Skyrim Special Edition will bring more than just enhanced graphics and DLC when it arrives later this year. It’ll also bring mods to the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Today we want to highlight a few Skyrim mods we hope make it to the Xbox One and PS4.
While many gamers were hoping for an Elder Scrolls 6 announcement at E3 2016 that game appears to be several years away at least. Bethesda didn’t leave fans of the series hanging though.
On stage, the company confirmed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, a Skyrim remaster for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC that’s set to arrive this fall on October 28th. It’s a twist on a classic favorite.
If you buy a copy of Skyrim Special Edition you can expect improved graphics including volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, new snow shaders, new water shaders, and screen-space reflections.
You can also expect all of the game’s DLC (Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn) and access to a library of Skyrim mods.
PC Skyrim mods have been out for years but Skyrim Special Edition brings them to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 for the first time. Yes, PS4 Skyrim mods are confirmed and they will be available for the console at launch.
There’s a vast library of Skyrim mods out there and today we want to highlight a few we want to see released for the Xbox One and PS4. (Note: Some of these have already appeared on Bethesda’s website but it’s not clear if they will be available on launch day.)
Some of the best PC Fallout 4 mods have shown up for console and we’re hoping for the same from Skyrim mod developers.
Here’s our growing wish list.
Killing a dragon in Skyrim is satisfying. Looting the dragon and realizing you have no room in your inventory for dragon bones isn't. This is why we hope Bandolier, one of our favorite Skyrim mods, makes its way over to the console.
Bandolier - Bags and Pouches adds a number of different (and extremely clever) items that increase your carry weight. There are book holders, belt pouches, and vial holders. And of course, there are bandoliers. All of them look great and they serve an important purpose.
Some bandoliers will add 100 to your carry weight. If you opt for a small pouch, it'll increase your carry weight by 25.
The best part is that you can combine up to seven different pieces in the Chest, Back Left, Back Right, Front Left, Front Right, Left Side and Right Side slots.
We'll definitely be on the lookout for this one after Skyrim mods arrive for console. It's a good one. If you need more information, watch the video above.
