How To Play Skyrim Alexa Without An Alexa

How To Play Skyrim Alexa Without An Alexa

Posted by Aaron on 11th Jun 2018

In case you didn’t see or hear the news, Bethesda Games has taken the Skyrim on everything meme to heart. Yesterday at E3, they jokingly unveiled Skyrim: Very Special Edition for the Amazon Alexa.

Everybody got a good laugh from the video package, but Bethesda are the ones having the last laugh because it is 100% REAL and the best part is you don’t even need an Alexa to play!

For those of us without our own 2001-esque digital assistant all you need to do is follow these three simple steps and then you are off adventuring in the realm of Skyrim, yet again, on your either phone or tablet or both!

  • Install the Amazon app for either iOS or Android and then enable the Skyrim Alexa Skill on your Amazon account.
  • Tap the Alexa icon (For iOS users this is in the top right corner of the screen and on Android app it’s at the bottom of the screen).
  • Simply say "Alexa, open Skyrim".

Enjoy!
