Rumor: Skyrim remaster for PS4 and Xbox One with mod support is in development0 Comments
It's been almost five years since the game's release, and RPG fans are still having fun with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. There's just so much to do and see within the title that even those who have beaten it and moved on are looking for a reason, any reason, to make a new character and live the adventure again. Well, if this latest rumor proves to be true, that reason has arrived.
As reported by Eurogamer, a pair of insiders believe that a remastered version of Skyrim may be in the pipeline. From what has been said, the new version will be enhanced to run on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will crucially include support for modifications.
Mods are perhaps the biggest reason that PC players have been adventuring throughout Skyrim for so long, as they allow users to easily tailor the game toward their playstyle, be it with simple graphical tweaks, expanded lore, or even the addition of a cow named Tim. There was little surprise and much fanfare when Bethesda announced console mod support for Fallout 4, so it stands to reason that they'd add the same support for a Skyrim re-release.
Even though this rumor comes from two distinct sources, it's not exactly wise to assume it is true. If it's all malarky, Bethesda will likely soon break our hearts with a statement saying so. If it isn't, we very well may be hearing about the Skyrim remaster at Bethesda's E3 conference this coming Sunday.
