Skyrim: Legendary Edition Confirmed
Update: Bethesda has confirmed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition will be available on June 4 in North America and June 7 throughout Europe and Australia.
The bundle will include the original game plus the three official expansions, Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn, along with other patched improvements such as combat cameras, mounted combat, the Legendary difficulty mode and Legendary skills that allow you to master all perks and level up skills indefinitely.
The PS3 and Xbox versions have advised retail prices of $59.99 / £39.99 / €49.99 / AU$69.95, while the PC version comes in slightly cheaper in most regions at $59.99 / £29.99 / €39.99 / AU$49.95.
Original story follows.
Original Story: A Skyrim: Legendary Edition containing all DLC packs as well as the original game has been spotted on a Polish retail site.
The listing over at Ultima (via Eurogamer Poland) reveals that the edition will contain the vampire-spectacular Dawnguard, the home-building Hearthfire and the dragon-riding Dragonborn all in one package.
It’s listed as being available for PS3 and Xbox 360 for roughly £35/$54, while the PC version comes in slightly cheaper at £29/$44.
So, is it real? Well, Bethesda is staying tight-lipped right now, but seeing as it’s regularly created Game of the Year bundles containing all expansion content for its previous titles, including for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, the smart money’s on this one being legit.
Earlier this week, a post on the Bethblog explained that the Skyrim team was “moving on” and the game wouldn’t be receiving any more major content additions. Given this, the imminent announcement of a special edition of the game containing all DLC would make sense, seeing as it’s pretty much confirmed now that no more will be coming.
Would you pick up the Skyrim: Legendary Edition if it’s a real thing, or have you already had your fill of Skyrim and its various expansions? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
