Get a longer look at Skyrim: Special Edition in action

Get an eyeful of god rays

Bethesda Game Studios' remaster of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim hits PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One next week, but even with that looming release date, we haven't seem too much from Skyrim Special Edition. Today, thankfully, we get another minute and change of in-game footage, showing how Skyrim runs on modern hardware.

Skyrim Special Edition promises remastered art and effects, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, volumetric god rays and other graphical enhancements, Bethesda says, many of which you can see in the gameplay trailer above.

The Elder Scrolls fans who plan on playing Skyrim Special Edition on PC can check out the remaster's system requirements here. Players on PC who already own the original game and all of its expansions (or Skyrim Legendary Edition) will get the Special Edition upgrade for free.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition will be released Oct. 28.
