Skyrim horror mod makes nights feel like you’re playing Silent Hill

When they’re not talking to Jarls, destroying all of Nazeem’s furniture or trying to win a civil war, Skyrim’s Dragonborn generally spends a lot of time fighting a litany of fearsome foes.

One result of this is that, as a veteran of titanic tussles with Alduin and the ebony warrior, the province’s prophesied hero probably isn’t intimidated by much, even if modders have consistently done their best to give Skyrim’s dragonslayer the willies over the years.

If you’re a fan of such mods, but have also put together a build so overpowered that entities like “The Shade” aren’t enough of a threat to give you a scare on their own, a new mod might be just what you need to dial up the spooky vibes to the right level.

Have you ever wanted a Skyrim mod to make travelling at night feel as spooky as possible?

The mod in question is called ‘Foggy Nights’ and is the work of modder hoycid, whose previous work has brought dark fantasy music to Skyrim conversion mod Enderal and reshaded Kenshi.

This time, they’ve decided to bring the unnerving atmosphere of the Silent Hill games to nocturnal Skyrim, in order to make any Halloween-themed playthroughs you might be considering feel appropriately spooky.

In order to deliver the eerie vibes, the mod changes the weather you’ll experience between sunset and sunrise, ensuring that a thick fog will descend over the land no matter whether you’re camping out in the frigid ice fields of Winterhold or wandering through the forest near Falkreath.

If you want a preview of how this’ll affect the atmosphere after dark, you can check out the video below.

Thankfully, the mod should be compatible with any existing weather mods you have installed, ensuring that the only nightmares you’ll be facing will be in-game, rather than in the menu of your chosen mod manager.

However, hoycid isn’t quite clear on whether the mod will haunt you if you attempt to uninstall it as soon as Halloween is over, so you’ll just have to see if that’s the case.

Regardless of how terrifying the idea of being haunted by a mod is to you, make sure to follow us for more updates on The Elder Scrolls 6 and the wacky world of Skyrim modding.
