Legendary Release

Today we’re happy to announce plans to release the complete Skyrim collection with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® Legendary Edition.

Coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on June 4th for $59.99 (European territories will see its release on June 7th), this package includes the most up-to-date version of the original game (employing the 1.9 title update),as well as the game’s three add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

Reader Comments

  1. Before the dev team “moves on” will they at least fix the awful NPC lip-sync bug introduced by 1.9?

    Yes they got the NPC’s sleeping with eyes open bug with 1.9.31.0.8 (the other bug introduced by the initial patch 1.9) but not the lip-sync problem. Looks like a badly dubbed foreign film when in dialogue :(

  2. All of you gtfo. Maybe some of us have waited for this because some countries don’t give you the luxury of limitless bandwidth and can’t be arsed downloading it. Plus it’s cheaper buying this way so the only thing you can whine about is that your impatience got the best of you.

  3. The best game I played in years. Nothing can compare to it. Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn are also incredibly nicely done, being Dawnguard my favorite, because Vampire Lords are extremely fun to play.

    If you don’t have this game I absolutely recommend you to grab it nao!

  4. Of course betheda wants to make money off this,this is mainly for people who dont have access to the internet.who cares if it doesnt have a pretty package design,i for one think its pretty cool.oblivion goty package wasnt all pretty either but who cares.i am definitly getting this to add to my collection.so again,thank you bethesda for making the best elder scrolls game or i should say best GAME EVER……keep up the good work and cant wait to see what you guys and gals have in store for the next elder scrolls game.

  5. Will there be additional maps ?

    For example, a map of Solstheim, an extended map of Skyrim with the Castle Volkhiar, the Dayspring Canyon and the Forgotten Vale, maps of Blackreach, the Soul Cairn, Apocrypha?

  6. I can see where this would be useful for people who don’t have Skyrim, but right now I can’t even say it’s worth it for the new people aside from maybe the modding capabilities of the PC version.

    I spent my fair share of time in Skyrim, but the entire game just kinda feels unfinished. The arena is there but not accessible, several of the quests were supposed to play out differently, and things like the Stormcloak victory, and the Thalmor were pretty much just left with a cliff hanger.

    Also you guys screwed up MFG in the 1.9 update. You might want to fix that, since many facial expressions that the NPC’s make aren’t working properly.

    • They messed up a lot with 1.9. My husband doesn’t sound right when I shop with him, my kid keeps going on about the cute doggy I don’t have following me, and there are lots of things they still haven’t fixed like the Missing Apprentices quest or the kidnapped spouse quest.

      • if its the one with the deadric gauntlet you need to master illusion to find the hidden chest in the college library.

  7. Really…..You guys really couldn’t just make a Wii-U version to go along with all the others ???? Then you third party developers have the balls to say the core players and the install base is not on Nintendo platforms. Here is a hint…..if you don’t provide the content, Nintendo owners can’t buy it !!! You can’t expand your audience if you don’t show that specific audience they are important to you!! You have to start leading by example, not follow what other 3rd parties are doing. So sad a good game like this skips a good new system :/

  8. I have a Question Bethesda. I heard the PS3 version of skyrim had serious issues involving framerate to the point of being nearly unplayable. So what I want To Know is will The PS3 version of Skyrim Legendary edition have the framerate issues fixed? I Cant afford getting the necessary requirements to get my Ps3 online to patch the Game. Please Answer soon. Thanks!

  9. I love the morons posting here who are claiming this release is just another way to ‘milk’ the fanbase. Clearly you are not intelligent enough to grasp the simple notion that NOT EVERYBODY BOUGHT SKYRIM…

    or how about this

    NOT EVERYBODY BUYS DLC. Wait… I got another… NOT EVERYBODY HAS INTERNET ACCESS TO PURCHASE DLC.

    I knew this version of the game was going to be released eventually, and I am happy as hell for it.

  10. ATTENTION
    Bethesda please launch sufficient games in India. We have twice the population of N america. You can make huge profits. We cant find a decent elder scrolls game anywhere in India. I got one after a lot of effort. Please release a digitally remastered collection of elder scroll games from arena till oblivion. TRUST ME you will make huge profits. PS Hire me.

    • Huge profits? I do believe most people in india cannot afford a PS3/Xbox or high-spec PC. Unless I’m mistaken?

  11. That’s all? No more content updates or DLC’s? I can also buy Dragonborn and Hearthfire Individually and save 35 bucks.
    What the hell… I was hoping for something new, at least an update of some kind. Meh…

    • I was hoping for a steel case but this will suffice from the GREATEST GAMING COMPANY on the PLANET! In the UNIVERSE!!! YAAARGGHHH!!!

    • “That’s all? No more content updates or DLC’s? I can also buy Dragonborn and Hearthfire Individually and save 35 bucks.”

      Good for you buddy, but for people that haven’t already bought Skyrim it’s cheaper than buying it and all of the DLC separately.

  12. @gstaff

    is the lip-syncing bug, eye blinking bug and all the other issues with Skyrim 1.9 for free, or included in the price?

    It is definately a shame that Beth did not even state a single word about this Problem which has been well known since the first week of March.

  13. Bethesda please release sufficient copies of elder scrolls games in India. Its a huge market. I had to undergo a lot of trouble to get skyrim. Please release a digitally remastered version of arena to oblivion.

  14. I’m honestly just happy to see the DLC coming to PS3. I sold Skyrim a while ago and wouldn’t mind shelling out a couple of bucks to pick it back up again. Can’t wait to finally play those add-ons. yeeaaah!

    • I fear that they will never fix that. They just released a buggy 1.9 “Legendary” Skyrim Edition. wtf

      Best to get a physical copy of Skyrim from 11.11.11 and install it from disc.

        • Well I can! Just delete your current game and update data files, then run from the disc, and when it offers to update, cancel. It’ll then go ahead and install the 1.0 version, which you can run.

          Of course, you can’t use any game saves from later versions, so you’ll need to start a new character, and you’re stuck with all the bugs that got fixed in 1.4/5/6/7 etc. – including the PS3 memory problem :(
          You DO get to see the waving trees again and better graphics quality, but not the souped up underwater effects, and no DLC of course. If only there was some way of installing 1.7 on its own!

  15. I think that “legendary” is a bit of an overstatement. If all you’re getting is all the add-ons and patches then you may aswell leave it. Most people already have all the add-ons and everybody has the patches (unless you don’t have online connection) But I think I might get it anyways, looks just a bit better, font know why…

  16. I don’t know if anyone addressed this yet or not… but what about those of us who have bought the dlcs religiously as they cane out. I love skyrim and i bought it all. To be honest as a player, consumer and one of the people who contributes funding for your industry I kind of rhe think the Legendary levels and modes should be offered as a free dlc for buying all of the other ones. You used to do it with Fallout, why not nowm

  17. YYEEESSSS.

    I was so very upset Bethesda never thought of people such as myself who cannot afford x box live to get all those gorgeous DLCs. I almost cried everytime I heard there was a new one coming out.
    I ave been playing Skyrim since day one and it blows my mind what ye have created. Thank You. I only play Dead Is Dead, I am totally in love with the game. I only have three game in my collection, yours IS number1.

    Thank you for releasing this to be bought in stores now I can get them….I am over the moon quite literally. Thanks, Paul from Ireland.

  18. They should add something else. The book, maybe a couple of Septim coins, a complete Tamriel map (high quality like Skyrim’s map, not like Oblivion’s map).

  19. What the heck? Beth I don’t get you anymore. They really can’t wait to make a GOTY edition? How long will they milk Skyrim? I love Skyrim but c’mon Beth really?

  20. I don’t understand why everyone complains about the littlest of problems. There is no such thing as the perfect game. But skyrim is the closest to one that I’ve seen. Stop complaining guys seriously. I’d like to see you do a better job.

  21. Ah I was really hoping for a new playable race, like dremora but alas, great game anyways. Perhaps a swordrunners update in the future lol

  22. Skyrim is the best elderscrolls game i ever played and its a very good game i have all three dlc add ons to it and is the rumor true that Bethesda is going to put out another dlc (Redguard)

  23. So looking at the comments there’s still the need for Steam?

    If so that’s disappointing, I’ll just wait for a sale on the rest of the DLC if that’s the case.

  24. So slap me if this is a stupid question: I’ve been waiting on the dlc’s on disc but can I install it over my existing copy of Skyrim? Will this try to register TWO copies of Skyrim on steam?

  25. I was wondering if when we buy this Legendary version, will we be able to use our save data from the original disk? I’ve spent a lot of time on my character and I’d hate to start over and do it all again. If any body would know please fill me in, thank you!!:)

  26. Beth, I’m still waiting for the bug fix on Hearthfire where you can’t buy the plot of land if you have completed the DARK BROTHERHOOD quest.

  27. A little bit expensive for my liking but I feel that I owe them, (since Skyrim was my first TES game) I bought it off a friend for cheap in the first couple months and got the DLC 1/2 price (PS3). Some other PS3 users will disagree but I never encountered any (Even slightly) major bugs, despite not updating the game until a year later.

    Still, I will buy this for my laptop, even though it definitely will not run well on it, as it releases just after my birthday. I am mainly going to use it to hack my PS3 save.

  28. Does the physical copy of the legendary edition come with the map of skyrim poster,or any skyrim poster?

  29. Does one require internet connection for the legendary ediition to function? Or does the DLC’s come on a double disk package? i.e. No code and no need to download off xbl/psn

  30. hey i was wanting to know what the pros and cons r for turning ur perks to legendary I’m in the middle of being able to do that and i want to know more before i do it

  31. QUESTION(S):

    Will the release will be physical?, I mean with box, cd and whatnot…

    Will you ship the physical copies worldwide? either by retail or direct shipment (I live in Mexico, and I would like an english version copy [thing is that in most games, spanish copies are in Euro spanish dialect/accent, which is kinda annoying])…

    PD:
    THANK YOU GUYS, BEST GAMING EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. “EPIC” AND “LEGENDARY” ARE AN UNDERSTATEMENT. THIS IS MY FIRST RPG AND ELDER SCROLL GAME I PLAY AT FULL, AND I DEFINITELY WILL BE LOOKING FOR YOUR NEXT WORK IN THE FUTURE.

  32. Well I would buy it had I not bought all the dlc already due to the face that buying them together is cheaper than buying them separate the game itself is 50$ so your getting it all 40$ dollars cheaper

  33. EASY WII U PORT….”Really…..You guys really couldn’t just make a Wii-U version to go along with all the others ???? Then you third party developers have the balls to say the core players and the install base is not on Nintendo platforms. Here is a hint…..if you don’t provide the content, Nintendo owners can’t buy it !!! You can’t expand your audience if you don’t show that specific audience they are important to you!! You have to start leading by example, not follow what other 3rd parties are doing. So sad a good game like this skips a good new system :/”

  34. If I get it for Xbox will I get dawnguard heartfire and dragonborn for free or will there be codes to put In for Xbox live?
