How to play Skyrim: Very Special Edition on Alexa devices

I'll let you know how it goes.

Skyrim: Very Special Edition was the best gag so far at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), a way of Bethesda making fun of itself for its multiple ports of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

But perhaps the most intriguing launch was initially a joke: an Alexa modified version of Elder Scrolls.

Poundworld facing administration: 355 stores risk closure and 5300 jobs threatened

Every Nintendo Switch game announced at E3 so far!
The game will launch in mid- to late-2018 and fans can can pre-order it already on the Apple app store and Google Play Store . According to the E3 conference, The Elder Scrolls Blades is a first-person RPG reminiscent of The Elder Scrolls: Arena.

Skyrim is actually available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.

Keegan-Michael Key is a delight but this joke is now officially Dead. It's actually real, albeit in a very tongue-in-cheek way. If you own an Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot, you can ask Alexa about the Skyrim skill.

The listing encourages you to "explore Skyrim using the power of your own voice", and presumably works just as it did in the trailer - as a choose-your-own adventure you can enjoy by talking to yourself in your living room. Hopefully we can avoid any arrows to the knees this time around. What we saw in the Very Special Edition was quite similar to these MUDs, so much so that someone even made the comparison when I tweet that an Alexa RPG would be a good idea.
