What happens If I buy skyrim now ?
Hello. I want to know that I've already finished skyrim but it was not original. Now, I want to buy legendary edition on steam but I have one problem. What will happen my old character? I mean, can I still use my old save file when I bought the game?

All the LEGENDARY EDITION does is gives you the 3 DLC'S- nothing more, nothing less

i would just buy the DLCS not ledendary, besides you acn just get mods to fill the boringness of not doing anything

What do you mean 'it was not original'? If you just mean you already own the base game, the Legendary Edition can be worth buying in a sale, but if it costs more than just buying all three DLCs, do that. Either way, you can keep playing with your current save.

If you mean that the copy you had was, erm, not legitimately obtained, I would probably recommend starting a new character, because goodness knows what a shonky copy will have done to your saves.

Hmm first thanks for all comments and help. I downloanded the game first and also all DLC's, I mean that with 'It was not original'' But If i can play with old save it's not problem. I hope so :D But thanks all of you :D

I won't bother to reprimand you for pirating and then posting about it here but....please buy the game in either case since you did seem to enjoy it.

Activating a DLC in Skyrim is done in the same way as activating a mod off of the Workshop and works similarly. You shouldn't have any problems with adding new content to a save (at least for official DLC; I can't guarantee that every mod you download will work perfectly), although disabling that content after saving with it enabled will likely make that save unplayable until the content is reenabled.

As always with PC games like this I recommend saving in multiple slots so that you can revert to a previous save if something gets broken.

Let me get this straight. You just admitted to pirating Skyrim on the Skyrim forum in Steam and wanted to know if you can transfer the save file from the priated copy of the game?
WDSL Apr 16 @ 1:23pm 
Yes. But it doesn't matter no more because I've just bought it and my old save works.

To be honest, I don't think that asking this question could be wrong because skyrim doesn't belong to Steam and also I didn't use it on steam while I was playing pirate version... Any case I'm playing on steam and it's original.

LOL, you still broke the law and as Steam is Skyrim's DRM, "They" (Steam, Valve, and/or Beth) just might have something to say about it. Might be wise to use the trash can in top left hand corner of your thread header. (and do some research into this topic, you're due for a rude awakening.) Oh, and check the Forum's "Rules and Regs" while you're at it. (just saying.)

But It's not only for steam. Even I didn't play the game on this new laptop -.-'' It was 2 years early and I didn't use to play games on steam -.-'' After installing steam I've never play pirate game...

@grimus: he finished the game and still wanna buy it caus he enjoyed much, so they made no minus-cash.

If you buy Skyrim now, you will be giving money to Gabe Newell, thus feeling better about yourself because you gave your money to a charitable foundation.
