During Quakecon, Bethesda announced that it would release Skyrim Anniversary Edition on Skyrim’s 10th birthday, November 11, providing an opportunity for memelords to dust off gags about its endless cycle of ports and rereleases once again. Said Anniversary Edition will feature “over 500 unique pieces of content from Creation Club”, and if you’ve already got Skyrim Special Edition you’ll be able to buy it as an upgrade. Even if you don’t buy the upgrade, Skyrim Special Edition is getting a fishing update, adding new mechanics that will let you “grab a fishing pole, do some fishing quests”.

Bethesda have now given out some more info about both the Anniversary Edition and the fishing update, as well as its other plans for the RPG’s birthday. First up, fishing isn’t the only thing existing players of Skyrim Special Edition will get, with two of the Creation Club’s paid mods joining it for free: Survival Mode (an optional difficulty modifier that adds hunger, fatigue, and cold mechanics, more diseases, plus limitations on fast travel, health regeneration, carry weight, and so on), and Saints & Seducers (a quest mod themed around the Shivering Isles, which also includes Rare Curios, a mod that brings back ingredients from Morrowind and Oblivion).
