Skyrim has a hidden quest most of us missed for over 10 years

Skyrim has a hidden quest most of us missed for over 10 years

Skyrim is the gift that keeps giving

Just when you think you might be done with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, BAM, another quest comes along and you’re off on another epic adventure.

Released in 2011 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, it’s fair to say that Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is one of the most popular video games of all time. Since its release, Bethesda has launched Skyrim on every console generation and as I write this article, the popular fantasy RPG has had a concurrent player peak of over 25,000 in the last 24 hours, according to SteamDB.

Yet, even to this day, players are finding new secrets in the land of Tamriel, well over a decade since the initial release of Skyrim, such as the hidden quest that is the topic of today’s discussion. “If someone came to you and claimed they 100% completed Skyrim, what obscure quests do you think they might have forgotten?” asked Redditor IRuinYourPrompt.

“‘The East Empire Company’ quest given by the guard at the docks is one I'm sure gets overlooked,” suggested Gloomy-Helicopter113. “I didn’t know this quest existed for a full decade,” replied Goldman250.

“I only experienced it after getting the Anniversary upgrade. I looked everywhere trying to find new stuff that got added and stumbled across that quest and absolutely assumed it was Creation Club content because it feels so strange,” said Unlost_maniac.

“To be honest, it took several hundred hours before I realised there were docks at Windhelm. I just went straight into the city for years,” exclaimed MissKatmandu. “I loved this quest, I died a couple of times escaping through the bombardment on my way out but that just makes it more fun,” said hbomberman.

I wouldn't be surprised if ten years from now, players are still sharing secrets and discoveries found in Skyrim. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is out now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
