Back in June during E3 2016, it was confirmed that a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was on the way called Skyrim Special Edition.
The new edition includes a shiny new version of the game complete with all of the add-on DLC content that was released after its initial launch. The game is set to be released in less than a week on October 28th, and now a second trailer has been released to show more gameplay action from the Special Edition.

For those of you who might be ready to dive into Skyrim and the Elder Scrolls series for the first time, first of all, welcome! I’m super jealous of you. Also, here’s some info on the game and its DLC releases:
THE ELDER SCROLLS V: SKYRIM
The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons.
With this official add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, journey off the coast of Morrowind, to the island of Solstheim. Encounter new towns, dungeons, and quests, as you traverse the ash wastes and glacial valleys of this new land. Become more powerful with shouts that bend the will of your enemies and even tame dragons. Your fate, and the fate of Solstheim, hangs in the balance as you face off against your deadliest adversary – the first Dragonborn.
The Vampire Lord Harkon has returned to power. By using the Elder Scrolls, he seeks to do the unthinkable – to end the sun itself. Will you join the ancient order of the Dawnguard and stop him? Or will you become a Vampire Lord? In Dawnguard, the ultimate choice will be yours.
With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up – from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter’s workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.
Fans of Bethesda’s games might have been more excited about a remastered re-release of an older game in the series such as Morrowind or Oblivion, but there is a good reason for why they polished up the most recent Elder Scrolls—which first arrived almost five years ago already—for a re-release instead.
