  2. Rare Curious- This creation is a part of the “Saints and Seducers” creation. In this creation, khajiit caravans will offer new ingredients and rare imports. Eventually, by using these ingredients, players will be able to craft new weapons, positions, arrows, and poisons.
  3. Survival Mode- According to the devs, this mode will offer players an immersive challenge. This mode will have an element of reality where players will have to consider hunger and exhaustion. In fact, the devs claim this mode will give a unique experience and encourage players to play this mode.
  4. Fishing Mode- This mode features over 20 unique fishes and aquatic species across the entire water bodies of the game. Players can cook them, keep them in their home’s aquariums and even display them as trophies. Also, it includes fishing-related quests.

Skyrim: Anniversary Edition will also feature all the previously released creations along with the four free creations. These features are just the tip of the iceberg, and there’s a lot of new content to experience in the game.
