Skyrim Together Reborn is a new mod that allows up to eight players to adventure through Skyrim together.

According to a report by PC Gamer, Skyrim Together Reborn is intended to replace the old multiplayer mod Skyrim Together which development for was rebooted in 2019. The mod had once again built steam with new modders coming to The Together Team.

The team aimed to release a version that would be compatible with the Skyrim Anniversary Edition, however the team noted that mod won't support Skyrim VR, versions of Skyrim prior to Special Edition 1.6, or the Game Pass version.

Skyrim Together Reborn is set to release on Friday, July 8 at 11 a.m. ET.

A video of the project from May showed five players working and playing together in Skyrim. The host player is seen taking the most control — talking to NPCs, initiating quests etc. all of which then updates for the rest of the players.

As expected from mods, there will be bugs and strange happenings. During the video, for example, the group discover that more than one person can sit on the same chair at one time.

"The mod won't be perfect. It will occasionally crash, some quests will break, there will be bugs," The Together Team said. "This is not fixable. This is just the reality of making a multiplayer mod instead of having a massive studio like Bethesda make a multiplayer game. Still, it's playable, it's fun, and it's a lot better than the old Skyrim Together mod, which was the goal of Reborn."

The Together Team are also reportedly working on a co-op mod for Fallout 4, though it apparently only has one modder working on it. It'll likely be some time before that mod is seen out in the open.
