Skyrim Special Edition: 13 mods added by Bethesda to celebrate Halloween

Skyrim Special Edition

Skyrim continues its life cycle undeterred, 10 years after its original release, with the addition of 13 other mods by Bethesda chosen to celebrate Halloween, therefore considered "official" as approved by the developers.

After 14 versions officially published on the market, Skyrim therefore continues its path and in this case we are talking about the Special Edition and later, which can count on the addition of 13 mods all inserted together in these days to be able to celebrate, also in the Bethesda RPG, the Halloween period.

As expected, these are additions and changes characterized by a disturbing or scary tone, or simply strange but still somehow in line with the holiday spirit of the period.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, an armor mod for Halloween Among these mods we find weapons, armor, quests and creatures to summon, in addition to other features it adds to the infinite RPG.

Among them there is the Medusa & Drakul armor created by ZerofrostSatyr, the Bloody Bones weapon from XvomTheMad, the Soul Cairn Shack mod from Betalille and the additional quest line The Brotherhood Of Old by Tom_Tesoro. Among similar spells and races, we find the Ebony Battle Spiders - Conjuration Spell by ShadowCrosserX which allows you to summon battle spiders and the particular mods Foxpaw Manor and Adalvald's Retreat, which add new locations and buildings somewhat in line with the eerie spirit. br>
In more vampire terms, there's also Gonkish's The Unique Vampire Dens mod with a number of themed settings, as well as The Grim Apothecary and Grim Potions, all to set a tone in line with Halloween in between various vampires and witches. Some of these mods can only be played on Xbox platforms, others only on PlayStation.

New ‘Skyrim’ Special Edition mod aims to fix exterior FPS

A brand new Skyrim Special Edition mod optimizes the game’s exterior FPS and performance.

The eFPS – Exterior FPS Boost mod was created by modder ‘nicola89b’ and aims to “make Skyrim great again with miracle FPS improvement”. The designer states in the description that the mod is a work in progress, is still operational but warns players to install it at their own risk.

“eFPS – Exterior FPS boost makes extensive use of a native engine feature called Occlusion Culling,” the description reads. “Occlusion Panes have been strategically hand-placed to enhance performance without affecting visibility and immersion.

“These panes are placed inside walls, houses, mountains and any big object in general, drastically reducing the draw calls. In our testing, we’ve detected improvements of up to 5-20 FPS in certain critical areas.”

The modder explains that they put thousands of occlusion panes and boxes in big parts of the map one by one, saying that the panes are placed within the environment such as houses, walls, mountains and more to reduce “draw calls”, which means a 5 to 20 FPS boost in critical areas.

Nicola89b does note that those with an existing save might want to start a separate save before installing the mod as they “still haven’t completely figured out how eFPS behaves with existing saves”, so fair warning.

The eFPS – Exterior FPS Boost can be found on the popular modding site, Nexus Mods and it currently has almost 1K endorsements as well as over 87K views.

Earlier this month, the NoSkyrim mod, which prevents players from booting up Skyrim, was taken down from Nexus Mods. After installing it, clicking a button to load up the game simply doesn’t allow it, making it seem rather pointless. Now it’s nowhere to be found on Nexus Mods.

Meanwhile, Bethesda has announced a Skyrim Anniversary Edition.
