Rumor: The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Remaster In Development For PS4/XBO With DLC and Mod Support


The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is one of the most successful first person RPG from Bethesda Softworks. It has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide making it one of the best selling game for Bethesda Softworks. It also received universal critical acclaim from critics and has won numerous game of the year awards.

While there has been a lot of demand for a proper remaster of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, nothing official has come out of it yet. Now we appear to have a confirmation through insider Shinobi and Enter the Dragon Punch, who recently leaked Dead Rising 4 information.


Shinobi first teased about the remaster in a podcast on YouTube stating that Bethesda will reveal this remaster at their E3 2016 conference. NeoGAF user Enter the Dragon Punch later confirmed that it was indeed Skyrim and he also added that this remaster will not only feature improved graphics but it will also add mod support and all the in-game DLC.

Mod support was an unknown term for console games until the release of Fallout 4 that has launched its mod support recently for the Xbox One, and will later add mod support for the PS4. Since Skyrim is well known for its user mods on PC, adding similar aspect to consoles for the remaster can definitely improve its value.

Bethesda Softworks will host their own E3 conference this year so if this rumor is true, we can expect to get an official announcement soon.

Let us know what you think about a potential Skyrim remaster in the comments below.

    Nobody has ever clarified what the mod support actually consists of in Fallout 4 or in this remaster. Is it just the lame ability to load up some mods that PC gamers have created, or do we get the real deal with a full mod editor on console to make our own mods.

    • The mods are limited to just 2 GB on consoles so they do exist, but with restrictions and need to be approved by Bethesda.
