New Skyrim mods add the dragons from House of the Dragon


The RPG Skyrim has been sustained for years by its modding community. Now, a new mod transforms the game’s dragons into Caraxes, Syrax, Drogon and the rest.

Fans of the Bethesda video game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim can download a new mod that transforms the many dragons in the popular RPG into the ones from HBO’s House of the Dragon.

The full list of dragons featured in the mod include Bloodwyrm (Caraxes), Dreamfyre, Seasmoke and Blackdread (Balerion). This is the newest mod and an expansion on a previous one released last month that added skins for Drogon, Rhaegal and Viserion.

Skyrim was first released back in 2011, and it’s survived this long thanks to its modding community. Game of Thrones mods have popped up before, with some popular ones adding things like Valyrian Steel weapons, Stark companions and the Game of Thrones music.

The new dragon mod also brings a fresh component to dragon combat in Skyrim, which can get stale after playing the game for 12 years. Not only do the dragons look different, they get new movement patterns and sound effects that make them feel more realistic.

Bethesda is currently developing a new Elder Scrolls game since Skryrim came out, and much like the next Song of Ice and Fire book, there is no clear release date in sight. Almost all the information we have about Elder Scrolls 6 is speculation, except for a content-scarce teaser trailer released in 2019.

Happily, the House of the Dragon mod can tide over Skyrim fans while they wait for the next proper game…or the next season of House of the Dragon.
