In the dank underbelly of Riften, through the sewers that service the town and into the dripping cistern that the Thieves Guild calls home, is a man called Rune. He rises at 8am, stands about for most of the day until 10pm, and then goes to practise with his dagger on a dummy for a few hours until bedtime.
Bethesda Softworks is putting on an orchestral concert dedicated to the tunes of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
This all seems mighty familiar. The sun splits the trees to my right while long sprawling shadows are cast over the lake; fireflies flutter overhead, close enough to be plucked out of the air; a nearby waterfall cascades from a river hundreds of feet above.
UPDATE 2: It's confirmed that saves will transfer between vanilla Skyrim and Skyrim: Special Edition on PC.
Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines confirmed the following on Twitter:
UPDATE: Bethesda has announced that if you own Skyrim on Steam and all its downloadable content, or if you own the Legendary Edition, you'll be upgraded to the Special Edition for free.
Earlier this week you might have seen Wes' post about hitting a potentially game-breaking bug after 91 hours spent playing Fallout 4.
The fascinating community project to recreate beloved Elder Scrolls game Morrowind in Skyrim's engine has progress to share.
Can you believe The Eurogamer Show is five* already? Me neither. They grow up so fast!
Got a few hours spare? Bethesda's got you covered with a new Elder Scrolls Anthology pack for PC.
Imagine being 19 years old and coveting a job at Bethesda Game Studios, renowned maker of The Elder Scrolls series of RPGs and Fallout 3. What would you do? How could you get this most prestigious developer's attention?
Bethesda has announced the heavily-rumoured Skyrim: Legendary Edition.
It launches in Europe and Australia on 7th June for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 for £39.99.
The Legendary Edition includes all the downloadable add-ons, Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn, and all the nifty added features implemented since the game's 2011 launch, including combat camera, mounted combat, the Legendary difficulty mode and Legendary skills.
Our friends at Eurogamer Poland have unearthed the Skyrim: Legendary Edition, which is said to contain the core game along with its Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn DLC packs.
$300! I couldn't believe it. It's only 16 inches tall.
Go on, splash out!
PlayStation 3 owners can at last download Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC. It's available on the EU PlayStation Store today, priced £6.49/€7.99.
Update: The UK release dates for Skyrim's PS3 DLC have been confirmed to follow a day behind their US counterparts. That means Dragonborn will be out on 13th February, Hearthfire on the 20th and Dawnguard on the 27th.
PS3 fans: Dawnguard and Hearthfire are heading your way - finally.
I've fallen back in love, and it feels great. My romance with Skyrim last winter - has it really been a year? - was heady and intense, but over the months since it cooled considerably. My levelling up had levelled off. The map markers were all filled in, and all that was left for me to do was maybe consider finally trying my hand at alchemy.
My malaise was deepened, rather than alleviated, by the lacklustre DLC so far. Dawnguard tried to spice up our waning passion by squeezing a perfunctory questline into an already busy map, but leaned too hard on a clumsy gimmick that let me turn into a lumbering Vampire Lord who couldn't fit through doors or open cupboards, as if that was a thing I'd ever expressed an interest in. Hearthfire tried to get me to settle down, offering three plots of land on which to build identical houses that I could fill with furniture, provided I didn't mind having no say over what the furniture was or where it was placed. There was also talk of adoption, but the life of an adventurer leaves little room for watching an eerie digital child loop through the same animations and voice clips over and over.
Just as I'd resigned myself to the thought that it was time for me and Skyrim to part ways, along comes Dragonborn and all the wonder, the thrill, the passion comes flooding back.
