Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has passed $650 million in sales (NZ$852 million) with the game already collecting Game of the Year from more than a dozen outlets.
Bethesda has also announced that more than 10 million units have been shipped since the game’s release on November 11.
Digital distributor Steam has also reported that Skyrim is the fastest-selling game in the service’s history. “Bethesda’s commitment to and understanding of the PC as a gaming platform shows in the great review scores, spectacular launch, and continued high player numbers that Skyrim has received,” said Valve’s Jason Holtman. “We are delighted that Bethesda chose to use Steamworks to support Skyrim both at retail and digitally.”
Gameplanet declared that Skyrim is “without any shadow of doubt, the best RPG experience available right now.”
