Just a couple of weeks remain before Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Special Edition drops in the market. Now the file size for the game has been revealed through Microsoft’s Xbox store.

The download size for the Bethesda’s remastered version of Skyrim was revealed through Australian Microsoft Xbox Store, and the game will take up 22.75 GB of space on your hard drive.

However, the file size is way bigger than the Xbox 360 version which was only 4 GB. But given that Skyrim Special Edition includes all DLCs and updated textures, the size makes sense.

While the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will have to buy Skyrim Special Edition, the PC users on the other hand who already have Elder Scrolls V Skyrim in their library along with all of its DLC will get this upgrade for free.

Mods have been one of the many features that has kept Skyrim relevant to gamers for many years, and Skyrim Special Edition will also get mod support but only for PC and Xbox One, due to the fact that Sony won’t let Bethesda implement it.

However, recently Besthesda said that they are still looking for ways to have Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition mod support on Playstation 4. And how Bethesda plans to bring them to the PS4, was not specified.

While one option has being discussed over the community, that console commands can be used to bring mods to PS4, but to their disappointment, Bethesda shot down this idea, as both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 dos not support console commands. This means that at least console commands aren’t the alternative option to bring Mod Support to PS4.

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Special Edition is scheduled to launch on Octoebr 28, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
