To celebrate its 10th anniversary, a next-generation version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is in the making and will be released on November 11th. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition – as the name implies – serves as another re-release of the popular 2011 game, this time for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. It’s important to note, however, that Anniversary edition will also launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
This news comes from Quakecon’s official live stream Bethesda Twitch account. As was communicated to us by Nibellion on Twitter, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition will provide the next generation upgrade for free and will also include new features.

NS Anniversary edition will cover more than 500 Creative Club elements created by the community and will introduce fishing, which is not available in any other version of the game. It will also contain all previously released DLC expansions including Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn. Presumably, the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions will offer enhanced visuals, though this has yet to be confirmed by Bethesda.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim first launched for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2011 and has been re-released several times. Since then, it’s been available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and even a PS VR version. After launching this fall, it will be one of the most re-released games ever, with Total 12 debuts throughout its life cycle.
Bethesda is currently working on a track, appropriately titled The Elder Scrolls VI, though it may take some time before it’s released. Meanwhile, players have no shortage of ways to experience Skyrim.
