The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is 11 years old now, but the modding community for this Besthesda staple is still active and bringing out new exciting content. One such mod is the Skyrim Together Reborn mod which brings a cooperative gameplay mechanic into the classic game. Skyrim Together Reborn has hit an incredible milestone recently, having been downloaded in excess of 80,000 times in three days.

This is a remarkable achievement, but even so, the team behind the mod, headed by Reddit user RBcosideci, AKA Robbe, has stated that they are tired and moving on to other projects. 

‘The current dev team is very tired, and, frankly, is simply interested in branching out and doing other projects. We will still be here to guide new developers, review code, and perhaps occasionally implement features and fixes.

As for right now, though, we need a break. After working on this project for 1 and a half years non-stop, I will take a hiatus from the project for a few weeks. The community has all the tools available to them to install and run Reborn.’ 

Having experienced an incredibly successful launch, despite ‘the technical difficulties that (the team) warned about beforehand,’ Robbe and the team have decided to take a well-deserved break before continuing with other work. 

In a heartwarming turn of events, Robbe gave the general Skyrim modding community permission to improve the mod as they see fit. 

‘We are excited about the future of Reborn. With thousands of man hours of work put into the project already, we have done most of the heavy lifting for you. With the mod going open source, it is now up to you, the community, to step up, and further develop Reborn.’

We don’t know fully well what projects the team will be working on after their hiatus, but we do know that they have a similar mod planned for Fallout 4, another classic celebrating its 16th birthday this year.

The mod is called Fallout Together and will bring a multiplayer aspect into the game. If you like Fallout mods, boy have we got news for you: an exciting new trailer has just dropped for the highly-anticipated Fallout: London mod!

I hail from the awe-inspiring beauty of South Africa. Born and raised in Pretoria, I've always had a deep interest in local history, particularly conflicts, architecture, and our country's rich past of being a plaything for European aristocracy. 'Tis an attempt at humor. My interest in history has since translated into hours at a time researching everything from the many reasons the Titanic sank (really, it's a wonder she ever left Belfast) to why Minecraft is such a feat of human technological accomplishment. I am an avid video gamer (Sims 4 definitely counts as video gaming, I checked) and particularly enjoy playing the part of a relatively benign overlord in Minecraft. I enjoy the diverse experiences gaming offers the player. Within the space of a few hours, a player can go from having a career as an interior decorator in Sims, to training as an archer under Niruin in Skyrim. I believe video games have so much more to teach humanity about community, kindness, and loyalty, and I enjoy the opportunity to bring concepts of the like into literary pieces.
