Skyrim and Dark Souls are two of essentially the most beloved RPG games of our time, with two distinct approaches to fight. Fans of each have posted mods previously aiming to mash the 2 collectively – akin to this Skyrim mod that makes combat reach more like Dark Souls – and now one other modder is aiming to overhaul Skyrim’s melee weapon animations to make them extra like these in FromSoftware’s action-RPG.

A brand new mod posted by creator Miken1ke on Skyrim Special Edition’s slice of Nexus Mods provides “animations for the battleaxes and warhammers inspired by Dark Souls”, which – as you’ll be able to see within the preview clip under – provides Skyrim’s personal movesets a entire different flavour. Swapping out Skyrim’s extra single-strike, slash-and-bash fashion, the mod provides extra chained swiping actions to the animations of its chunky melee weapons, and prospers harking back to Dark Souls’ strategy to fight.

Similarly, one other of the creator’s “Elder Souls” latest mods (made in collaboration with modder Distar66, who helped create the SkySA animation framework that these mods use), brings sweep assaults à la Dark Souls to the open-world game, permitting you to, properly, sweep a number of enemies off of their ft quite than only one.

Another, posted earlier this month, equally overhauls sword animations to provide them a Dark Souls flavour – and, it feels like we will count on to see extra, because the creator explains that that is the primary mod in challenge that’s seeking to overhaul all of Skyrim’s weapon kind animations.
