A new The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim First-Person Combat Animations mod has been released which enhances the game’s first-person combat experience.

Created for the PC version of Skyrim Special Edition by modder ‘ShoryukenBruh’, the mod includes more than 40 new animations alongside new unique weapon animations to overhaul the game’s combat. According to its creator, the modification allows for weapons to feel chunkier, swords to actually slice and cut, axes will hack, and well – you get the picture. In addition, the mod also matches the game’s original timing so relearning weapons isn’t required.
