Skyrim Special Edition's Creation Club is having a sale, and as part of that sale you can get your own pet Nix-Hound for free. It'll cost your in-game character 400 gold and a trip to Solstheim, but you the player won't need to spend any real money on Creation Club points to get it.

The Nix-Hound is a bug-eyed dog creature you might remember from Morrowind. This add-on not only lets you pick up one of the wall-eyed beasts as a pet (with its own inventory to carry your burdens), but also adds them as roaming monsters across the isle of Solstheim, which could use the variety.

You'll have to access the Creation Club via the main menu to find the Nix-Hound add-on. If you're after free mods then here's our list of the best mods for Skyrim Special Edition, and for vanilla Skyrim.

A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games. He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
