Well, that sure is pretty.

Watch on YouTube

Bethesda has released a video for Skryim Special Edition, comparing the lovely differences between last-gen and current-gen consoles.

Not that the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions were ugly by any means. It just looks better. You will recognize some clips in the video if you watched the trailer released last week which showed how mods can be incorporated.

Of course, there isn’t a comparison for PC shown in that video, because, well, PC. Yeah, I totally went there.

Should probably clarify that before I get flamed to hell and back: I own Skyrim on Xbox 360 and also on PC through Steam.

I also own The Elder Scrolls Anthology, so technically I have purchased Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim three times each: twice for PC and once for Xbox consoles. You’re welcome, Bethesda.

Anyway, enjoy that lovely trailer.

Skyrim: Special Edition will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One October 28.
