The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition is right around the corner and Bethesda has dropped a bunch more details ahead of its November 11th launch.
Firstly though, for anyone who owns The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition on Xbox One, certain pieces of content will be introduced for free, including fishing, some new quests and much more.
Here's everything coming in the free update:

- Rare Curios: Included as part of Saints & Seducers, the Rare Curios creation brings additional goods imported from all over Tamriel to Skyrim’s Khajiit Caravans.
- Survival Mode: Previously released in 2017, the Survival Mode creation has your Dragonborn contend with the very elements of Skyrim itself to survive! Players must wear warm gear and seek shelter in cold climates to keep from freezing to death, as well as mind their hunger and exhaustion on top of the usual threats like pesky bandits and ambushing dragons.
- Fishing: Skyrim’s all-new Fishing mode creation lets you angle over 20 unique aquatic species across the area’s many bodies of water.
So what about the paid content? There's too much to detail, but the Bethesda blog post does break down some of the new elements. In a nutshell, the Skyrim Anniversary Edition of the game will feature all Creation Club content so far.
"What about all the other amazing creations already released for the game? That’s where The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition comes in. Available for purchase November 11, Skyrim Anniversary Edition features the complete Skyrim Special Edition PLUS all previously released Creation Club creations for the game – yes, that includes the four free creations, too!
Players will also be able to enjoy an all-new batch of creations, including new ways to play and new quests tapping into Tamriel’s history. In ‘Ghosts of the Tribunal’ you’ll earn over a dozen new weapons and armors previously featured in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, while ‘The Cause,’ has players encounter the Mythic Dawn, who aim to form a new Oblivion gate, and features brand new enemies, locations, and weapons – not to mention a conjurable Daedric horse! This is just some of the amazing new content releasing in November to mark the 10-year anniversary."
It's said players can upgrade to this from Skyrim Special Edition or even just purchase individual Creation Club content. All of the content will be seamlessly integrated into the world, bolstering an already impressive package.
There are also the next-gen enhancements coming to Xbox Series X|S, but Bethesda has said that information will come closer to the time. For now, you can feast your eyes on the trailer above and prepare for another adventure in Skyrim!
