You Can Finally Explore 'Skyrim' With Friends Thanks To Local Co-Op

Skyrim is pretty close to the perfect RPG, isn't it? Even if the combat is a little janky, the conversations are incredibly meme-able, and sometimes you get whacked 100 feet off the ground by giants, you can't deny its cultural hold on games and how many titles have tried to replicate its longevity. The one thing we do think it's missing though, is a co-op mode - but that's just been fixed.

Spotted by PCGamesN, Nucleus mod is the best way for you and a mate to play Skyrim: Special Edition together. Through local co-op, you can galavant through Whiterun, Dawnstar, and Riften together to your heart's content. The way it works, is through opening more than one version of the same game and splitting the inputs between the controllers you want to use. Then there is some cleaning up to do so the two or more perspectives can show up on the screen in a clean manner and there you have it - split-screen co-op for games that don't have the feature.


The mod isn't actually exclusive to just Skyrim though, although Bethesda's game is the latest addition to the project. You can also play a huge variety of other titles using the mod, from Bioshock 2 to Among Us, from Brutal Legend to Super Mario 64. A long list of games that can work with the mod makes us look forward to getting some friends over when we can and playing games like we used to after school on a Friday - ah, good times.

If you're interested in using the mod yourself, there is a bunch of information about how to download it on Skyrim Together and use it on GitHub and Reddit. However, downloading stuff from the internet always comes with a little bit of a risk, and the same goes for downloading mods so be careful when trying this for yourself.
