Skyrim Multiplayer - For years, Bethesda fans around the world have yearned for a multiplayer experience in their favorite games. Many felt as though ESO and Fallout76 simply didn't fit the bill, providing more of an MMO experience than a co-op one, and thus the Together Team was formed. After a long development process of over 5 years, a complete rewrite of the code base, and countless hours spent overcoming various obstacles, the Together Team finally released their passion project in the form of Skyrim Together Reborn. Now that it is open source, future development of Reborn is heavily reliant on the community to contribute. Therefore, there are no promised release dates or estimates on mod progress or features.
