They’re being extremely vague about the next gen update. I’m suspicious.

ID: hjfd8ex

Yeah for real. Is it 4K 60 fps? Or 1080? Idk

ID: hjgle31

I would be very surprised if it isn’t 4k 60fps, I feel like that’s a given.

ID: hjffcsg

Well I mean the PS4 Pro version was native 4K at 30 and you could do that little trick to make it 60 so of course this will be 4K/60.

ID: hjji76r

Skyrim came out on the PS3. If they can't get it to 4k60fps after a decade of re-releases that'd be pretty fucking pathetic lmao.

ID: hjfln1o

It has enhanced graphics!!! /s

ID: hjgq3o4

They were vague about Fallout 76 and we know how that turned out.

ID: hjhjltk

They probably won't even fix the bugs

So last gen get a physical edition, but not current gen? We can only upgrade the special edition? Either I’m being stupid or this post is worded weirdly

ID: hjft8do

The PS4 only Has the special edition as far as ik

Possibly the last Elder Scrolls release a Playstation wil ever see. Goddamn it, man.

ID: hjjzfn9

That's why I just buy all consoles.

ID: hji2myy

We’re definitely not getting Elder Scrolls 6, but I could see them doing Skyrim on PS6 just because

ID: hjhpdjz

I was going to say and also the first but forgot oblivion came to PS3.

Skyrim is my most played game of all time but I kinda wished Bethesda did a upgrade to fallout 3 or NV. I’m kinda over Skyrim and just wanted the next elder scrolls already. Oh well, Avowed looks fun so it hopefully that be a good placeholder in the meantime

ID: hjfl9fv

Fallout 3 needs an update massively. I went to play that a week ago and it looks… bad.

ID: hjg2qzr

I mean it didn’t even look that great when it came out lol and Fallout 3 is in my top 3 favorite games ever

ID: hjg27wx

Tried tale of two wastelands? Should put it pretty much on the same level as NV

ID: hjhgsak

I’m kinda over Skyrim and just wanted the next elder scrolls already.

Play ESO, it's great! I'm also patiently waiting for TES6, I'll let them take their time as long as they need to make it epic but they better not screw it up like Fallout 76.

ID: hjkagk0

there is no fucking upgrade, it’s just a bullshit tactic meant to fool idiots into buying in on their mt store horse shit.

6 : Anonymous2021/11/05 15:15 ID: hjfa9e5

Still no word on what the next gen update is? I was hoping for some type of raytracing

7 : Anonymous2021/11/05 16:09 ID: hjfii6h

Hmmm... It's been a couple years since I bought a version of this game, downloaded it, made several false starts, finally make a character I'm happy with, and then quit 5 hours in because it's just not my type of game. Looking forward to doing it again!

ID: hjgrhxq

Played this game ten years ago when it came out. It was fun. The game play is nowhere near fun enough to play through again and I already know the story. Tried to download some mods, but got board and didn't want to invest 60 hours getting my character back up to snuff.

It would be neat if they found some way of making a game with similar but better gameplay, maybe with a story that was in the same world but a different time or place. Like some sort of different game that came before or after this game. Maybe its impossible though, maybe all there is is skyrim. Maybe the universe is just one big fractal that is skyrim at every level. We're all NPCs in a universe skryrim mod making and playing and reskyriming elder skyrim v: skyrim, skyrimist edition for the skyrim console.

How many arrows to the knee must we take before we can be free?

ID: hjhw994

R u ok bro

I think my problem with skyrim is I go overboard with the mods and it ruins the experience. I'll do that armory mod and get a bunch of cheat gear and accessories where I'm basically playing God mode.

It's fun for a bit, but after playing this game for like 10 years, it only holds its appeal for a few hours.

Might get this game and play with no mods and try to relive the original experience as much as possible

I hope they take advantage of the SSD, no load screens would be a game changer for Skyrim

ID: hjkbc1q

no it wouldn’t. it takes literally 2 seconds to load on my ps5 now.

ID: hjfaev6

I’m assuming ‘enhanced graphics’ basically means 4k 60fps officially. Hoping there is more , but Beth have been exceedingly vague about this one.

ID: hjfmkou

I’m really hoping for some impressive graphics upgrades because tbh I really love the lighting the special edition got. As in really really love it, I think it looks amazing with the light rays coming over embankments. But the idea of basically instant loading times is fun. I definitely won’t miss the half a minute load every time you enter a dungeon

ID: hjkb2r4

There won’t be shit. this is just a scam using the illusion of nostalgia and celebration to make money off their bullshit MT store one last time. Don’t fall for it.

ID: hjfa87y

Could have sworn I'd read that the upgrade was free if you already owned the Special Edition.

ID: hjfacd4

The next gen upgrade is free

11 : Anonymous2021/11/05 19:27 ID: hjgdjtt

I'm still no clearer on this upgrade.

ID: hjgrwbm

Its like skyrim, but you have to pay more again.

12 : Anonymous2021/11/05 17:47 ID: hjfxqwx

Have they mentioned if saves will transfer from ps4 to ps5 version?

ID: hjg2d5z

Haven’t seen anything on save transfers yet. The fact that they mention that trophies won’t pop between PS4 and PS5 indicates to me of some kind of save transfer.

ID: hjjig1x

If I can't transfer my saves from the PS3 version I ain't buying it

13 : Anonymous2021/11/06 11:05 ID: hjjc4ym

Whatever "enhanced graphics" Bethesda implemented for the ps5 update, it can't be too impressive or they would have shown video demo by now.

14 : Anonymous2021/11/05 19:11 ID: hjgb39b

Todd Howard must be laughing and rubbing his hands together while sitting in a chair in the dark in front of his massive fireplace. “How many copies will these idiots buy again?! Muhahaha”

ID: hjhdcdg

Goddammit Todd...

ID: hjge6ed

I’ve bought Skyrim 3 times. To be fair, however, I’ve probably clocked north of 2,000 hours since launch (some of it even past the character creator). So I reckon I’ve come out pretty well on the price per hour.

15 : Anonymous2021/11/05 18:27 ID: hjg42lh

kinda wish SKYRIM VR gets ps5 enhanced update lol

16 : Anonymous2021/11/05 17:17 ID: hjft31h

20 bucks for the paid upgrade alright not that bad since you get all the creation stuff. And we still get a free update even if we don't pay so eh not bad

17 : Anonymous2021/11/05 19:34 ID: hjger05

Is it getting a sound update? There was an article at the bottom about making Skyrim's sound more immersive.

Either way... I'm excited. I can't lie, I'm pretty excited for this.

18 : Anonymous2021/11/05 23:15 ID: hjhcx4r

When does it pop up on the PS Store? Comes out in a couple days and it still hasn't appeared anywhere.

19 : Anonymous2021/11/06 07:50 ID: hjixca2

So can we transfer the ps4 save file to the ps5 if im just playin the special edition?

20 : Anonymous2021/11/06 12:45 ID: hjjln3a

So just to clarify, if i own ps4 disc version of skyrim special edition and upgrade for £15.99 to anniversary will that upgrade to the ps5 edition if i play on ps5 or do i need to outright buy the anniversary edition?

I hate that i have to ask as stupid a question as this Bethesda

ID: hjkekl9

its a free upgrade.

21 : Anonymous2021/11/06 17:27 ID: hjknjb8

What would be an impressive next gen upgrade is to remove all loading screens and make it all seamless, like some mods on the PC version can do.
