WeloveSkyrimmods. A new, noteworthy one for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Falskaar, was released over the weekend, and it is quite a doozy. Falskaar adds almost 25 hours of content, a land mass a third the size of the original game, new characters, new voices, and dozens of quests.

Bethesda tweeted a tidbit today to make our Skyrim-playing console brethren even further jealous: a Thu’um-worthy 13.6 million PC mods have been downloaded to date, through Steam Workshop alone. That’s almost as many dragon bones as I have gathering dust in the front cabinet at Breezehome!
