Pixel wizards Digital Foundry have put The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim – Anniversary Edition through its paces on PS5 and Xbox Series X, with a detailed performance test revealing the fantasy-RPG performs slightly better on Sony’s console.
For starters, the PS5 version of Skyrim Anniversary Edition runs at a fixed 4K resolution of 3840×2160, whereas the Xbox Series X edition runs at dynamic 4K. In addition, the PS5 version of Skyrim Anniversary Edition also boasts slightly faster load times, which is a bonus.
The Elder Scrolls 5 Skyrim – Anniversary Edition is now available on PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S. You can read our full review here. The original version of the game launched back in November 2011 for PS3, PC, and Xbox 360.
Bethesda is currently developing The Elder Scrolls 6, although sadly the acquisition of ZeniMax Media at the hands of Microsoft means that the game will not be coming to PlayStation formats.
