Play Skyrim: Special Edition Free With Xbox Live Gold

By Kelly Packard,
Players have an opportunity to return to the Imperial Province of Skyrim in an ongoing Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days event for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. The game needs no introduction — from the launch of the original in 2011, it's sold over 30 million copies and won hundreds of awards, including from the TrueAchievements community, where it was voted Game of the Year and Best Role-Playing Game in 2011. Skyrim: Special Edition features enhanced art, effects and lighting as well as the addition of console mod support.

Throughout the event, Skyrim: Special Edition is on sale for 50% off. All progress earned during the event will be kept and able to be accessed should you purchase the full game during the event or in the future. Remember, save files making use of mods are ineligible to earn achievements, so keep any mods on a separate save from the one you're trying to earn achievements with.

The event is live now and will run until Sunday, September 10th at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
