Seven years after the fact, dedicated modders continue to modify Skyrim in all sorts of weird and wonderful ways. There’s been so much new content released by these independent teams that there’s virtually an entirely new game to go and discover. Each month sees more released, and here we’re breaking down the picks of the bunch from January 2018.
Character Creation Overhaul By Syclonix
The Best New Skyrim Mods of January 2018
A huge part of Skyrim’s appeal is the ability to create a character from scratch and role-play your fantasy adventure exactly the way you want. Unfortunately, the vanilla package is actually pretty limited by modern standards with only 10 base character models. The Character Creation Overhaul by Sylonix adds way more depth. There are enough options here for a claimed 229,320 different unique character combinations! Better still, all twenty-one classes from Morrowind and Oblivion make a comeback with this mod. Each class has its own specialization, favored attribute, and major skills. You can even create custom classes, too!
If you’re already into mods, don’t worry because this one has maximum compatibility with other mods (i.e. Alternate Start, Live Another Life) and works with new characters and existing characters alike. It is only available on Xbox One.
