The fact that Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is already available on every platform and everywhere under the sun has become something of a meme, but in reality, the game continues to evolve.
The Anniversary Edition of Bethesda’s hugely popular role-playing game is out today, October 6, on the Epic Games Store. The Skyrim Anniversary Edition itself costs $50, while the upgrade for existing owners is $20.
The Anniversary Edition comes with the base game, all three expansions – Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn – and plenty of innovative club content. It also includes some new game elements, like fishing.

The launch of Skyrim Anniversary Edition on the Epic Games Store comes not long after the RPG was released on another platform, the Switch. However, reports say that the Switch version leaving a lot to be desired.
Game director Todd Howard said in 2018 that Bethesda continues to release new versions of Skyrim and on additional platforms, because games make money. “If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it,” Howard joked.
