Watch This New Trailer for Skyrim Special Edition, Then Go Pre-Order Skyrim Monopoly

If another player tries giving you grief about money, just put a bucket over their head and steal everything.

In one week, the skies will darken with dragon wings as Skyrim remastered – or Skyrim Special Edition if you want to get official about it – comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Skyrim remastered might also be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but that certainly won't be happening on October 28. Hang in there, Nintendo fans.

Regardless of which system you're planning to play the remaster on, you'll appreciate this new trailer from Bethesda that compares Skyrim's vanilla environs to the Special Edition's. The latter features richer sunsets, sharper details, and hopefully the absence of whichever bug used to cause my horses to randomly fall out of the sky and die screaming.

Additionally, if you have future plans to abandon all technology but you're still feeling wishy-washy about giving up video games, you might want to consider pre-ordering the Skyrim edition of Monopoly. According to the game's product page, you're able to "set up villages in Winterhold or construct huge castles in Windhelm" while warding off "Fearsome Dragons who may strike at any moment to destroy your hard earned investment."

I'm not sure how a dragon attack would happen within the context of Monopoly. Maybe it has something to do with that one sore loser who always upends the board instead of having to pay Boardwalk's nutty rental fees.

Look for Skyrim Monopoly in March 2017. And don't get suckered into paying high rent for Jorrvaskr; Farkas and Vilkas peed in every corner to mark their territory.
