:

USA - ~$53.50 (varies by state)

EU - $64

UK - $65
