    What a lazy remaster. Hardly looks any different. You are better off modding the original.

  • GrabberBythePuss

    Damn listening to this music made me feel so nostalgic. I love Skyrim so much.

  • Jonathan Manning

    Damn the difference at 2:18 is actually huge

  • Sunfire789

    should i be impressed?

  • TruScottishGuy

    Thank god I got this for free on PC the most laziest remaster I've ever seen hardly any difference at all.

  • Ser Garlan Tyrell

    They should have just incorporated some of the best mods into the game as standard and called it a day and people would have loved it.

  • Hotshots2890

    so they gave you a game with Shaders updated from 2.0 to 4.0... GG 200% profit on the same game

  • zen strata

    So... The Remastered version adds more fog and makes things harder to see? . . . because thats basically the biggest change i've noticed...

  • Farmerfrugal

    lighting, shadows, foliage, draw distance, and water are better. the textures are a slight upgrade but it's nothing drastic. luckily it's 64bit instead of 32bit so the mods will be significantly better and probably way more optimized for SSE. i still love it though!

  • T0m My

    Definitely seems like they should of done Oblivion and then maybe Skyrim on the next generation. Xbox Scorpio maybe

  • Francois Roy

    That's the most embarrassing non-remaster of all time. It's kind of crazy that they gave it away on PC yet are charging the full premium price for the console version..

  • Venom 007

    Changing the lighting in the game could be considered a remaster now?

  • Aldo L

    ok ill just put the brightness up on my monitor

  • FreelanceXD

    The difference is a lot more noticeable in person, however, still insignificant.

  • Nuclear Shadowscale

    I'm so bad at noticing the differences in these videos, the only thing that stood out to me was the change in contrast.

  • RottenProduce

    Reminds me of how glad I am we've moved past the bland, "gritty" earth-tone colors that dominated last gen. gaming.

  • Scyllaya

    I think what's more important is that the game is much more stable now and the framerates are also significantly better everywhere. Also, it runs on 64x.e.g. I had issues with Skyrim in Win 10, but those crashes and performance issues will no longer be there. Now we will be able to add more mods without risking performance as well. And hey, new creation kit. This is anything but useless, especially since it's free for PC, so why complain?

  • charvelgtrs

    Obviously the current gen consoles will be seeing a bigger boost with the remasters compared to the PS3/360 vs the PC version compared to the original PC release.

  • Hypeless

    The thing that most changed are the system requirements

  • Brannon H

    Where is my Oblivion remaster???

  • ofek 1

    It looks the same, bethesda drones will buy it anyway

  • Mufasa the lion

    It looks like the only things they changed are the brightness and the trees...

  • Adamham82

    Just a money grab thats all

  • drug

    an improvement.looks better than fallout 4not worth moneymods do betterfeels bad man

  • Sergio Cabrera

    Got this for free for having all the DLCs and Base Game on PC. If anything, this remaster provides a new foundation for Mods moving forward and less on improving the Skyrim experience since Nexus and Steam Workshop already have tons of mods that do that already.

  • Evolution Games

    The texture mods in Original is much better than this remaster

  • Cory in the Maus

    Better off downloading higher res textures from the workshop lmao.

  • K-Watte Entertainment Studios

    The only difference I've seen is higher resolution, brighter saturation, more diverse lighting, forgetable depth of field, and higher draw distance. Which in my book is AMAZING for consoles 😂! This remaster was clearly meant for the console crowd, since PC can mod the graphics and such.

  • Bruno Jorge

    Lets be honest, besides the new lighting effects and better performance the game still looks like shit! Skyrim is one of the best games ever made but it needs mods to look really good. Bethesda thanks but modders do a better job when it comes to remaster your games!

  • Space Bud95

    So many people saying the Special Edition is a waste of money and that there's no difference..For starters there's a clear difference in terms of rendering capability. Better lighting/shadows, better antialiasing, more ground clutter, sharper textures, etc.And for whatever reason the people who say how shit the game is tend to ignore mentioning the best part about it.. IT'S 64 BIT!!For those who don't know what that means.. 64 bit basically means the game has access to more memory. in the original version the game was limited to using about 4GB of RAM..Now that limitation is gone the game can have a lot more going on without crashing. It also means modders can make more substantial mods than before. I don't know about the rest of you but I'm super keen on the idea of large scale battles between the Imperials and Stormcloaks or some huge Daedric invasions :D

  • Juan Pablo Chalave

    so, it's skyrim with instagram filters

  • Kadmon Jr.

    Veteran Skyrim players: you just got a free game but not really worth itNew players: just get the original and mod it, it'll look and run better

  • Whiterun Guard

    I'm not complaining because I got it free anyways lol

  • lemstry

    Thank God my friend is a sucker and bought and game shared this over priced game with me. I got more important things to buy like Final Fantasy XV which is a definite Game of the Year contender this year.

  • Grenet

    i like the original better....

  • kilo365days

    take the original and download some texture mods theirs your special edition lol

  • GreatBeef

    Bought the special edition for PC and just wanted to make sure I wasnt going crazy of there being no difference almost

  • JakkeH

    spend $60 or just mod the original one

  • DAY-V Entertainment™

    I would easily forgive if there was no extra quests but I was at least expecting a change in the lip syncing.

  • BlizzardKhaos

    Great graphics, but nit as great as the graphics you get from mods

  • Roy Baines

    Prefer legendary with immersive color saturation mod from Nexus.

  • justin Jhon

    literally no difference...

  • xXMinniNinJaXx

    At least is running in 64 bit now and is much more optimized.. Mods will take care if the visuals.


    Should have been named "Skyrim: Special Foliage Edition"

  • QueenEtna

    saw this in my steam library i literally didnt notice i had the remastered version too.. All they did was add more fog to some places and did some color correction :L

  • Lucian Leesonja

    I can download free mods of the steam workshop and get a better graphical improvement.

  • Leroy Leon

    We can all agree they should of made oblivion remasteted

  • RexSol


  • RexSol

    ''hurr durr the original looks better'' SHUT YE FOOKIN MOUTH 64-bit DirectX 11 enough said

  • Ramesses

    Hardly deserving of the Remastered title more like Skyrim console cash grab edition.

  • Ben

    wow the original looks better in a lot of places...

  • Danny Barzegar

    god the differences are so subtlenot worth the asking price40$ sounds more reasonable

  • NinjaGabe11B

    I just don't see how this justifies another $60Pass

  • whatEver

    Good but really unappealing with the $60 price tag especially when this is the season of new releases. Gonna have to wait for it to drop to $15.

  • Jorge Gonçalves Junior

    Original Skyrim + SweetFX = More better than remaster! :P

  • lolpl0000

    tfw original looks better more atmospheric and with a soul.

  • Pienimusta

    true question is : 32bit modded vs 64bit modded

  • Michael Yogibara

    I seen NOTHING worth what their asking. Mods and the 2011 version are fine with me.

  • Anderson Stelmack

    I think u can get much better graphics with mods on the original game

  • Ed

    Let's just change the color pallet, hopefully nobody notices.

  • byso95

    with some of these clips i even prefer the original

  • The_Gay_Charlie

    I'll wait for the $5 bin in a couple of weeks

  • royal griffin

    Are there dialogue changes for guards in the Skyrim SE?

  • Tyron race card Woodley

    This brings back so many memories </33

  • funnybone96

    Pc looks clearer (the original)

  • Retierashia

    Damn, so many people hating so hard on ESS: SE/Remastered.
