Bethesda has once again defended the price of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition, arguing that the amount of content justifies its pricing.

Bethesda marketing boss Pete Hines continues to answer questions about the game on Twitter, sharing new information about pre-loading and language options, on top of the talk about its price.

One fan said that while they're aware of the price, they're not so sure about the game's value.

Hines reeled off everything that's included in the Special Edition, before saying, "If you don't want that, don't buy it." "A game with all DLC and mod support and updated graphics running on two new consoles. If you don't want that, don't buy it," reads the full tweet.

Another fan asked whether or not the game would be available in Spanish, to which Hines replied: "It'll be available in all the same languages as the original Skyrim."

With that in mind, Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition will be available in Spanish, as well as English, French, Italian and German.

Hines also revealed when fans would be able to pre-load the game ahead of launch on Xbox One and PS4.

"Yes. Should be up on XBL (and PSN) in the next few weeks, or so I'm told." Elsewhere, Hines addressed rumours of a potential delay on PS4.

Some fans are worried that delays to PS3 Skyrim DLC and the lack of Fallout 4 mods on PS4 would lead to similar things happening with the Special Edition.

With someone pointing out that Bethesda's track record on PlayStation hasn't been great, Hines replied: "PC mods on a console have never been done before. It comes with challenges." Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition will be released on October 28 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

In addition to updated graphics, the PS4 and Xbox one remaster features all post-release DLC, including Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn.

PC users with a copy of Skyrim and all three DLC packs will be able to download the Special Edition for free. the elder scrolls online gold
