While modders have been working tirelessly since Skyrim's release to improve things like the game's graphics and inventory, one mod has set its sights a little higher: adding multiplayer to the decidedly singleplayer game.

And it's been done. Sort of. While it's still early days, the Skyrim Online mod is working in a limited manner, with players able to drop into a world (with other players displayed as a default "prisoner" avatar) and chat. There's even a friends list.

As a warning, getting the thing up and running will mean overwriting the game's config files, so don't mess around with it if you don't know what you're doing.

As another warning, this thing is rough, as you'll see in the clip above, so don't expect a seamless experience.
