Thanks to Zettamods we know of at least 5 Skyrim MOD’s of this caliber that you can check out right now. Your only mission is to play them for yourselves and and see Skyrim in a whole new light.
1. Katamari Dovahkiin
Katamari Dovahkiin is the first mod that can be called epic on our list. It involves dead humans and animals that you killed sticking to your feet while you move. With this mod, your character will have a massive ‘’collection’’ of creatures which will follow you all the time. This makes killing things in the game all the more daunting, if you do kill, you’ll end up with this fatal collection for the rest of the game. So word to the wise, kill sparingly and with reason.
2. Dragonborn in Termina
Do you like The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask? If you do then this mod is the right choice for you. It will import elements from the Zelda sequel into Skyrim and as such change the game’s core gameplay a ton.
You will get Pirate’s Fortress, Deku Kingdom, Gorona Village and so much more. It’s not without saying, that this mod will change the game significantly, teleporting you to a new world, reminiscent of The Legend of Zelda.
Enderal, is not merely a mod, but a huge undertaking to add more content, nay an entirely new experience to the game. This mod gives you a whole new world to play in, which will amount to anywhere from 30 to 100 hours of new gameplay. You will experience new maps, new enemies, opponents, classes and so much more. At the end of the day, its still a mod, but is so much more, almost like a sequel to Skyrim built on top of its engine. We highly recommend this mod for anyone who still wants to play the game this many years later but with new and exiting content.
4. Beyond Skyrim
