The hits just keep coming for Xbox Game Pass, the monthly subscription service that gives members access to a huge library of games. The platform has already seen a lot of heavy-hitters these last couple of months and you can add The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition to the list.
As of December 15th, it will be available for members to play to their heart’s content. The Special Edition includes all kinds of new features and content, including upgraded art and effects, screen-space reflections, and dynamic depth of field.
Even just accessing the base experience is an incredible opportunity, especially for those that haven’t played this fifth main installment in a beloved and award-winning series. It was well received at launch and still continues to provide compelling RPG experiences for those that have stuck around.
You would be hard-pressed to find a more in-depth experience with limitless possibilities, from the ways you can customize your character to the compelling quests you can go on in an open-world environment that immerses you from the jump.
Bethesda has a lot to be proud of with Skyrim. It’s a game you can pick up and get lost in a world full of mystery and excitement. The main story line is compelling, which centers around the protagonist Dragonborn in his quest to defeat a powerful dragon by the name of Alduin the World-Eater.
But if you decide to hold off on the main storyline, you’ll find all kinds of interesting side quests and characters to engage with. The hours and hours of gameplay that you can put into this RPG is downright impressive.
Now that the Special Edition is coming to Xbox Game Pass, maybe a new wave of gamers can experience its awesome elements and appreciate one of the best RPGs in recent memory.
If you have an Xbox Game Pass membership, these sweet deals have been pretty frequent. Microsoft is doing everything possible to make the program worth members’ hard-earned money, whether it’s adding brand-new titles like Doom Eternal or getting others excited with tried and true gems like Skyrim.
This RPG is an amazing addition that paints a bright picture yet for the monthly membership program. Who knows what other superb titles are coming to the platform? You know Microsoft has a lot of great plans in store for fans.
2021 could even be one of the biggest years for the platform as Microsoft looks to keep pushing the Xbox Series X. We shall see.
