Skyrim Anniversary Edition has finally revealed the price and upgrade options that will be available to prospective customers. Even though the newest iteration of one of the most popular role-playing games of all-time is slated to launch in just one week, Bethesda had until today remained absolutely quiet about the title's actual cost. Fortunately, the publisher won't be asking players to break the bank to buy this new version of Skyrim, especially if they already own previous iterations.
Broken down on the official Elder Scrolls website today, it was revealed that Skyrim Anniversary Edition will boast a baseline price of $49.99 across all platforms. This means that if you haven't purchased the game before but want to grab this iteration that has been developed for the 10th anniversary, this is what you'll have to pay. Conversely, though, if you're someone who already bought Skyrim Special Edition on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC, you'll instead only need to pay $19.99 to upgrade to Anniversary Edition.
In addition to revealing these new pricing specifics, Bethesda also confirmed that Skyrim Anniversary Edition will be getting a physical release at retail stores. While the game will only be solid physically for PS4 and Xbox One platforms, those looking to play on PS5 or Xbox Series X will still receive a unique next-gen upgrade for the title that will feature "enhanced graphics, faster loading times and more."
If you didn't already have the launch of Skyrim Anniversary Edition circled on your calendar, the latest version of the game will drop next week on November 11. This date actually lines up ten years to the date in which The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim originally released on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, which is a very cool move on Bethesda's part.
