The Skyrim Anniversary Edition has arrived. Those who own the Skyrim Special Edition can get some free gifts, and those who are willing to buy the new version can get more than 500 shares of extra gifts. But there is an added benefit, which is also a long-standing meme-the famous (and controversial at the time) horse armor from Oblivion can be provided to Skyrim for free through the Creation Club.
If you don’t understand why Oblivion’s vest is worthwhile, we can give you a quick idea. As early as 2006, Bethesda provided an advanced vest for “The Elder Scrolls 4: Annihilation”, which seemed ridiculous at the time. Who will pay $2.50 for cosmetics in a single player game? Why would Bethesda think someone would do this? The idea was ridiculous, and “vest” quickly became a generic term for any developer who sold premium add-ons for a few extra dollars.
Needless to say, Vest won. Advanced add-ons are very common nowadays, and you can thank Bethesda for leading microtransactions to become a part of our lives through its beautiful horse outfits.
Now, on the 10th anniversary of Skyrim, many of us have paid Bethesda for the new version of Skyrim for the third or fourth time. This time, at least, the vest is free.
If you want to use it for your horse, here is how to catch it. In the menu when you start the game, click Creation Club. You will see the armor in the “Featured” tab. Click on it (there are wizard and steel versions), and then click download.
After downloading, Skyrim will need to be restarted, after which you can visit any stable and talk to people selling horses outside. In the dialogue options, there will be a new line that you can click on, which says that you want to put armor on your horse. Choose the version you want and pay 500 septim, bingo, your horse is now a 2006 meme.
it Do It actually looks pretty cool:
