Bethesda Quietly Increases The Price Of 'Skyrim' Ahead Of Tenth Anniversary

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim celebrates its tenth anniversary in November, and Bethesda has decided to mark the occasion by re-releasing the classic RPG. Again.

"For fans looking to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Skyrim - or newcomers ready to take their first step into Tamriel's northern landscape - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition releases November 11, 2021," Bethesda confirmed last month.

This new edition of the RPG contains all of the DLC and improvements that were present in the last re-release, Skyrim Special Edition. But Skyrim Anniversary Edition will also come with over "500 unique pieces of Creation Club content, including quests, dungeons, bosses, weapons, spells and more". Oh, and a new fishing minigame. Because why not?

Skyrim Anniversary Edition will be a free upgrade for anyone who already owns Special Edition. Unfortunately, if you don't already own Special Edition and were hoping to pick it up for slightly cheaper ahead of the free upgrade... Bethesda sees you, and has planned for you.

As spotted by TheGamer, Bethesda has quietly bumped up the price of Skyrim Special Edition on Steam in various regions. Here in the UK, the price has gone from £29.99 to £34.99 which is... quite an increase. The publisher also did the exact same thing with Skyrim Legendary Edition ahead of the release of Special Edition, proving that it really has very little shame when it comes to squeezing every last penny from its 2011 RPG.

The good news is that if you already own Skyrim Special Edition, you're set for a free upgrade on November 11. If you don't? Bethesda is about to shake you down over a ten-year-old adventure. To be fair, that's what you get for being one of the two people left in the world who doesn't own the game already.
