    So if i buy the dlc on steam i will get it free when it releases?

    EDIT: "Update: Please note that if you do not complete your Skyrim + all DLC bundle until October 28th, your free upgrade to Skyrim Special Edition may take up to 36 hours to apply to your account. "

    So I take that as a yes.
    FYI you can get the steam version for like $11 :wink:

    Have they implemented anything different that wasn't in the original version or is it just updated graphics and smoother gameplay?

      I believe that the remastered is just updated graphics and smoother gameplay. Still worth it IMO.

      For PC versions no.. but for console versions you're allowed to use the buggy mod system that Fallout 4 has.
