How to play Skyrim for Alexa on iPhone or Android

How to play Skyrim for Alexa on iPhone or Android

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

During Bethesda's E3 show early this morning, there was a cute video starring Keegan-Michael Key about Skyrim coming to Amazon's Alexa voice assistant.

Have you given Skyrim Very Special Editon a spin? Skyrim on Alexa may actually be real.

It's not clear if this is really the full game, but it's still pretty remarkable that Bethesda did it. Actually no, at least not the Alexa version, you can actually play Skyrim.

Bethesda Softworks "For the very first time ever, take your rightful place as the Dragonborn of legend (again) and explore Skyrim using the power of your own voice.your Thu'um!"

Given Amazon has a number of games on Alexa, it's good to see them play along and create a skill. As soon as you say "Alexa Play Skyrim" she'll give you a few quick stats about your player level and then will launch into a brief story scenario, which offers you two or three ways in which you can respond. Adding to the satirical theme, the video also featured Skyrim "ports" to an Etch-a-Sketch, pager, and a smart fridge, so it was understandable that people didn't think "Skyrim: Very Special Edition" was happening. "Download the skill, change your language to US".

While playing Skyrim on any Echo or other Alexa-embedded devices you'll get to fight dragons, shout... err... shouts, "guard your knees against arrows", and "other epic things".
