- Physical copies of the Anniversary Edition contain a disc with the Special Edition and a redeemable code to download the Anniversary Upgrade.
- Downloading the Anniversary Upgrade changes the tint of the Imperial Dragon emblem on the main menu from silver to gold.
- In addition to the new Creations, many already-released Creations received updates to coincide with the Anniversary Edition's release. The focus of most of these updates was to remove the high number of quests that would automatically be added to your journal upon leaving Helgen (or upon installation for existing saves). As a result, much of the new content can be discovered organically through gameplay.
