Skyrim Anniversary Edition includes Morrowind- and Oblivion-inspired content

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition will give players access to new content inspired by previous entries in the franchise when it arrives on November 11. In a new video released on its YouTube channel, developer Bethesda Softworks announced that the game will arrive with all pieces of Creation Club content, including some content that bring the worlds of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion closer to Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition and Upgrade Overview Video

Along with its previously announced additions of fishing and a survival mode, Skyrim Anniversary Edition includes over 500 pieces of Creation Club content, plus Morrowind- and Oblivion-inspired quests. One piece of content, titled Ghosts of The Tribunal, gives players access to over a dozen new sets of armor from Morrowind.

Likewise, The Cause brings Oblivion‘s Mythic Dawn cult back into Skyrim, with the group trying to recreate an Oblivion gate in the snow-struck region. Players will fight against the new enemies introduced in this piece of content with new weapons and a conjurable Daedric horse companion.

Skyrim Special Edition owners looking forward to all of the new additions won’t have to pay a single cent for it, as long as they’re playing on console. Those who own the game on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S will be able to upgrade from Special Edition to Anniversary Edition at no charge, meaning PC players will have to purchase the new version of the game.

That may be for the best, though, since Skyrim Anniversary Edition will be breaking one of Skyrim modding‘s most important tools, Skyrim Script Extender. Without the script extender, a large number of Skyrim‘s game-changing mods on PC simply won’t work.

The best Skyrim mods
best skyrim mods jedi of mod

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is nothing short of legendary. It managed to win over 200 awards and sold more than 30 million copies from its initial release. This would only be amplified by not one but two re-releases, a 2016 launch that saw a cool 939,000 copies sold in the first week, in addition to the Nintendo Switch port that following year.

Emblematic as the experience may be, Bethesda's lore-riddled fantasy RPG wouldn't be one of the greatest open-world games without its dedicated modding community. From simple graphical touchups to complete out-of-universe transformations, Skyrim mods have evolved alongside the iconic title. Whether it's home to more immersive NPCs or becomes a nightmarish version of the Mushroom Kingdom, Tamriel can now practically become anything a player desires.

AMD will launch anniversary edition Radeon VII and 2700X to celebrate 50th year
amd anniversary edition radeon vii 2700x 29 50thanniversary02

Ahead of the launch of AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000 CPUs and Navi graphics cards, the company has another momentous event to celebrate: its 50th birthday. Like Intel in 2018 with its 40th, AMD isn't letting this anniversary pass without some special edition hardware. Its flagship graphics card and gamer CPU, the Radeon VII and Ryzen 2700X respectively, will be sold as anniversary editions with some physical changes, and potentially performance enhancements.

In 2018 Intel celebrated its 40th anniversary with a special CPU named after its very first, the Intel Core i7-8086K. It was in reality a specially binned 8700K that could boost to 5GHz, making it more of a collector's item than a truly new and enhanced component. Especially with the ninth-generation 9700K and 9900K just around the corner. AMD isn't offering hardware with nostalgic names, so it's more obvious what you're getting for your money -- or at least it should be when we learn more about them.
