Skyim Anniversary Edition, the definitive comparison: PS5 vs Xbox Series X | S

Skyim Anniversary Edition, the definitive comparison: PS5 vs Xbox Series X | S

Skyim Anniversary Edition, the definitive comparison

It's time for Skyrim again: with the release of the Anniversary Edition, in fact, the spotlight has returned to the Bethesda game, which debuted for the first time in 2011. In addition to being able to get your hands on the adventure created by Todd Howard and associates, however, it is once again a time for comparisons. And in the end the question is always the same: which version runs better?

The Skyim video comparison in the Anniversary Edition version was made involving all the next gen platforms. And so, the adventure created by Bethesda was compared in the versions PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and of course PC, the reference platform by Bethesda. The video was made by YouTube user ElAnalistaDeBits, who usually brings similar comparisons for practically all the games that arrive on Sony and Microsoft consoles.

As can be seen from the video, which you can find immediately below, the better version doesn't really exist. Skyrim on PlayStation 5 in fact runs in native 4K and is the only version that manages to reach that resolution natively among all consoles. However, on the Xbox Series X the Bethesda home game manages to reach 2160p with a higher high draw distance, even compared to the PC one. The textures, unfortunately, are of the same quality on all platforms. In general, however, it was really difficult to achieve a slightly better result than the current one, also considering the now ten-year release of the original version.

If you are intrigued by the video comparison, as usual, we invite you to view the video available immediately above. The Skyrim anniversary edition is available starting November 11, 2021 and was released on the same day as the original. The same fate will befall Starfield, Bethesda's first original IP in over twenty years.

Fallout 4 is Bethesda's latest great original game and you can get it for a bargain price on Amazon.

Now Playing: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition and Upgrade Overview Video

The Skyrim Anniversary Edition includes Skyrim Special Edition and all previously released Creation Club content--this adds new quests, modes, armor, and a fishing system.

Bethesda is also releasing a physical version of Skyrim's Anniversary Edition on PS4 and Xbox One, but pricing was not announced. Additionally, the bundle comes with a disc, but an internet connection is necessary to install the Creation Club content.

The FAQ also has some info on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S upgrades, which will be free. Players can expect 'enhanced graphics, faster loading times, and more.'

Finally, all Trophies and Achievements from the Skyrim Special Edition will also be applied to the Anniversary Edition, with one exception. Anyone who upgrades from PS4 to PS5 will have to start over on their Trophies.

November 11 is a very big day for new releases. GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition also releases that day alongside a re-release of the fan favorite Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic for Nintendo Switch.

Bethesda continues to support Skyrim so long after release because people keep buying the game. Bethesda's Todd Howard has said of Skyrim's longevity, 'If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it.' The Skyrim flood continues with a Skyrim board game, too.

Bethesda is currently developing a successor, The Elder Scrolls VI, but it's still some time off. On the more immediate horizon is Bethesda's sci-fi RPG Starfield, which releases in November 2022.
