Have you had enough of Skyrim? If you’re like most of the world, you can’t get enough of that game. First you could play it on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and the PC. Then you could buy it for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Recently, the title came to the Nintendo Switch and VR devices. If you’re like me, you own Skyrim on all of those platforms. But soon, you will be able to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in real life. Kinda
Introducing Skyrim – Very Special Edition. Unlike other versions of the game, you won’t need a controller. You won’t even need a console. Skyrim – Very Special Edition is a game you can play with your Amazon Echo.
Skyrim – Very Special Edition is the first of its kind: a completely audio-based Elder Scrolls game. Think of it as a single-player Dungeons & Dragons session where Alexa serves as the dungeon master. Want to rob a store blind? Say, “Alexa, I’m going to rob this store.” Want to make sure you don’t get caught? First say, “Alexa, I put a bucket over the store owner’s head.” You can do everything you ever could want in an Elder Scrolls game , but now you have to say you want to do it and imagine it all in your head.
As Skyrim – Very Special Edition is completely audio-based, it is not recommended for anyone with hearing problems, especially if they’re deaf. While Bethesda has not announced how much the game will cost or when it will release, it is proud to reveal it will also release on Motorola pagers, Samsung smart refrigerators, and Etch a Sketches. Well, technically Skyrim – Very Special Edition won’t come to any of those platforms, because it won’t come to any platforms. It’s just a joke. A clever, stupid, awesome joke I so desperately want to be real. And playable on a Commodore 64.
Ok, I totally did not see this coming, but Skyrim – Very Special Edition is real. It’s very real, and we have proof.
But don’t just take these peoples’ words for it. I own an Echo Dot and tried it myself. It works.
