This is a list of the official add-ons, downloadable content created or officially endorsed by Bethesda Softworks for Skyrim. Five add-ons have been released for Skyrim, with two free add-ons exclusive to the PC version of the game. The Creation Club provides additional official content for Skyrim Special Edition, created by both Bethesda and external developers. The Nintendo Switch version of the game features exclusive content that is unlocked in-game through the use of amiibo.
Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn are included as part of the Legendary Edition compilation and Special Edition. Neither of the free add-ons, Fall of the Space Core, Vol 1 and the High Resolution Texture Pack, are available for Special Edition. The latter add-on is made redundant for this release however, as Special Edition uses high-resolution textures in place of the original assets. The Anniversary Edition includes all three DLCs and all Creation Club content.
||High Resolution Texture Pack||
||Experience The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as you've never seen it before with the Skyrim High-Resolution Texture Pack.|
|Fall of the Space Core, Vol 1||
||To celebrate the opening of the Steam Workshop for Skyrim, Valve and Bethesda have teamed up to bring you the Portal 2 Space Core mod, which will let the aggressively space-centric little robot tag along on your adventures in Tamriel.|
||The Vampire Lord Harkon has returned to power. By using the Elder Scrolls, he seeks to do the unthinkable - to end the sun itself. Will you join the ancient order of the Dawnguard and stop him? Or will you become a Vampire Lord yourself? Featuring an all new faction questline and locations, the ultimate choice will be yours.|
||With this official add-on to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, you can purchase land and build your own home from the ground up - from a simple one-room cottage to a sprawling compound complete with an armory, alchemy laboratory, stable, garden, and more. Use all-new tools like the drafting table and carpenter's workbench to transform quarried stone, clay, and sawn logs into structures and furnishings. Even transform your house into a home by adopting children.|
||Journey off the coast of Morrowind, to the island of Solstheim. Encounter new towns, dungeons, and quests, as you traverse the ash wastes and glacial valleys of this new land. Become more powerful with shouts that bend the will of your enemies and even tame dragons. Your fate, and the fate of Solstheim, hangs in the balance as you face off against your deadliest adversary – the first Dragonborn.|
Creation Club is an in-game microtransactional store for Skyrim Special Edition. It sells a virtual currency called Creation Club Credits which can be used to purchase unique add-ons called Creations. Each Creation is official Bethesda content, developed with third party developers and contracted mod authors. As official content, Creations do not disable achievement acquisition.
The service entered beta on September 28, 2017 and officially launched on October 4, 2017. It is not available on Skyrim VR.
All 74 Creations are included in the Anniversary Edition. The Special Edition and Switch users also receive free access to four Creations: Fishing, Rare Curios, Survival Mode, and Saints & Seducers. Several other discounted Creations are offered for free either on a permanent or temporary basis. On Switch, the Anniversary Upgrade with all the Creations is available, but not the Creation Club itself.
