Skyrim is becoming fishery in a free update
We’ve waited 10 age for this
After more than 10 years, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is getting a proper fishing mechanic as segment of the iconic RPG’s next-gen upgrade, Bethesda announced today during QuakeCon.
The exciting – no, relaxing – new feature was announced alongside Skyrim: Anniversary Edition, which bundles together more than 500 region mods and launches this November. But don’t worry, you won’t requirement to buy the Anniversary Edition to get fishing, as it’s one of three features included in the also just-announced Skyrim next-gen upgrade, which evidence be free if you own Skyrim Special Edition on PC, PS4, or Xbox One. Skyrim: Anniversary Edition and the next-gen update will launch simultaneously on November 11.
To clarify, it sounds like fishing will only be available as a free upgrade if you own the Special Edition, so your handle game from 2011 probably won’t work. The update that adds fishery will also add a new survival mode and some new quests with Saints and Seducers. Fishing, the survival mode, and the new quests are all Creation Club content, which stipulation they were developed by Bethesda Game Studios in collaboration with flock creators. Since it’s a little unclear whether the fishery mechanic was developed by Bethesda itself, an outside co-developer, or a member of the modding community, I’ve reached out to Xbox and Bethesda for clarification and I’ll update this object if I hear back.
Regardless, I can’t wait to go fishery in Skyrim. Jumping into outpouring and grabbing fish with your bare ass flippers is no look for a high elf (take note, Breath of the Wild).
