157 PS4 & Xbox One Skyrim Mods You Should Try Right Now

There are over 150 Skyrim Special Edition mods we think you should try on your PS4 and Xbox One right now.

As we push deeper in 2017 Skyrim Special Edition owners can no longer rely on Bethesda for new content. The company hasn’t confirmed any new updates and the last update, version 1.4, was focused on fixing bugs.

The company’s confirmed a new Creation Club for Skyrim but the content coming from the program won’t be free. If you want to add new, free content to the game you’ll have to rely on the Skyrim Special Edition mod community.

Skyrim Special Edition mods can change your game in a variety of different ways. Some mods make small tweaks to the game. Other mods deliver new items, characters, and graphical changes to Skyrim Special Edition.

Bethesda’s catalog now features close to 10,000 mods. That’s an amazing statistic but if you’re starting the game for the first time you might not know where to start.

We want to help you narrow it down with a list of the best Skyrim mods we’ve come across for PS4 and Xbox One.

Best Xbox One & PS4 Skyrim Mods

In this extensive Skyrim mods roundup we highlight more than 150 of our favorite mods for both consoles.

Before you dig in note that PS4 Skyrim mods are more limited than Xbox One mods. This is because PS4 mod developers can’t use external assets. Each slide notes the mod’s status for Xbox One and PS4. Many of these are exclusive to Microsoft’s console.

We’ll continue to add new mods to this list so be on the lookout for updates as we push deeper into the year.

Quality Map

One of our favorite Skyrim mods for PC is now available for console. 

A Quality World Map by IcePenguin is an essential mod for PC. And now that it's available for console, it's an essential mod for Xbox One. (It's not available for PS4 yet.)

Bethesda's vanilla Skyrim map is decent enough but this mod takes it to the next level with improved textures and detailed roads.

The developer has literally drawn out every single road in the game and needless to say, it's impressive. And useful. 

For more info, take a look at the video below.

Trust us, this one is very, very good. Give it a try today.

    Thanks for the info. That being said, I would like to suggest you change the name of the article since most of the mods mentioned are not available for PS4.

    This list isn’t good, XBOX sucks. Just ask all the people that have their systems continuously break down and controllers that fall apart after a few months. Microsoft basically has a monopoly on everything and that’s why they get everything. This list should be called XBOX gets everything because they’re assholes.

      Your an idiot, the reason why ps4 doesn’t get any good mods is because Sony is filled with a bunch of assholes that don’t want you to use any mods created by pc users, get your facts straight dipshit

        No, the reason PS4 does not allow external assets is because sony is afraid of piracy. With both the PSP and the PS3 able to be hacked they do not want to allow access to a mod that could potentially be used to hack the PS4 and pirate games and other media. I also owned an Xbox and had problems with it. I was forced to buy a new one. Next time have an argument before you call someone an idiot and a dipshit.

    The PS4 is better hardware, bit unfortunately Sony has made a major error in severely limiting mods for Skyrim – and not allowing them at all for Fallout 4.

    Ok, so I hear complaining from PS fans, whining about Xbox, when it’s really just that Sony is a shitty company. Take it up with them. You’re not gonna find a lot of Playstation mods because Sony is too proprietary. Most companies are run by assholes in general, Sony is no exception.

    Your title is misleading. 90% irrelevant for PS4 users.
