Skyrim Together Reborn is the multiplayer Skyrim mod we've always dreamed of.
Multiplayer Skyrim Mod, Together Reborn, Downloaded 60,000 Times in Three Days
It's probably safe to say at this point that Skyrim will never die. And that's thanks in no small part to the active modding community diligently working to freshen things up.
Outlandish outfits, graphical touch-ups, and a mod that introduces actual magic lessons to the College of Winterhold are some of the popular mods available on Nexus mods. But one recent Skyrim mod in particular has caught our attention for gracing us with the multiplayer Skyrim experience we've always wanted.
And we're not the only ones whose interest has been suitably piqued. In fact, Skyrim Together Reborn has quickly become the most popular Skyrim mod on Nexus in the last 30 days with around 60,000 downloads since it was uploaded on 8th July. Clearly, a multiplayer Skyrim experience is what the people want.
While the creators state that the mod is intended for 2-8 players playing co-op, they also tested it out with 30+ players. Which is distinctly MMO-ey territory. But sadly not where their focus is at the moment.
Besides, any Skyrim fans looking to get their Elder Scrolls fix in an MMO context need look no further than the acclaimed Elder Scrolls Online, which pumps out mountains of new content on the regular. The most recent of which being the High Isle saga.
But if a small-scale co-op romp through Skyrim's quest lines is more to your liking, then players must first meet a few requirements. Skyrim Together Reborn only supports the latest patches of Special Edition and Anniversary Edition, with the creators suggesting that any Anniversary Edition extra features should be disabled.
The dev team recommend that anyone wishing to dive into multiplayer Skyrim with their friends first check out their 'getting started' guide on YouTube.
Turning Skyrim into a multiplayer experience isn't easy, so it stands to reason that a few kinks need to be ironed out first. But any talented modders out there can help contribute to its development via Github.
