Set two hundred years after the events of Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim takes role-playing games to a whole new level. The land of Skyrim has tumbled headlong into civil war after the assassination of the King. Add in the rising god-dragon Alduin who is hell-bent on destroying the world and things are looking bad. The only possible saviour? You, of course.

Developer Bethesda made the world larger than ever, incorporating a bigger story, more quests and more characters than any previous Elder Scrolls game. With this Special Edition the game is bigger than ever, with not only all the game's DLC, but also Nintendo-specific features. There's motion control support for everything from melee combat to picking locks, and even Zelda-themed gear thanks to amiibo support. Who could resist wielding the Master Sword in the world of Skyrim?

Beginning (as always) as a prisoner on your way to your execution, players will be encouraged to travel through the world of Tamriel, developing their character however they see fit to save the world. While Skyrim may well be set firmly in the usual tropes you would expect from a fantasy game, the level of depth in the game is unparalleled, allowing you to experience the game how you want to.

After five years of development, you would expect Bethesda to have poured a huge amount of work into Skyrim. With stunning graphics and audio (with voices from over 70 actors including three Oscar nominees) this is one of the deepest, most involved games of all time. A truly fitting addition to the Elder Scrolls series.
