Skyrim Premium Edition Planned for Europe

Skyrim Premium Edition Planned for Europe

No release planned for North America

Written by Dave Horobin (DaveKinetic) on 29 October 12 at 22:52

Earlier today, Amazon's German website listed a new "Premium Edition" version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for €60, which Behesda have revealed to Joystiq will "only [be] available in certain territories in Europe", namely Germany, UK and Benelux.

The pack will include a copy of the game, world map, T-shirt, postcards, novel and a bonus disc containing special features, but doesn't appear to include any of the game's previously released DLC packs.

At the moment there is very little concrete news from Bethesda, but you can be sure, once we hear solid word of the Premium Edition's exact contents and release date, we'll let you know.

Is there going to be any additional DLC for the game? I found Dawnguard and the create your own home pack to be very disappointing....

The version for the diehard Skyrim fan that hasn't bought it yet? Not likely.

Should this have came out a year ago? Most likely.

I want the shirt

I was and am expecting to see more for that game, i will be shocked it there is no more quest based DLC for it.

Next content rumours are already circulating, based on code released with the recent update. A bit late I think. Should've done this closer to the release, like release day itself. Almost a year after just makes it seem somewhat pointless for those people who already have the game

well its a nice christmas cash in for bethesda for all the kids whose mammy wouldnt buy it for them last year! when companies release editions like this later for the same price as what it was new with more features it kind of makes you feel robbed battlefield 3 being a prime example

I'm surprised it doesn't contain the DLC. I bought Skyrim a couple of weeks ago (haven't started it yet) for £20 new. And I don't really have that much interest in the T-shirt and other extras, but I guess they would be of interest to the die-hard fans. But I'd have thought they'd already bought the game at launch.
Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather...

Hearthfire isn't free on the PC, it's £3.49.

As someone who paid full price for the Collectors' Edition last year, bought the strategy guide, bought the 4-disc signed soundtrack, and already owns the book that's offered in this edition, I don't see much here to entice me into spending more money.

As with all things on Xbox Live, I will only buy something if it's 50% (or more) off the original price, so I won't be getting the DLC for quite some time it seems.

I'll wait and see what happens with this and cross my fingers that it eventually comes with all of the DLC and the price hits ~£20 or ~£30, and then I'll get it on the PC.

I was thinking of the creation kit thats free

I guess you could probably do what Hearthfire does with the creation kit anyway?

PC gamers already uncovered new DLC stuff called "Dragonburn" which was called DLC2 in the files. Plus there are also files which are indicating something like Dragonmounting....But who knows if this will come for the 360 and when will it ever get released ;o

No DLC no sale I'm afraid Bethesda; fancy things are nice and all but game content is more important at the end of the day.

Also, I had to Google Benelux. I could have sat here trying to figure it out, but the lazy side of me decided to search it.

Got the game a few weeks ago. Not getting it twice.

Also, "It's a gift from the videogame god"? Who'd want that on their game case?
