We recently reported that Skyrim Together was soon to enter a closed beta, and now it's available to download and play for the mod's Patreon backers, with a full open beta expected within the next few weeks.
Skyrim Together allows up to eight players to co-operatively play together through quests or to just explore the realm of Skyrim. Players of the closed beta can invite their friends, start private sessions, fight each other, and go on quests either together or do different quests simultaneously.
There's a few drawbacks currently, as Dragon encounters are removed due to issues, and many quests, being designed with single player in mind, can be easily abused or broken altogether, so it requires some self control on the team's part to avoid any nasty bugs or issues in that regard.
But if you're up for some multiplayer fun within Skyrim, this is a mod to watch. Stay tuned to GameFront for more news and developments on Skyrim Together as they are released.
