The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an open-world RPG and the fifth main installment in The Elder Scrolls series. 

Skyrim's main story revolves around the player character and their effort to defeat Alduin the World-Eater, a dragon who is prophesied to destroy the world. Play as you wish in this epic power fantasy, delve deep dungeons and slay dragons across the fractured land of Skyrim, and uncover the mysteries of Alduin the World-Eater before it's too late.

 

Featuring multiple DLC packs, along with two major re-releases of the game over the past ten years, the Special Edition, in particular, collects all the DLC together with graphical improvements, and even versions on the Nintendo Switch, for VR, and Alexa systems, Skyrim is arguably one of the most popular and enduring games in the past decade. Coupled with an extensive modding community, Skyrim is the Elder Scrolls game to play.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is available on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PSVR, Steam VR, and Alexa.
