Skyrim: Legendary Edition has been spotted at Ultima, a Polish retailer and is down for a June 7 release, according to a Eurogamer Poland report. According to the retailer, the pack will contain Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn DLC packs for PS3 and Xbox 360 for around £35/$54 with the PC version said to run £29/$44. While Bethesda has not announced such a SKU yet, it would not be uncommon for the firm, as it has released bundles for its Fallout and Elder Scrolls series in the past. We’ll still send a mail and ask. Thanks, Eurogamer.
