E3 2018: Bethesda Goes All-In on Skyrim: Very Special Edition Joke

Everyone thought Bethesda is poking fun at itself with the Skyrim: Very Special Edition thing at its E3 2018 conference.

However, the most notable gag of all came in the form of a full trailer for Skyrim: Very Special Edition, featuring American comedian, actor, and writer Michael Key.

In a nice turn of events, you won't need to own an Alexa to give it a shot.

While the Alexa version of Skyrim was real, I'm still pretty sure the pager and smart refrigerator versions at the end of the video are fake. If you've ever wanted to play Elder Scrolls V through Alexa, you can actually download a free copy of Skyrim Very Special Edition now on Amazon. I now want audio text adventure games for Alexa.

You can play the app by tapping Alexa's circular icon on any Amazon-installed device and saying "Alexa, open Skyrim". Yes, that's right, the version of Skyrim you never saw coming has finally arrived on the platform you never asked for... But amazingly, it's an actual Alexa Skill you can enable now, allowing you to "quest and explore the dungeons of Skyrim" and "walk straight up a mountain instead of going around" using only the power of your Thu'um.

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

Upon starting, the app warns that it may contain mature content not suitable for all audiences.
