Bethesda has announced that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition has gone gold, which means the game's development is complete and it's now ready to manufacture and distribute for retail release. In addition, the system requirements for PC and Storage Requirements for consoles have also been revealed.

Skyrim Special Edition on PS4 requires 20GB of space in North America and 33GB in Europe, while the Xbox One version requires 17GB in North America and 25GB in Europe. The difference in size is most likely related to the inclusion of multiple European languages in the European version.

Here are the PC System Requirements:


  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
  • Intel i5-750/AMD Phenom II X4-945.
  • 8GB of ram.
  • 12 GB free HDD space
  • NVIDIA GTX 470 1GB /AMD HD 7870 2GB


  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
  • Intel i5-2400/AMD FX-8320.
  • 8GB of ram.
  • 12 GB free HDD space
  • NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB /AMD R9 290 4GB

The game will feature remastered art and effects, dynamic depth of field, new snow/water shaders, among other graphical enhancements. It will also come with mod support across both console and PC.

Skyrim: Special Edition releases on the 28th of October on PS4, Xbox One and PC. PC players that already own Skyrim and all its DLC will be able to download the game for free.
