Modders have been working on enabling co-op multiplayer for Skyrim for years in various forms, like Skyrim Together and Tamriel Online. Later this week, the most promising Skyrim multiplayer mod to date will launch – Skyrim Together Reborn.
Skyrim Together Reborn is a version 1.0 update to Skyrim Together, marking the mod's official release. As the name implies, the mod will enable multiplayer in Skyrim, allowing up to 5 players to explore and do quests together. The mod will even handle quest syncing so everyone progresses together.
Originally, Skyrim Together Reborn was supposed to have a beta before the final release, but after some last minute improvements, the dev team decided it could polish things up and jump straight to version 1.0.
As with any ambitious mod, there will be quirks and not everything will work perfectly at all times. With that in mind, if you're planning on downloading this, don't expect an ultra-polished multiplayer experience. There will likely be some issues, like networking errors or crashes while playing. The developers will fix lingering issues post-launch, but as with most mods, the team primarily consists of volunteers doing this as a labour of love in their spare time, so patience will be required.
Skyrim Together Reborn will be available on Nexus Mods as of the 8th of July at 4PM GMT.

KitGuru Says: It has been a while since I last tried Skyrim Together, so it is great to see that the mod is coming out and has been seen through to completion. Will you be looking to install this for some co-op Skyrim over the weekend?
