Earlier this summer, Bethesda released the Skyrim Legendary Edition. I covered the pre-release announcement in an earlier Skyrim Fansite article. While we here at the Fansite were excited to see a definitive Skyrim released — the most up-to-date version of the game plus the three DLC addons (Dawnguard, Hearthfire, Dragonborn) — the release was bittersweet, for it officially marked the end of the game we love so well.
C’est lavie … no more crying in my Horningbrew Mead. What’s done is done, and like so many of you I still haven’t fully explored everything the world of Skyrim has to offer. It’s hard to be sad when there’s still so much to see and so much to do!
And speaking of things to do, I decided now would be a good time to record a YouTube video giving an overview of the Skyrim Legendary Editon (something I intended to do back in June, but unfortunately never got around to). Lately we received questions in our inbox regarding the release, wanting to know our opinion as to whether gamers should upgrade to Legendary and wondering how the DLC content is delivered (on disc or online via a redeemable coupon code). For the video, I give an overview of the Skyrim Legendary Edition and unbox a brand new copy of the Xbox 360 version to show viewers what’s on the inside (all the information presented in the video is applicable to the PS3 and PC versions as well).
All in all, I was pleased with how Bethesda put together the release (a minor gripe regarding the included map — I go into detail in the video), and it’s definitely a good thing for gamers to have a hard copy of the DLC at their disposal.
So what are your thoughts regarding the Skyrim Legendary Edition? Do you have a copy yet, and if not, do you plan on upgrading to this version in the future?
