Skyrim Beyond: Bruma mod travels to familiar lands

A corner of the world of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion has arrived in Skyrim with the launch of Beyond Skyrim: Bruma [official site], a mod set around Cyrodil's city of Bruma. Unlike the still-in-development mod remaking Oblivion inside Skyrim, this mod is telling new stories set around the time of Skryim - 200 years after Oblivion. As well as recreating and updating the Bruma…

Skyblivion looks even more like Oblivion rebuilt in Skyrim

Skyblivion [official site], the huge fan project to remake The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as a Skyrim mod, is picking up pace. We had a peek at their progress in December and, the dev team say, that video helped them recruit a load more help. "We have made more progress in the 2 months after the release of our update video than we have in…

Skyblivion is looking a lot like Oblivion rebuilt in Skyrim

As another year ends, it's time to reflect on all that's been done and all that's still to come. So they tell me, anyway; I try to drink away any concept of the past or future. But bless 'em, the gang remaking The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion have worked hard and are proud of their work. A new trailer shows off Skyblivion [official site] as…

Skyblivion Bringing Oblivion’s Soul Into Skyrim’s Body

There's an unbelievable amount of mods available for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim from the obscene and naughty to the absolutely ridiculous and nonsensical. Dedicated fans of the game have even released entirely new lands and stories to rival Skyrim's original in breadth and scope. TESRenewal is attempting to do a sort of inception within the framework of Skyrim's Creation Kit and answer the question,…

Skywind Video Shows Progress In Reviving Morrowind

I used to like total conversions not only for those few which were released, but for watching the development process in action. Untextured weapon models get a bad rap, but I like watching a plan come together or even partially together. Skywind, then. It's an attempt to re-build Morrowind within Skyrim's engine, with re-build environments, textures, models and more. The latest update video shows just…

Morrowind Overhaul OpenMW Gets New Graphics Engine

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind [official site] was released in 2002. It's testament to how highly regarded the now 13-year-old game is that folks are still determined to keep it alive. OpenMW is one such effort: an open source "engine re-implementation" of Morrowind. It's still some ways from being finished, but the released build has just received an extensive update.

Skyblivion! Gawp At The Skyrim Remake Of Oblivion

Skyblivion! Graham contends that Skywind has the best name of old Elder Scrolls games being remade in Skyrim, but the Oblivion remake feels more fun on the tongue to me. Skyblivion! Remaking a land that took a whole professional studio to build the first time around is no mean feat, but the modders behind Skywind and Skyblivion [official site] are still working away. Recent videos…

Modular Scrolls: Skyblivion Is Oblivion Remade In Skyrim

Speaking personally, I find The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to be the weakest game of its storied lineage, but that doesn't mean I think it was bad by any means. The prospect of exploring its world of idyllic countrysides, tastefully mudcrab-dappled waters, and screaming fire eyeball portals to hell remains an attractive one, and I'll be especially keen to do so if Skyblivion sees the…

Lord Of The Cringe: Oblivion’s Prequel Adventure

Yes, yes, Oblivion has long stepped aside and given Skyrim the spotlight, and Prequel - also known as Making A Cat Cry: The Adventure - has been around for a while. It's been brought to my attention that not everyone knows about it though, so here's why you should check it out.

Perky: Skyrim’s Ability And Skill Info-Splurge

Bethesda haven't officially documented all the various skills, abilities and perks due to crop up in their now not-too-distant game of roles, but keen-eyed Men Of The Internet have been poring over every screenshot, preview and public demo (including last week's Eurogamer Expo, at which Skyrim was drawing mega-queues) they can lay their meta-hands on in order to compile this long and growing list of…

Bethesda And Notch’s Scrolls-Off Explained

While Minecraft creator Marcus 'Notch' Persson remains an avowed fan of Bethesda games, the legal argy-bargy between the Elder Documents publisher and Notch's company Mojang over its forthcoming second game 'Scrolls' doesn't look like dying down any time soon. In fact, the big B has stepped up its efforts, announcing its intention to sue Mojang in a Swedish court, as well as a demand for…

Skyrim: Back To Morrowind’s Weirdness?

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. Todd Howard, lead blokey on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, has fessed up that last game Oblivion ditched a bit of the wonderful oddness of its marvellous predecessor Morrowind - and that this is something Bethesda hopes to correct in Skyrim.
