The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

Feature: Graphics mods, new NPCs and massive overhauls

All the best Skyrim mods on PC

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is as much a platform for mods as it is an open-world RPG about dumb dragons and dumber Vikings. Over the last seven years, an inconceivable number of them have been crafted, and while plenty have fallen by the wayside, others have become essential mainstays in anyone’s mod library. With Skyrim Special Edition, things got a bit more complicated. Some…

Volcanic renovation abounds in Morrowind-to-Skyrim mod Skywind’s new trailer

Skywind - a grand mod project to rebuild Morrowind using Skyrim's slightly more contemporary tech - may be shooting for the moon, but those stars feel almost within reach thanks to its latest trailer, released yesterday. Taking us on an ominously (and professionally) narrated tour of House Dagoth's volcano-side properties, it's a testament to what a small team can achieve with the right tools, enough…

Skyrim mod The Forgotten City remade as standalone

The Forgotten City, a time-looping murder mystery which won an Australian Writers Guild Award as a mod for Skyrim, is becoming its own game. Developers Modern Storyteller announced last night that they're "re-imagining" The Forgotten City as a standalone game in Unreal Engine. I missed the mod but this sounds like a fascinating Groundhog Day/The Last Express sort of time-looping mystery, sending us explore and…

Turn Skyrim’s flora colourful with Dreams Of Hurling Your Entire Face Into A Rose Coloured Plastic Fern

Skyrim may be a fantasy land--you can tell because people wear furs and have weird American accents--but wouldn't it be nice if it were a little more fantastic? You can now turn the land's flora all colourful and doodly with Dreams Of Hurling Your Entire Face Into A Rose Coloured Plastic Fern, a wonderfully-named new mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. It's…

New Beyond Skyrim project promises to go even beyonder to Iliac Bay

A proper modding community can keep a game world alive long after the studio behind that title has put it to pasture. Or, more accurately in this case, when the studio just keeps porting the original game to new devices instead of, you know, making new entries. Skyrim has some of the most in-depth world building teams on the mod market, and instead of merely…

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR has jacked into PC

It's time to hang a pine-scented Little Tree air freshener from your cybergoggs because The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR last night launched on PC, following its console debut in November 2017. It's Skyrim but in VR, yeah? Put your feet in a foot spa while you sit by a river in the rain, hang an old sock over your nose when venturing into Blackreach,…

Fus Vee Ah! Skyrim VR jacking into PC next month

Given that the iconic image of Skyrim is a fella wearing a Knightmare-esque bucket on his head, it's only fitting that Bethesda want you to strap cybergoggles onto your head to enter the fantasy RPG's world. Today they announced a PC release for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, a new standalone version built for cybergoggles. Skyrim VR debuted on PlayStation VR in November 2017,…

Beyond Skyrim: Morrowind mod shows ash-choked land

A new video of Beyond Skyrim: Morrowind, a wildly ambitious upcoming mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, gives a look at its version of lands from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. This isn't one of those mods remaking Morrowind, mind. The wider Beyond Skyrim project wants to revisit lands from older Elder Scrolls games, exploring how they've changed in the hundreds of years since…

Skyrim opens Creation Club DLC store, offers Survival Mode free for a few days

Bethesda's new 'Creation Club' DLC microtransaction store has launched for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition [official site], following a beta last week and its debut in Fallout 4 in August. It stocks mostly packs of weapons, armour, and bits for a couple of quid each - nothing exciting. Perhaps the biggest bit is Survival Mode, which adds hunger and cold and all those…

Skyrim’s Creation Club enters beta, offers Survival Mode free for starters

After a less-than-successful initial foray into the realm of monetising Skyrim mods, Bethesda are presently rolling out a public beta of their Creation Club - their DLC-esque, more corporate alternative - to the revamped Skyrim Special Edition [official site]. To sweeten the pot, they're offering early adopters the option to claim a free copy of Survival Mode, a major gameplay modification adding the management of simulated hunger,…

Following paid mods fiasco, Bethesda launch Fallout 4 Creation Club

The first digital fruits of Bethesda's new kinda-sorta-paid-mods programme, the Creation Club, arrive today in Fallout 4 [official site]. It'll then hit Skyrim in September. Unlike Bethesda's disastrous first flirtation with paid mods for Skyrim in 2015, which was quickly abandoned, the Creation Club is more like a DLC microtransaction store partially outsourced to modders. It's a selection of new content Bethesda are approving and…

Feature: Cheap at twice the price

Steam Charts: Half Price Edition!

Other sites will bombard you with "facts" and "details" about the top-selling games on Steam, but not us. We won't patronise you with such things. We know you're better than that, taller, more attractive than the readers of those sites. We know you know we know you better, and as such reach for higher, smarter, more eloquent brilliance.

Skyrim Beyond: Bruma mod travels to familiar lands

A corner of the world of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has arrived in Skyrim with the launch of Beyond Skyrim: Bruma [official site], a mod set around Cyrodil's city of Bruma. Unlike the still-in-development mod remaking Oblivion inside Skyrim, this mod is telling new stories set around the time of Skryim - 200 years after Oblivion. As well as recreating and updating the Bruma…

Skyblivion looks even more like Oblivion rebuilt in Skyrim

Skyblivion [official site], the huge fan project to remake The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as a Skyrim mod, is picking up pace. We had a peek at their progress in December and, the dev team say, that video helped them recruit a load more help. "We have made more progress in the 2 months after the release of our update video than we have in…

Skyrim megamod Enderal getting own expansion

SureAI's huge Skyrim total conversion Enderal: The Shards of Order [official site], which builds a whole new game upon Bethesda's foundations, is getting an expansion of its own in 2017. Enderal's launch this year was dang impressive - "play this excellent mod," said Cobbo - but a few bits were cut from the initial release. Now the game's lead writer has picked those up off…

Skyblivion is looking a lot like Oblivion rebuilt in Skyrim

As another year ends, it's time to reflect on all that's been done and all that's still to come. So they tell me, anyway; I try to drink away any concept of the past or future. But bless 'em, the gang remaking The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion have worked hard and are proud of their work. A new trailer shows off Skyblivion [official site] as…
