Skyrim Legendary Edition releasing in June

Shares

Bethesda has confirmed plans to release The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition. As previously rumoured, the product will feature the main game, DLC packs Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn, plus the new features introduced in Skyrim title update1.9.

Legendary Edition is set for release on June 4 in North America, priced at $59.99. It will launch on June 7 across Europe and Australia with a £39.99 / €49.99 / AU$69.95 price tag on consoles, and for 29.99 / €39.99 / AU$49.95 on PC. Bethesda said earlier this month that there’s no more Skyrim DLC planned as the development team has moved on to its next project after more than 16 months of post-release support.

    Wowowow Bethesda, you still owe us at least two more pieces of DLC!

    If nothing substantial is added on to what many gamers already have, then why buy another $60? I suppose it will be great for those who don't have internet, to download the dlc in the first place.

    also a lot of people knew they'd release something like this eventually and decided to wait for it instead of buying the DLC separately.

    The Legendary edition is not aimed towards double-dippers. This is mostly for the people who waited to buy the game until there was an edition with all the major patches/DLC.

    Because instead of buying the game new at $60 and spending another $45 on DLC, I waited, knowing they'd release a version like this eventually, as did many others.

    I'm not doubting that, but the majority could not hold out like the few did. This leaves the question as to what financial gain Bethesda thinks they are going to achieve by releasing a legendary edition that adds no other content to what "the majority" already have. A couple thousand units may shift, but beyond that I doubt it will be that beneficial for the company.

    I think you'd be surprised how many people haven't picked up Skyrim, and might with it coming with the DLC for a significantly reduced price.

    I mean, this isn't the first time they've done this. They did the same things with Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas.

    Bethesda always releases Complete editions of their games (Oblivion, Fallout 3/New Vegas, and now this). I doubt that they would continue making them if they weren't profitable
