How to play Skyrim: Very Special Edition on Alexa devices

  • Keegan-Michael Key plays Skyrim on an Echo, pager and fridge

In fact, it's been a running joke for some years now that Skyrim is the cockroach of the games industry, with Bethesda porting it to every platform it possibly can, including, most recently, a Special Edition re-release on Nintendo Switch and a version built for VR.

After tapping the button say "Alexa, Play Skyrim" and the game begins. Turns out the joke was on them: Skyrim Very Special Edition truly does exist and is available to "play" as long as you own a device that can use Alexa.

While you might have to wait on the smart fridge, those looking to experience Skyrim Very Special Edition can actually do so by installing this Alexa skill.

The video clip starts off with comedian Keegan-Michael Key casually sitting on a couch, pondering over which device to play by gesturing toward console controllers and a TV remote.

It's not clear if this is really the full game, but it's still pretty remarkable that Bethesda did it. As soon as you say "Alexa Play Skyrim" she'll give you a few quick stats about your player level and then will launch into a brief story scenario, which offers you two or three ways in which you can respond.

We'll be exploring the new Alexa Skill today and reporting back with how our adventure went. If you own an Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot, you can ask Alexa about the Skyrim skill. Specifically, the app includes the ability to "quest and explore the dungeons of Skyrim", "master your weapons, spells and shouts", and you can even "guard your knees against arrows".
