Happy Skyrim day! The remastered special edition is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, complete with revamped visuals, all previous DLC, and mod support.
Mod support is perhaps the most exciting new inclusion to Bethesda’s open world epic (at least on consoles) bringing depth to the game that a lot of us haven’t seen before (again, at least on consoles – quiet back there PC, gamers).
To get you in the mood while you sit at work counting down the hours till you can get home and play (provided you haven’t pulled a sicky), you can browse a full list of available mods across all platforms over on Bethesda’s website.
There’s plenty of neat additions to be had to keep things fresh for return visitors to Skyrim, such as added difficulty levels, the removal of health regeneration, and making villages and towns larger than before.
If you see one you fancy, you can add them to your library straight from the site, ready to download when you get in.
You can see all 209 currently available mods over here. Xbox One currently boasts 100, while PlayStation 4 has a measly 27.
It’s worth pointing out that Sony and Bethesda had some trouble getting mods to PS4, so a compromise reached between the two means modders can’t use new code or external assets – they can only use what’s already in the game.
These restrictions will seem to already have had an effect on the creativity and quantity on mods available for PS4, but it’s better than nothing, I guess.
PC gamers, meanwhile, don’t really need Bethesda’s official site for mods at all. They’ve been doing their own thing in Skyrim (and pretty much every other game) for years now. Jammy bastards.
