Skyrim is a single player game. You're probably looking for the Elder Scrolls Online thread.

Elder Scrolls Online is on sale for $15, not Skyrim for the PS4. Different game.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

Hello

Two of us saw where this is up in the PS Store for $20.00 during Black Friday week. I frankly know hardly much about the game but have played the Elder Scrolls Online quite a bit....two characters at 70 and one about half-way. But I was hoping for a bit more "co-op & group" play with it so now I'm playing Neverwinter. But it's no-where near the visual aspect of ESO but probably far more in depth with gear and optional add-ons

I understand this is all single player but are there companions AI that tags along on quests? In ESO there's good deal of various crafting and is it the same with Skyrim...metal, food, clothing, etc. And I believe I saw in earlier posts that 100 hours is not unusual right?

I need another game like I need another monthly bill and plus just got Horizon: Zero Dawn. I also saw where The Witcher: Wild Hunt is same price as Skyrim V not to mention Dragon Age: Inquisition GotY Edition (at $10.00) which sort of intrigued me as well. But I've always liked that sort of Knights, Vikings and Wizards Mythical setting

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

The Witcher is easily the best of those, the initial game is huge, and the added DLC is more than generous - it's a lot of great game there, go for that!

Though being a bit familiar with Witcher lore, or at least having played Witcher 2 helps, but it's not necessary.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

Anyone else interested in the Anniversary Edition dropping on Thursday? I wasn't at first since I thought the $20 upgrade only offered new weapons and armor but apparently there's a ton of quests associated with them. Survival mode and Fishing sound awesome as well.

This will be my 4th time Purchasing Skyim so I guess I'm a sucker

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

I'm thinking about it though I'd like to get back into ESO which I've taken a break from for several months....I just hate that monthly fee to get the extra stash space which is almost needed...it's going to be loaded for sure ..

This release may suck me back in. I haven't played the game since it's initial launch. Just wish it wasn't quite so expensive after so many other re-releases of it over the years.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

I bought the Special Edition about a year ago when it was on sale and started replaying it about 2 weeks before the Anniversary Edition was announced.
Hadn't played it since getting it for the 360 (and not finishing it). I'll probably get the AE upgrade - assuming it doesn't kill my saves. I don't care about fishing (fishing and escort missions are two of my most hated gaming actvities) but I'm open to the other content.
I'm a good chunk into the game, but still a lot of game left, so I'd be fine with upgrading for the remainder of it.

Not finished Witcher 3 either, I was waiting for the S/X Upgrade to restart that but who knows when that'll come.

Skyrim Anniversary Edition launches for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC tomorrow, November 11. It will cost $49.99, while those who already own Skyrim Special Edition can upgrade to the Anniversary release for $19.99.

I don't see anything on the Xbox store about it either; but at least there is an upgrade option, instead of buying the game again for too many times.

Yeah I thought that was weird. I wonder if this is just due to it being an update to an existing game? I hope it becomes available at midnight.

Skyrim has surpassed meme and is now in troll mode. I can't believe this game is STILL selling.

Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim -- November 2011

Anyone picked it up (or upgraded) yet? Anything noticeable to look for?
Because the SE is on Gamepass, GP members can get the AE upgrade for 17.99.

Apparently fishing is really easy but still somewhat absorbing and relaxing.
And for those of you who waited, now you can get

I've been replaying this via the PS5 edition. It runs great and the file is super small now. I did not buy the anniversary edition stuff but may do that later on. None of my PS4 stuff ported over, so I started from scratch. The loading times are non-existent, too.

I played Skyrim a year or two ago with whatever complete PS4 edition was available at the time. Good game, but I can't imagine going back through it all again. I think it took me close to a year to complete.

There was a big update for the PS4 recently - wonder what it could've been after all this time.

I have been debating getting this game since I bought a PS4 during the pandemic. I played it, well, 10 years back, when I had an Xbox 360. I remember being single that year
