The departure of the next-generation consoles has caused many video game companies to work on updating patches of many of their games so that they can take advantage of all the features that both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X and S offer. Games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order or Doom Eternal allow you to update your versions from the old generation to the new generation. Another game like GTA V is scheduled to release its updated version for next-generation consoles in November. Now it is the turn of Skyrim, a game that came out in 2011 and will be updated for these new consoles.
Almost ten years after it went on sale, Bethesda Softworks has announced new updates for one of its most legendary games: Skyrim . Next November 11 it will be just ten years since the game came out and it will be just that day when it receives an update for the next generation consoles. It will be totally free and will be available to all players who own Skyrim Special Edition.
Everything new about Skyrim
But not only that: Bethesda will add three free items of Creation Club content to the game for all Special Edition owners, including the ability to fish, survival mode or new missions.
The company will launch another edition of the game on November 11, which will be called “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition.” This version includes everything in the special edition, plus the three free items from the Creation Club content and more than 500 items of unique content from the Creation Club, including new missions or weapons , among other things.
The Anniversary Edition will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and PC.

In the event that you have the Special Edition or have the game available to play through the Xbox Game Pass, you can buy an update for the Anniversary Edition and thus have everything new that they have added, although it is still unknown at what price.
One of the best Bethesda games
When Skyrim is updated on November 11, the game will have gone through three different generations of consoles over the last decade. Skyrim was one of the company’s most successful games and they are making the most of it. They also released a version of Virtual Reality.
This announcement has been unexpected since what was known was that Bethesda was working on a video game called Starfield that is planned to arrive on our consoles next year.
On the other hand, it is also not known what happens with The Elder Scrolls VI, since it was announced three years ago at E3 in Los Angeles and they do not expect news of it for quite some time.
