Skyrim’s Survival Mode add-on available free for a limited time
The previously unveiled ‘Survival Mode’ add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is now available as part of the game’s new Creation Club paid DLC marketplace, but fans who act fast can snag the new add-on for free.
True to its name, Survival Mode offers a more hardcore Skyrim experience, tasking players with facing hazards like hunger, harsh weather, and sleep deprivation in addition to all the dragons and trolls they’ll undoubtedly run into as well. To help celebrate the launch of the Creation Club (which offers premium DLC like new weapons, armor, and gameplay modifiers), the Survival Mode add-on can be had for free, but only until tomorrow, October 10. After that point, you’ll have to fork over a bit of cash if you want to take Survival Mode for a spin.
The Creation Club is currently only available for Skyrim: Special Edition, the enhanced version of the original Skyrim which was released for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
