E3 2018: Bethesda Goes All-In on Skyrim: Very Special Edition Joke

Postado Junho 11, 2018

Some of Bethesda's silly E3 2018 moments may have been met with dead air from the audience, but there's no denying that everyone loved the Skyrim: Very Special Edition skit.

It's not clear if this is really the full game, but it's still pretty remarkable that Bethesda did it.

The description for the app details that it is "the version of Skyrim you never saw coming" and that it has "finally arrived on the platform you never asked for".

Fans have since uploaded videos of them playing "Skyrim: Very Special Edition".

If you already own an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, or similar device then you can simply enable the above Skill on your account, say "Alexa, open Skyrim" and get started on your verbal questing across the lands of Tamriel. Hopefully we can avoid any arrows to the knees this time around. Adding to the satirical theme, the video also featured Skyrim "ports" to an Etch-a-Sketch, pager, and a smart fridge, so it was understandable that people didn't think "Skyrim: Very Special Edition" was happening.

Amazon definitely isn't taking this too seriously. and for good reason.
