Skyrim is a popular game because of its replayability, rich fantasy world, and fun gameplay. One thing it does not have, though, is an online co-op option. That's where the Skyrim Together Reborn Mod comes in. Try out this mod with your friends after a few simple steps.
What is the Skyrim Together Reborn Mod?
For Skyrim fans who have always wanted an online multiplayer option, the Skyrim Together Reborn Mod might be the answer. The mod was created by The Together Team, a group that volunteered their work together to create a gaming passion project. It utilizes online servers initiated by party members to join one shared game of Skyrim.
How many players can play on one server in the Skyrim Together Reborn Mod?
The Skyrim Together Reborn Mod is not made to be an MMO, which has been explicitly stated by the Together Team. Between two to eight players are the ideal number to have on one server. While this is the ideal amount, mod creators have stated they have tested as many as 30 players on a server at one time.
Will your other mods work with the Skyrim Together Reborn Mod?
According to the creators of the mod, if you and the other online co-op person have the same visual mods, you'll both see them online. If there are conflicting visual mods, it seems Skyrim will default to vanilla visuals. In regards to gameplay mods, it appears these can not be supported by the mod. This could change in the future, but the creators have not said this.
