E3 2016 - Bethesda has officially confirmed the Skyrim: Special Edition remaster on PS4 and Xbox One with full mod support.

Soon console gamers will get an upgraded port of Skyrim with the amazing ability to utilize mods--and as we all know, Skyrim with mods is just absolutely incredible. New graphical upgrades include volumetric godrays, amazing new art renders and textures, dramatically improved draw distance and dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, and new snow shaders.

As a huge fan of Skyrim and its massive assortment of mods, I can't wait until this remaster hits. Sure it's no fun having to re-buy games we already know, but mods add a completely new dimension to the game. It's like having access to an infinite amount of DLC.

The Skyrim: Special Edition is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on October 28, 2016.
