Wyrmstooth, a hugely popular mod for Skyrim, was taken down in 2016 when its author removed all traces of it from sites like Nexus Mods. This month, it returns!

As PC Gamer reports, the mod is now back, having been uploaded by its original creator Jonx0r. And it returns with a new trailer, that in addition to showing off the stuff you’ll find in Wyrmstooth (like a new region and a big new quest) also uses a text-to-speech AI (Tacotron 2) to simulate the sound of actual Skyrim voice actors for the trailer’s narration, which is very impressive:

That was good news as I never played it. I’d have tried it if my mod list wasn’t a bit crowded with around 600 mods, I’ve read that the mod need a few compatibility patches so I’ll wait for them before trying it.
