Bethesda’s Vice president, Pete Hines has given some insight on the upcoming remaster of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In an interview with IGN, Hines said the devs are aiming to make the remaster as “next-gen and appropriate for these consoles as possible.”
This interview comes from the E3 announcement that Skyrim would be coming to PS4 and Xbox One on October 28th with updated visuals, a video of which can be seen below. Some of the effects that will be used are volumetric god rays, screen-space reflections and new snow shaders that make for a very pretty looking game.
While Hines hasn’t mentioned any specifics about what will be improved in the new version, he has said that a range of updates can be expected and it has already been said that the remaster will support mods on console, much like Fallout 4 has before it. Below is the full quote on the subject:
“We haven’t gotten into the full, ‘Here’s all the things we’re doing.’ But the basic idea is, in all the ways possible we’re trying to improve it and make it as next-gen and appropriate for these consoles as possible,”
