Said to include all DLC, mod support, and improved graphics.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bethesda Softworks will announce a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim during their E3 2016 press conference on June 12, according to the latest internet rumors.

The rumors come from industry insider Shinobi602 and NeoGAF user Enter the Dragon Punch, both of who were part of the Kotaku-corroborated Dead Rising 4 leak earlier today.

Speaking on the latest H.A.M. Radio Podcast (59:06), Shinobi602 said, “I would expect a remaster of sorts [at Bethesda’s press conference]… for something.”

After GamePro.de went up with a story assuming it’s a Skyrim remaster, Enter the Dragon Punch added in the corresponding NeoGAF thread that “it’s real” and the remastered release will include all of the game’s downloadable content, mod support, and improved graphics.

Bethesda Softworks will host its E3 2016 press conference this Sunday, June 12 at 7:00 p.m. PDT / 10:00 p.m. EDT. Get the full E3 2016 schedule here.
