This walkthrough will take you through everything you need to know, right now, about the latest Skyrim Special Edition update for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PCs.
Skyrim Special Edition 1.5.39 Update Size
If want to play Skyrim Special Edition today you’ll need to download a fairly substantial patch.
It took us about seven minutes to download the Xbox One X’s Skyrim Special Edition 1.5.39 patch over a high-speed Wi-Fi network.
If you don’t have a ton on space available on your hard drive, you might need to clear out some space to make room for the update.
If your wireless connection can be slow, it might be a good idea to plug an ethernet cord directly into your console to speed up the download.
New Creation Club Content
Bethesda’s added new content to the Creation Club including a movable campsite called Camping (300 credits), an Adventurer’s Backpack (400 credits), and a Nix-Hound (200 Credits). The Nix-Hound is a companion that can carry items and find ingredients.
