You can’t go wrong with either the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions of the Skyrim remaster.
Thanks to recent analysis from Digital Foundry, we now that both PS4 and Xbox One run the game at a 1080p resolution. On top of that, a temporal anti-aliasing solution is used, similar to the one found in Fallout 4.
Similarly, both versions offer like-for-like visuals, and as you can see above, they even stand up to the original PC version with max settings and 4xMSAA.
As you can see in the video below, both versions offer similar performance as well, delivering a locked 30fps. Digital Foundry believes the remaster even leaves some amount of unutilised power on PS4, but not enough to get it to 60fps.
Overall, the remaster is more of an enhanced PC port for current-gen consoles than anything else, looking and running much better than the original release on PS3 and Xbox 360, but that’s about it.
Skyrim Special Edition is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
