I don't think they would give any free update(s) in the near future. (looking at the recent Skyrim Anniversary announcement) 

What was in that announcement that made you feel that way 

 

They have upgraded ESO & now Skyrim 

 

Fallout 76 also maybe as it’s a Live service game (not sure) 

It only makes sense to upgrade FO4 too

It's confusing, but it seems like you need to be an owner of the Special Edition for the free next gen update. 

 

 

 

 

 

"The Anniversary Edition of the game won’t be offered to current Special Editions owners for free. Instead, a different, next-gen enhanced version of the game will be given to current and future Special Edition owners for free. Meanwhile, folks will be able to pay to upgrade their Special Editions to Anniversary Edition for a price that hasn’t been revealed yet. Is this confusing and weird? Yup!"

Lol so Anniversary Goodies are a paid upgrade & the last gen version is getting a soft upgrade for free ?!? 

 

It’s surprisingly absent from discussions & one would expect that it’s a free upgrade all together since internet is only bothered about Sony games 

 

But anyway even the soft upgrade is free for GP users 

But Sony just baffles with its moves of not giving upgrades to their subscribers

What about those who don't own the special edition? Upgrade would be paid?

Can’t say about PC but SE was the only version available on PS4/XBone for which this upgrade is being offered 

 

Base PS360 version were never given free upgrades back then so obviously they are not part of any of this now

"Finally, we have some exciting announcements for the game itself. Current and future owners of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition on any platform including Xbox Game Pass Subscribers will receive access to three free pieces of Creation Club content: Fishing, Survival Mode and even new quests with Saints and Seducers. Additionally, Skyrim Special Edition owners on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S, as well as Xbox Game Pass subscribers on Xbox Series X|S will receive a free upgrade to an enhanced version on November 11 for their respective PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S systems!

 

We’re also excited to announce the most definitive version of Skyrim to date: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition. The Anniversary Edition includes Skyrim Special Edition and 74 creations, all 48 currently available and 26 to be released. These showcase over 500+ individual elements such as quests, items, armor, houses, etc.

 

Existing owners of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Xbox Game Pass subscribers will also receive the option to purchase an Anniversary Edition upgrade for their Special Edition version of the game to gain access to all the additional content found in the Anniversary Edition."

As @AnK mentioned, no mention of PC/PS3/xbox 360 gamers in the post. 

 

 

My take on this 👇

 

Atleast x360 owners of Skyrim (now with xss/xsx, non GP subs) should be given the free next gen update as well due to xsx being fully BC.

That’s kinda pointless to expect 

as they weren’t given upgrade to XBone version to begin with 

 

Why expect them to get SX/S version straight away 

 

What’s gone is gone

Wait a minute

 

So you expect free upgrades of a game from 2 generation ago and but happy to pay for upgrades for a game that released last year.

Skyrim has been milked so many times that it has given me lactose intolerance. 

 

Ps- Sony has already given a free upgrade patch for GoT which runs via BC( have said this n number of times). 

 

The paid update comes with a lot more (new story, new ps5 only features, better optimisation etc)

Basically Bethesda is giving out the upgraded version for XSX/XSS, PS5 (and probably PC) for free. This is likely optimized native ports for these platforms. Also bundling in 3 specific pieces of content from the creation club for free.

 

Seems like there are over 100 total pieces of content and you have to pay the upgrade fee only if you want the extra content.

 

How is this similar to what Sony did with GoT where they locked resolution bump and haptics behind a 10$ paywall? If there are features exclusive to XSX/XSS and PS5 behind a paywall (like haptics or improved frame rate/resolution) then the argument is comparable.

Who said the argument needs to be comparable? It just needs to be an argument. :P
