Older ‘Skyrim‘ mods will work with ‘Special Edition,’ but there’s a catch. Good news, Skyrim fans. Bethesda’s upcoming “Special Edition” remaster of the 2011 Elder Scrolls game will support the earlier version’s mods with only minimal hassle. The key here is Bethesda.net, since the publisher’s game mods now live there.
Simply so, how do I add mods to Skyrim Special Edition PC?

what version of Skyrim is best for mods? In my opinion the Skyrim Legendary Edition is the best option for modding now, but in 1-2 years the Special Edition will be the better choice. Also you can get the Skyrim legendary Edition very cheap, but DON’T buy it on steam. On sites like mmoga.net you get Skyrim LE for 10€ or less.
Moreover, can I use Skyrim mods on special edition?
4 Answers. No, the mods made for 32-bit Skyrim (original) will not work for the 64-bit Skyrim Special Edition. See here: Skyrim Special Edition makes the jump from 32-bit to 64-bit, rendering the original mods useless.
Are Skyrim mods free?
This is because there’s a lot of them: more than 28,000 Skyrim mods to download on the Steam Workshop, and countless more on Skyrim Nexus. And, best of all, every one of these Skyrim mods is free! No wonder there’s been over one billion mod downloads between Skyrim and Fallout.
