Skyrim Very Special Edition Is Real and You Can Download It Now

11 June 2018

Some of Bethesda's silly E3 2018 moments may have been met with dead air from the audience, but there's no denying that everyone loved the Skyrim: Very Special Edition skit.

"Now, Skyrim looks to the future for its ultimate version", the announcer said in the video. If you've ever wanted to play Elder Scrolls V through Alexa, you can actually download a free copy of Skyrim Very Special Edition now on Amazon.

But after the announcement, it looks like Bethesda had the last laugh.

The description for the app details that it is "the version of Skyrim you never saw coming" and that it has "finally arrived on the platform you never asked for".

I'm not sure if this is a full-fledged game or just a really elaborate joke, but there is bound to be someone that will see this through to the end.

It turns out, though, Skyrim: Very Special Edition is a very real thing.

The listing encourages you to "explore Skyrim using the power of your own voice", and presumably works just as it did in the trailer - as a choose-your-own adventure you can enjoy by talking to yourself in your living room. But now it is actually something you can "play" on your Alexa.

Once the Skill is linked to your device, you then say "Alexa, Open Skyrim" and the quest starts.

Upon starting, the app warns that it may contain mature content not suitable for all audiences.
