Bethesda may have officially announced that it is finished with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but that’s not strictly true. Now that everyone has Skyrim, and all of the DLC, Bethesda is confirming last week’s rumours that on June the 7th you will finally be able to buy Skyrim, and all of the DLC, in one beautiful package, saving you the pain and fury of having to access them from one place of your chosen games machine’s hard-drive instead of from another.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition, or THEVSLE as it will be known on ‘the street,’ will include the game itself and the three DLC releases – Hearthfire, Dragonborn, and Dawnguard – and all the patches that were released during those wobbly first few months. It’s a pretty standard set-up, done quite often, and it was going to happen at some point. This story isn’t news really, sort of more like a notification that this will be happening on June 7th so, you know, start saving your pocket money.
For some reason it’s very seriously called an SKU all over the internet, which is a bit annoying. Let’s not beat around the bush – it’s not an SKU, it’s a game. You’re allowed to say game, you don’t have to be a machine. It’s a game, a game in which you play a man or an elf and you can fight dragons. Get over yourselves. Just go and buy the bloody game and feel good about yourself, stop using the silly PR talk and try to get back in touch with your inner child. You’ll feel better for it and you’ll probably make friends more quickly, then you’ll be able to reconnect with your family. Maybe you’ll be able to see your grandparents again, work yourself back into their lives before it’s too late.
So yeah, Skyrim Legendary Edition is out June 7th.
