There are over 150 Skyrim Special Edition mods we think you should try on your PS4 and Xbox One as we push into the new year.
As we push into 2020, Skyrim Special Edition owners can no longer rely on Bethesda for new, free content. The company hasn’t confirmed any new feature updates and the last update, version 1.5.97, delivered content that requires players to spend real cash.
Bethesda periodically updates Skyrim’s Creation Club with new downloadable content, but the content isn’t free. If you want new, free content to Skyrim Special edition you’ll have to rely on the Skyrim modding 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 well over 10,000 mods. That’s an amazing statistic, but if you’re starting the game for the first time or jumping back in after a long time away, it can be overwhelming.
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 list of Xbox and PS4 Skyrim mods, we’ll 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 PlayStation 4. 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 in 2020 and beyond.
