Does Skyrim Special Edition look better than the Skyrim we played on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360? Yes. How much better? Check out the official comparison trailer above.

The trailer comes directly from Bethesda, and it shows off “all-new features like remastered art and effects, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections, volumetric god rays, and more.”

Skyrim Special Edition hits PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 28, 2016.

Skyrim Special Edition has me considering yet another journey to Tamriel.

How many times have I fired up Skyrim over the years? A lot, really. Too many to count. Every time a ridiculous new mod comes out, I boot the game. Every time I get a hankering for some massive world exploration, I boot the game.

Now I have the promise of even more graphical beauty to push me back into Skyrim, and I’m considering it once again. The mod scene will keep me on PC with this game, even though the consoles will feature a form of mods. The support there won’t be as all-encompassing as what we get on PC, so that’s what I’ll be sticking with.

What about your adventure, Dragonborn?
