How much you can get out of Skyrim and all its add-ons over one weekend? Even if you play 24 hours a day, there will still be a lot of ground left untouched, because the game is just that huge. Still, it is worth trying, because The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition is free to play this weekend on Steam and Xbox One – the latter requires Xbox Live Gold membership.
And if you decide that you want to continue the adventure beyond this Sunday, you can currently purchase the game at a 50% discount on Steam, for $19.99 until September 19. Skyrim is also on sale for Xbox – this version costs $30 instead of $59.99 until September 18.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition is a collective release of both the original game and all three of its add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn, plus enhanced visuals. Together they offer over a hundred of hours of gameplay across a vast open fantasy world. If you haven’t done this yet, it’s definitely worth giving it a try.
