Skyrim: Special Edition Announced For Samsung Smart Refrigerators And Alexa

Skyrim: Special Edition Announced For Samsung Smart Refrigerators And Alexa”

E3 2018 coverage at Giant Bomb: Still more commentary and news from E3, from our colleagues at Giant Bomb.

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

According to Polygon, though, you don't event an Alexa-enabled device to play the game.

I'm not sure if this is a full-fledged game or just a really elaborate joke, but there is bound to be someone that will see this through to the end. It's actually real, albeit in a very tongue-in-cheek way. All you need to do is download the app, click the Alexa icon while inside and tell her, "Alexa, open Skyrim". And yes, some people love it so much they'll pretend that's what it is. Skyrim: Very Special Edition is basically a choose your own adventure game set in Skyrim. Yet as the actor interacted with his Alexa, having the device describe its situation and ask questions from playing Skyrim, what I saw wasn't a joke but a way to make single-player role-playing games work on a smart assistant. 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".

Unfortunately, it looks as if the skill is now only available in the United States version of the Amazon Alexa Skills store.
