Skyrim For Alexa Is A Real Game Available Now

If you saw the trailer for Skyrim: Very Special Edition during Bethesda's E3 conference you'd be forgiven for thinking it wasn't one of their real E3 2018 games, as comic actor Keegan-Michael Key yells "FUS-RO-DAH!" with increasing frustration at his Alexa assistant before instructing it to consume all the cheese wheels. If you don't have an Echo speaker, you can install the Alexa app on your phone and play Skyrim right on your device.

Fans have since uploaded videos of them playing "Skyrim: Very Special Edition".

It's becoming a bit of a running gag that Bethesda will put Skyrim on anything as it continues to milk the popular game for all it's worth.

"Bethesda Game Studios is proud to present Skyrim. for Alexa".

"For the very first time ever, take your rightful place as the Dragonborn of legend (again) and explore Skyrim using the power of your own voice...your Thu'um!"

The Skyrim Very Special Edition will be available on Amazon Alexa, the Etch-a-sketch, Motorola pagers (specific models to be determined), and Samsung smart refrigerators, which will bring a whole new level of depth to those trips to the Nordic north. "Download the skill, change your language to US".

You can play the app by tapping Alexa's circular icon on any Amazon-installed device and saying "Alexa, open Skyrim".
