Bethesda will soon publish a reworked version of Skyrim, to be known as Skyrim Remastered. But this remastered version of Skyrim will apparently cost $60. Yes, you read that right. $60.
This pricing has been strongly criticized by Skyrim fans, many of whom say that the game is overpriced.
A fan tweeted to Bethesda vice president Pete Hines and said that he will not purchase a remastered version for $60 just to relish its polished graphics.Hines responde, saying the remastered version is “a full game [with] all DLC and mod support and updated graphics running on two new consoles. If you don’t want that, don’t buy it.”

Many of us fans believe that $60 is the price tag for a full game and that it’s too much for a remastered version. There are many other such remastered versions of games available for less than $60, which also offer additional upgrades. With that being said, there are still many fans who are excited to play the game on PS4 and Xbox One, and might be willing to pay the full price. But we’ll have to wait and watch how much this pricing choice affects the sales.
Skyrim Remastered will be available in stores from 26th of October.
