Everyone’s beloved gaming grandma, Shirley Curry, has been modded into Skyrim and the game is live on Nexus Mods. You can now play the game alongside her as she supports you as an NPC follower.

Curry is 83 and quickly made a name for herself because she’s a older than the typical streamer. She is most known by fans for streaming Bethesda’s RPG classic, Skyrim, so the release is a special way to recognize her legacy within the Skyrim community.

Per the Nexus Mods page, Curry not only gave her blessing for the mod, “but also offered up her voice, to give the genuine authenticity this mod deserves!” So now fans of both Skyrim and Curry will get the true gaming grandma experience.

This isn’t the only time Curry is slated to be featured in a Bethesda game. Curry is so popular that Besthesda Game Studios has already promised that she’ll be a character in The Elder Scrolls 6. But it seems that fans wanted to honor her sooner rather than later, and thus a new mod was born.

Shirley, a Skyrim follower mod is out for Windows PC and for Xbox One now.
