Bethesda's Skyrim: Very Special Edition Jokes About An Amazon Alexa Port

Skyrim Alexa

Skyrim has come to the Amazon Alexa, in the form of Skyrim Very Special Edition - this is not a joke, even though Bethesda treated it like one in its press conference.

According to Polygon, though, you don't event an Alexa-enabled device to play the game.

It's not clear if this is really the full game, but it's still pretty remarkable that Bethesda did it.

Check back throughout the week for more news and updates on everything happening at E3 2018. Clearly Skyrim: Very Special Edition is far, far too lovely for this ugly world of ours.

"Bethesda Game Studios is proud to present Skyrim. for Alexa".


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".

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.

Skyrim: Very Special Edition is available now on Amazon Alexa. And yes, some people love it so much they'll pretend that's what it is.

You can play the app by tapping Alexa's circular icon on any Amazon-installed device and saying "Alexa, open Skyrim".

Amazon definitely isn't taking this too seriously. and for good reason.
