Bethesda is announcing more details on Skyrim’s 10th Anniversary Edition due out next month.
The hugely popular RPG Bethesda The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim celebrates its 10th anniversary in November, and the company is launching the Skyrim Anniversary Edition to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Described as the “most complete” version of the game to date, Bethesda has now shared a bit more information on what to expect.
The Anniversary Edition includes four new Creation Club creations that add many new activities. The Saints & Sinners content includes two more quests, as well as more sets of armor, weapons, and enemies. Crafting Rare Curiosities includes many new items, including ingredients for making special potions and poisons. Survival mode is also included, which makes the world even more harsh. You will need to prepare appropriately to survive the cold, and you will need to find food to stay alive while fighting off bandits and dragons all the time.
In addition, fishing is coming in the Anniversary Edition. The game features over 20 unique fish that players can catch to eat or display at home. The fish can also be kept as pets and placed in the aquarium. “Since many of the fishing spots are located in the region’s most exciting and tranquil spots, there is nothing better than relaxing on the beach as you complete the quest lines in this upcoming free creation,” Bethesda said.
Everyone who owns the Skyrim Special Edition will receive these four creations, and the Anniversary Edition comes with the Special Edition and all previously released Creation Club content, including the ones mentioned above.
In addition, the Anniversary Edition includes more creations, including “Ghosts of the Tribunal,” which features over a dozen weapons and armor. Elsewhere, “The Cause” includes an encounter with the Mythical Dawn, as well as new enemies, weapons, locations, and a Daedric horse.
Those who already own Skyrim Special Edition can purchase the Anniversary Update to get the rest of the creations, although the price has not been disclosed. In addition, all creations can be purchased individually, prices will be announced at a later date.
What’s more, Bethesda has announced a change to the Creation Club quests. All of them will no longer appear when loading the game. “We know that some players found the influx of new character quests overwhelming, especially those with a lot of creations,” Bethesda said.

Bethesda continues to support Skyrim long after release because people keep buying the game. Bethesda’s Todd Howard said of Skyrim’s longevity: “If you want us to stop releasing it, don’t buy it.”
Bethesda is currently developing a successor, The Elder Scrolls VI, but it still has some time to go. On a closer horizon is Bethesda’s sci-fi RPG Starfield, due out in November 2022.
