Bethesda has announced that Skyrim Special Edition has gone gold and accompanied the announcement with the PC system requirements. The Skyrim Special Edition brings mod support on consoles, remastered art and effects, volumetric lighting (“God Rays”), dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections and new snow and water shaders.

Here’s the requirements:


  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
  • Intel i5-750/AMD Phenom II X4-945.
  • 8GB of ram.
  • 12 GB free HDD space
  • NVIDIA GTX 470 1GB /AMD HD 7870 2GB


  • Windows 7/8.1/10 (64-bit Version)
  • Intel i5-2400/AMD FX-8320.
  • 8GB of ram.
  • 12 GB free HDD space
  • NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB /AMD R9 290 4GB

The cool lads at PC Gamer have pointed out that the requirements are actually higher this time around for Skyrim Special Edition as the original version only required 2.0 GHz dual core CPU, 2GB RAM, and a DX9.0c-compliant video card with 512MB of RAM. This is kind of expected with the new upgrades.

Skyrim Special Edition launches on October 28th, 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PS4. It will also support 4K natively on PS4 Pro.
