Skyrim Special Edition PC specs unveiled, and they aren't bad at all

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition has just gone gold and the development team has decided togive PC players a heads up on just what their systems need to be running in orderto get a solid gameplay experience  The good news is that most foks won;t need an upgrade.

Both minmum and recommended setups require 64-bit versions of Windows 7, 8.1 or10, 8 GB of RAM and 12 GB of hard drive space. As for procesor and video card: 


  • Intel i5-750/AMD Phenom II X4-945.
  • NVIDIA GTX 470 1GB /AMD HD 7870 2GB


  • Intel i5-2400/AMD FX-8320
  • NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB /AMD R9 290 4GB

If you are after the console versions, North American players should expect to have 20 GB of space free on PS4 to instal the game, and 17 GB on Xbox One. 

The game, which will be released on October 28, will have remastered art and effects, volumetric lighting, dynamic depth of field, screen-space relections, and new snow and water shaders. The biggest draw, however, should be full mod support on consoles, which until recently, only meant Xbox One. The good news is that Sony and Betehsda.were able to come to an agreement last week that will allow mod support on PS4.
