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

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

One person, the Dungeon Master (or Game Master if it's not D&D), tells the story, setting up situations for their players as they take on the story. It was pretty amusing, partly because everyone loves to joke about Bethesda continuing to find new platforms to bring Skyrim to and new ways to re-release the seven-year old game.

If that headline has confused you then let's be very clear, this is a joke by Bethesda, but it's rather amusing.

During the company's E3 keynote Sunday, Bethesda made light of their constant porting of the iconic game by presenting the audience with a humorous trailer, touting the benefits of a new Skyrim Very Special Edition, made just for your favorite in-home virtual assistant. It offered a two minute skit starring Keegan-Michael Key as he played the game on the Amazon Alexa. But now it is actually something you can "play" on your Alexa.

All users have to do to partake in the adventure is say, "Play Skyrim".

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.

Bethesda Softworks "For the very first time ever, take your rightful place as the Dragonborn of legend (again) and explore Skyrim using the power of your own voice.your Thu'um!" "Download the skill, change your language to US". Skyrim on Alexa is actually real and can be played on your smart devices right now.
