Skyrim Legendary Edition rewards patience

It has been a long time coming, but gamers in the US are now able to pick up the definitive version of Skyrim that they have been waiting for since launch. After seeing multiple versions of Oblivion release down the years, many opted not to pick up Skyrim at launch, in favor of a version that came with all of the post-release DLC content.

Now, we’re pleased to say that the moment has arrived, as Bethesda has launched the Skyrim Legendary Edition in the US for $59.99. Available on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, the Legendary Edition will come with the three official expansion packs for the game, those being Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn.

Some of you may be unhappy that Bethesda are still charging full price for this, but don’t forget that Dawnguard and Dragonborn were originally $20 a piece when they first launched. You can pick up the Legendary Edition in the US now, but gamers in the UK will have to wait until this Friday, with Bethesda pricing the game at £29.99 there.

Aside from the three expansions mentioned above, the Legendary Edition also comes with the latest version of the game, which means that you are unlikely to experience the major crash and freeze problems that plagued the launch – especially when players came into contact with water.

There’s also mounted combat thrown in there, and the recent legendary skills and legendary difficulty mode added as well. If you want our advice, you may be better getting the PC version of this, as you’ll also get access to the thousands of custom mods that are available for the game – promising endless hours of extra content that won’t be available on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Are you someone who hasn’t touched Skyrim once yet? If so, let us know if you are tempted by the $60 Legendary Edition or not.
