The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition Gets A Gameplay Trailer, PC Specs And Unlock Time Announced


Skyrim Special Edition is coming this 27 October. While it is touted mostly for The PS4 and Xbox One, the game will also be available on PC, free for previous owners of the game. Special Edition is mostly a remastered version with enhanced graphics, with the same Skyrim experience staying mostly intact.

It looks pretty decent for a current gen console remaster based on the trailer below, but is it even prettier as the original Skyrim with tons of mods tacked on? We let you judge for yourselves with this.

For PC players, here’s the PC system requirements. Note that it bumps a few of these specs due to the added graphical effects the Special Edition provides:


  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
  • Intel i5-750/AMD Phenom II X4-945.
  • 8GB of ram.
  • 12 GB free HDD space
  • NVIDIA GTX 470 1GB /AMD HD 7870 2GB


  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
  • Intel i5-2400/AMD FX-8320.
  • 8GB of ram.
  • 12 GB free HDD space
  • NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB /AMD R9 290 4GB

Skyrim Special Edition will be available on the 28th October, and PC players in Southeast Asia will be able to unlock the game as early as 8am +8 GMT. Get your Dovahkiin iron helmet ready by then for another round of adventure in the world of Skyrim, and cross your fingers that the console editions will not be as disastrous as its previous generation counterparts.

Note: To be eligible for the free copy of Skyrim Special Edition, you need to own the base game as well as all its DLCs: Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn.
