Nearly six years on, Skyrim is the game that won’t quit, has no chill, and won’t let you move on! I’m only sort of kidding, Skyrim is a massively popular game with exponential replayability, the game has seen countless mods, a remaster for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and now, a new mode that puts survival into the mix.
Survival Mode adds new gameplay features and challenges to transform Skyrim into a land of unrelenting cold and harsh wilderness. You can check out the map below to see all the treacherous climate zones, plus helpful landmarks that could ensure you survive your journey
The mod is set to launch next week, will add modifiers like hunger, fatigue, and temperature to Skyrim and it is up to you to micromanage each one to the best of your ability. To spice it up even further, Bethesda removed the ability to automatically regenerate health after a certain amount of time and to level up, you need to sleep to gain those levels, its akin to the way XP works in Final Fantasy XV.
There is one caveat though, it is only free for two weeks and only available through the Creation Club, after that, you’ll need to pony up cash for the mod.
