Bethesda's massive RPG Skyrim has been an incredible success, heralding a new age in the franchise and earning a plethora of accolades from nearly every gaming venue on the planet–not to mention winning a Golden Joystick for Best RPG of 2012. In light of the game's popularity and critical acclaim throughout the sphere of both gaming and pop culture, Skyrim is getting a definitive re-release in the form of a "Premium Edition".

The Premium Edition includes a copy of the game, a t-shirt, a nice authentic map of Skyrim, The Infernal City: An Elder Scrolls Novel, a 600-page e-book strategy guide, six unique postcards featuring concept art for the game, a disc with bonus materials, and five songs from the game.

Inclusion of Skyrim's two currently available DLC packs Hearthfire and Dawnguard hasn't been confirmed, but it would definitely be a nice addition to the bundle.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Premium Edition retails at around $77 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC and will available on Dec. 7, 2012.
