It’s become something of a meme that Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is now available on every platform and everywhere under the sun, but in fact, the game continues to grow.
The Anniversary Edition of Bethesda’s immeasurably popular RPG launched today, October 6, on the Epic Games Store. The Skyrim Anniversary Edition itself costs $50, while the upgrade for existing owners is $20.
The Anniversary Edition comes with the base game, all three expansions (Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn), and a variety of creation club content. It also includes some new gameplay elements, such as fishing.

The release of Skyrim Anniversary Edition on the Epic Games Store came shortly after the RPG was released on another platform, Switch. However, reports say that the Switch version leaves a lot to be desired.
Game director Todd Howard said in 2018 that Bethesda continues to release new versions of Skyrim, and on additional platforms, because the game makes money. “If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it,” joked Howard.
Bethesda Game Studios’ next title is Starfield, which was originally expected to release in November 2022 before being pushed back to 2023. After that will come The Elder Scrolls VI and then Fallout 5.
