The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition is one of the year’s biggest releases. Despite the fact it’s a re-release of a five-year-old game, it’s been generating plenty of buzz since having been revealed by Bethesda back at E3 2016.
While Bethesda has held back on sending out review copies of it as well as Dishonored 2, I’m certain that people are going to be flocking to stores to jump back into the Elder Scrolls universe when it was at its absolute best.
The problem, as is the case with any big game release, is that it hits on Friday, October 28 around the world. That’s a standard work and school day, meaning for many of us, we’ll have to wait until the end of the day to get things going on our adventure.
Fortunately, Bethesda has had a plan up its sleeve all along: the illusive doctor’s note.
Bethesda’s VP of marketing, Pete Hines, the cheeky little bugger that he is, has created a doctor’s note from Dr. Agon Born (which translates to Dragonborn, the third add-on for Skyrim, but, shh, don’t tell anyone).
