Among the many franchises that were birthed from Bethesda in the two decades that the team has been standing, there is no entry that breaks sound waves like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In that, the game since its release back in 2011 has went on to break into new boundaries as time continued forward. Not only did it enter the realm of next-generation machines with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, but also tapped into virtual reality with a native port too.

But as the meme continues to roll forward with users joking about the game shipping to all platforms at some point, it is a literal arrangement that Bethesda has orchestrated. However, this is to continue as long as ports continue to be profitable, says game director Todd Howard previously. “If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it,” Howard explained then.

During QuakeCon on Thursday, Bethesda announced that as part of celebrating the game turning ten years old – it will be releasing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, again. Announcing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition. You can watch the segment from the livestream in the video below:

“We’re also excited to announce the most definitive version of Skyrim to date: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition,” the team writes in the new blog post. “In addition to the three free Creation Club items mentioned above, this version contains the full game plus all three expansions and over 500 pieces of unique content from Creation Club, including pre-existing and new quests, dungeons, bosses, weapons, spells and more!”

Bethesda Game Studios adds that pre-existing owners of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition can expect to find the new ‘Anniversary Edition’ available to download when the game launches later this November at no additional cost.

Elsewhere during QuakeCon, id Software revealed that all three original Quake games are coming to Xbox Game Pass in some capacity: Quake, Quake II, and Quake Arenas. You can read the full report by heading here.
