How to play Skyrim for Alexa on iPhone or Android

Adjust Comment Print

Skyrim has come to the Amazon Alexa, in the form of Skyrim Very Special Edition - this is not a joke, even though Bethesda treated it like one in its press conference.

"Now, Skyrim looks to the future for its ultimate version", the announcer said in the video. It was pretty amusing, partly because everyone loves to joke about Bethesda continuing to find new platforms to bring Skyrim to and new ways to re-release the seven-year old game. However, if you don't have an Amazon device in your home then the good news is you can also play Skyrim: Very Special Edition on your iOS or Android device through the Amazon app.

But after the announcement, it looks like Bethesda had the last laugh. All you need to do is download the app, click the Alexa icon while inside and tell her, "Alexa, open Skyrim".

You will most likely see and discover new content on subsequent playthroughs which you might have previously missed. The best bit? The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit is releasing at the end of the month for absolutely free .

"Bethesda Game Studios is proud to present Skyrim. for Alexa", the product page on Amazon says.

While the Alexa version of Skyrim was real, I'm still pretty sure the pager and smart refrigerator versions at the end of the video are fake. I now want audio text adventure games for Alexa. But now it is actually something you can "play" on your Alexa. If you own an Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot, you can ask Alexa about the Skyrim skill.
