100 dragons vs. 1000 Imperial Archers in 4K resolution is just another perk of the remaster.

Skyrim has had one heck of an overhaul for the Special Edition, including a host of subtle changes you may not have even noticed.

YouTuber Cosmic Contrarian is giving the Special Edition a test drive in the first of a whole series of epic battles.

Talking to Kotaku he said, “I created this battle in Skyrim Special Edition, it really has improved performance a lot over the original, this was impossible in original Skyrim on such a scale.”

It looks absolutely fantastic.

The battle rages on for over 10 minutes but I won’t spoil it by telling you who the victor is. Give it watch if you have the time.
