Skyrim Special Edition is free this weekend on Xbox and Steam

Playing for free is a Fus-Ro-DUH moment

You're going to be able to play the game for free via Steam or Xbox One all weekend. The Special Edition includes the critically acclaimed game and add-ons with all-new features like remastered art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, and more. The only thing you should do is to click on "Play Game" button on the Steam page, where you can find more information about the edition. So the game will cost you $20 instead of $40. Once the free price tag goes away, the game will be on sale for 50 percent off retail price! The sale will be held until September 18 for Steam and Sept 19 for Xbox One. For Xbox players, their free trial lasts until 11:59pm PT on Sunday.

If you are into video games at all, especially PC gaming, mods have become a must-have for every game. You don't have to worry about starting over, either; the saved data from the free version will carry over to the version that you buy. "Skyrim: Special Edition" will reportedly be around 12 GB on PC and 16.36 GB on Xbox One.


If you play the free-to-play version this weekend on Steam, all of the achievements and progress that you have made will automatically be rolled into the purchased version. It first appeared back in 2011 on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Considering how big the world is in this game, that download size is not too bad.
