Bethesda’s Pete Hines has answered a couple of queries regarding The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition PC version.

According to Hines, Skyrim Special Edition PC will be an entirely new game in Steam Library. This essentially means separate Achievements, all new Creation Kit, and even non-transferable save files.

While I’m sure we will discover a way to transfer save files later down the road, players who are rooting to transfer their Steam Achievements to Skyrim Special Edition and continue their 100% progress from there are out of luck.



Moreover, Hines also showed his concerns regarding the Xbox One version of the game which is not up for pre-orders yet, implying that it may have something to do with Microsoft instead of Bethesda – the game can be pre-ordered on PSN Store.


The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition PC version will be free to everyone who already owns The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and all its DLCs on Steam. It seems like Bethesda wants everyone to get a fresh start and relish the amazing ride that TES-V is!

In relevant Skyrim Special Edition news, Bethesda recently explained why fans will never get a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. According to Bethesda, the time and effort required to remaster a decade old game is better utilized in creating a new game. Since Bethesda had already worked on Xbox One Backwards Compatible Skyrim, a major chunk of technical exercise was already done. To read up more, head over to the post!

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition is slated to release on Oct. 28, 2016 for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One.
