April Fools’ Skyrim Mod ‘Fixes’ One Key Feature

A Skyrim modder has released a hilarious mod that “fixes” one of the game’s biggest problems. Players have been looking to fix Skyrim‘s issues since its release in 2011, but this mod takes that mantra to another level.

The best thing about the Skyrim mods out there, is the enormous variety in content and scale. For some players, the most important thing will be small quality-of-life changes, and there are huge amounts of them available. For others, graphics will take center stage, with the game allowing for mods that make the game look like it was released in 2023. Others just want the game to be completely silly, and that’s okay too – it’s been a long time since the original Thomas the Tank Engine mod was released for Skyrim, but there have been plenty of other mods in that vein since. This mod fits right into that.


The mod is called “Ultra Immersive Horses,” and replaces Skyrim‘s horses with a Mazda RX-7. That’s right – player’s no longer have to waste time traversing Skyrim‘s harsh lands on horseback, when, as Nexus Mods author IAmNotSimon describes it, “a greatly superior way of transportation” is available. It even includes custom sounds to increase immersion. The mod has been released as a fun way to celebrate April Fools’ Day, but there are plenty of real mods that overhaul Skyrim‘s horses for players looking to refresh one of the game’s most criticized features.

Complete overhauls are extremely popular in the Skyrim modding scene. While this mod is clearly an April Fools’ joke, this mod that overhauls Skyrim‘s bandit gameplay isn’t, and provides a great way for gamers to freshen up a core feature of the game. With the enormous amount of mods available for Skyrim, there’s definitely room for a few joke mods to lighten up the mood, especially on April Fools’ Day. There might even be players out there that genuinely use the mod. Modding is a personal experience, and Skyrim can become anything players want it to be. If that means driving a Mazda RX-7 through Riverwood, then so be it.

Fans of The Elder Scrolls will be hoping Skyrim‘s sequel offers the same modding versatility as its predecessors. Not much is confirmed about The Elder Scrolls 6 so far, but it wouldn’t be the same if modders weren’t able to mod in a Mazda RX-7 for a cheap laugh. There are plenty of fans who believe Bethesda should take influence from Skyrim for The Elder Scrolls 6. While this is broadly true and usually a good thing, “Ultra Immersive Horses” should probably not be a part of that conversation. Still, it’s genuinely exciting to see what modders will come up with in future titles, after their Skyrim track record was so strong.

Skyrim is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
