Has your imagination ever sent you to a world of dragons, clashing steel, and beautiful landscapes? It no longer has to be in your imagination, as Skyrim: Remastered has arrived!
What is Skyrim?
Skyrim is a fictional world set in an era of war. You play as a prisoner, caught by the Imperial Guard, who currently rule over Skyrim. You’re mistaken as a rebel Stormcloak, who currently want to drive out Imperial influence over Skyrim. The story ensues as you are taken to your execution, in which Alduin, a dragon bent on destroying worlds attacks you the stronghold in which you are in. You escape with either the Imperials or Stormcloaks, which can determine which faction you join. And after you escape? You are given an entire world to explore, and do what you see fit. Want to explore the deepest of dungeons and darkest of caves? Skyrim has countless dungeons and caves which have the shiniest of loot, and the deadliest of enemies. The story continues as you kill a dragon, and absorb its soul, finding out you’re an ancient warrior called the Dragonborn that is said to bring about peace by truly killing dragons by absorbing its soul. You are then given the power of the Voice, which enables you to speak in the dragon tongue, casting shouts which enable effects such as knocking back your enemies, or lighting them on fire. A group of monks known as the Greybeards, who have the power to use the voice, summon you to their monastery , where they teach you the Way of The Voice. From there, your journey to kill Alduin ensues. Of course, you can decide whether or not you want to do missions, as a plethora of side missions await you. Interested in fighting?

Why buy Skyrim Remastered?
You might already know that the original Skyrim came out on November 11, 2011. So why buy the same game and spend more money? Skyrim: Remastered has something Skyrim doesn’t. Skyrim: Remastered comes out in the new generation, which means the graphics and even more content are supported by the powerful CPU (Central Processing Unit) and GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).
Skyrim: Remastered is an even better game, on the old game. Skyrim: Remastered will go down as a classic, and is probably a must buy for anyone who loves fantasy action, and lush, beautiful environments. Many gaming networks rate such as IGN, Game Informer, etc… rate Skyrim with a good score. IGN rates it with a 8/10, which is a truly deserved honor.
