Skyrim Online Co-Op Mod Will Be Released This Week
Skyrim Together Reborn, a new and enhanced co-operative mod for Skyrim is being released later this week, on July 8.
Skyrim Together Reborn let eight players play Skyrim together, with more or less everything in the game synced up. Quests, the contents of chests, audio and subtitled dialogue, and much more are fully synced between players’ games, and PvP can even be enabled if wanted.
The mod from Tilted Online is a remaster of sorts of the modding team’s earlier version of the mod, simply called Skyrim Together, but this new version was created from the ground up and features vast advancements.
That’s not to say it will work perfectly though, as the team noted in a Reddit post that it’s very difficult to turn single-player games into multiplayer games, especially as most members are volunteers donating in their free time.
“The mod won’t be perfect. It will occasionally crash, some quests will break, and there will be bugs. This is not fixable,” the post said. “This is just the reality of making a multiplayer mod instead of having a massive studio like Bethesda make a multiplayer game.
“Still, it’s playable, it’s fun, and it’s a lot better than the old Skyrim Together mod, which was the goal of Reborn.”
Bethesda games have always had an avid modding community but Skyrim Together Reborn will apparently add a whole new way to play for those still roaming around Skyrim more than a decade after it was released. With Elder Scrolls VI likely still years away, it gives a new way to play the Elder Scrolls for a lot of gamers.
