The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim Legendary Edition bundles the three official downloadable content (DLC) packs with the already expansive world of Elder Scroll V.


Extend the adventure: Both the Dawnguard and Dragonborn packs add over 20 hours of gameplay (including side quests), while Hearthfire's additional features can keep you busy for even longer as you try to build the perfect home.

More immersive world: The expansions fall in line with the rest of the Skyrim world by expanding on lores, skills, and features. Didn't like being a werewolf in the original Skyrim? Become a blood-thirsty vampire in Dawnguard instead. Challenge another opponent with the power of the Thu'um in Dragonborn.

Be casual or play seriously: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition is designed for either straight run-throughs or pick-up-and-play mode, given its nonlinear plot and episodic dungeon quests. There's no need to commit large amounts of time, though of course you can.


Repackaged but not fixed: The Skyrim Legendary Edition is the original Skyrim with patch 1.9 bundled with the additional content. With a title like Legendary, we were hoping to see more fixes. Bugs and errors that can break the immersive experience are less frequent but still remain.

Bottom Line

The original Skyrim has won numerous awards and is renowned for its level of detail and content. With hundreds of gameplay hours, thousands of features, a vast community of online modders, and a recent price drop (Legendary Edition is going for $29.99 as of this writing), RPG fans won't want to miss out on this complete bundle.

Developer's Description

The Empire of Tamriel is on the edge. The High King of Skyrim has been murdered. Alliances form as claims to the throne are made. In the midst of this conflict, a far more dangerous, ancient evil is awakened. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons. The Legendary Edition features the latest updates and all three expansions for the game.
