Bethesda has just released the PC system requirements for Skyrim Special edition, letting PC gamers know exactly what hardware they require in order to run Skyrim's current generation remaster. 
 
This new version of the game will support 64-bit, remasted visuals, dynamic Depth of Field, Screen space reflections and all-new snow and water shaders. This will make the game much more visually appealing, but also much more demanding. 
 
Existing PC owners of Skyrim and all of the game's DLC on Steam will be able to upgrade to this new version for free, which is great news for existing Skyrim fans.
