Skyrim Script Extender coming to Special Edition

Please wait...

Published by FileTrekker 1 year ago , last updated 8 months ago

Skyrim Special Edition, while a solid free update for a game over 5 years old, caused some ripples among the modding scene with it's distinct lack of mod support, especially those that rely on SKSE - thankfully, a new 64 bit version compatible with Special Edition is coming.

It didn't come as much of a surprise that Special Edition was going to break a lost of pre-existing mods, but the vanilla experience did come as something of a shock to many players, who may have expected more mods to be available quickly, especially interface enhancements and other advanced modifications - unfortunately a lot of these relied heavily on Skyrim Script Extender - but thankfully, the new version is nearly here.

The team say they're aiming for a March release for the new update, named SKSE64, which will allow mod authors to once again to use advanced scripting in their modifications, and should open up Skyrim Special Edition to a much wider range of modifications.

Are you looking forward to SKSE64? Will it be the thing that brings you back to Skyrim? Let us know in the comments below!
