Skyrim multiplayer mod is nearly Su Grah Dun

Here's one to put on your Fus Ra-Dar. A Skyrim multiplayer mod is about to enter closed beta, and will soon offer you and up to seven friends the chance to explore the snowy bit of Tamriel together. The devs say the closed beta won't last long, and an open one will be hot on its heels. It is worth bearing in mind that they…

New Elder Scrolls Online expansion brings back the dragons (and also cats)

The Elder Scrolls Online is both an attempt to further the Elder Scrolls formula into something more dynamic and living, and a game that often seems dependent on nostalgia for its continued existence. 2017's Morrowind expansion took us back to Elder Scrolls' finest hour, last year's Summerset was our first return to a land not seen since Arena, the original Scrolls game, and next, here…

Feature: Graphics mods, new NPCs and massive overhauls

All the best Skyrim mods on PC

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is as much a platform for mods as it is an open-world RPG about dumb dragons and dumber Vikings. Over the last seven years, an inconceivable number of them have been crafted, and while plenty have fallen by the wayside, others have become essential mainstays in anyone’s mod library. With Skyrim Special Edition, things got a bit more complicated. Some…

Volcanic renovation abounds in Morrowind-to-Skyrim mod Skywind’s new trailer

Skywind - a grand mod project to rebuild Morrowind using Skyrim's slightly more contemporary tech - may be shooting for the moon, but those stars feel almost within reach thanks to its latest trailer, released yesterday. Taking us on an ominously (and professionally) narrated tour of House Dagoth's volcano-side properties, it's a testament to what a small team can achieve with the right tools, enough…

Massive Skyrim mod Enderal: The Shards of Order will re-launch on Steam

Enderal: The Shards Of Order by SureAI is arguably the most impressive thing to come from The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim's massive mod scene. While it may use Skyrim's engine, it uses it to tell its own story in a new world, fully voiced and expertly produced.  If there was any mod worthy of a high-profile release on Steam alongside Skyrim itself, it'd be Enderal.…

Feature: Norse of a different colour

The allure of Viking fantasies, and the games that cherry-pick them

The Vikings have long ago invaded the coasts of pop culture on their dragon-headed longships and carved out their own Danelaw in the realm of video games. In recent years, they’ve grown even bolder, taking over most genres from RTS to RPG, classic point and click adventure to action, with an utter disregard towards distinctions between AAA and indie. They’ve settled in Hellblade and Frostrune,…

The Forgotten City has me stoked to solve murder-puzzles, again

The Forgotten City, true to the spirit of its theme, is both a game that has yet to be released and is a game that has been available for years. While I've always been one of the few hold-outs that's been annoyingly "meh" about Skyrim, I fired up my copy this week to play through the The Forgotten City, which began as an extensive mod…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Skyrim mod The Forgotten City remade as standalone

The Forgotten City, a time-looping murder mystery which won an Australian Writers Guild Award as a mod for Skyrim, is becoming its own game. Developers Modern Storyteller announced last night that they're "re-imagining" The Forgotten City as a standalone game in Unreal Engine. I missed the mod but this sounds like a fascinating Groundhog Day/The Last Express sort of time-looping mystery, sending us explore and…

The Elder Scrolls VI announced

You will, I am sure, be astonished to hear that Bethesda Game Studios are making another Elder Scrolls game. Today, during their E3 pressblast, they announced that The Elder Scrolls VI is now in pre-production. And... that's about it. The game is a long, long way away, coming after Bethesda's all-new Starfield - which is itself so far out that we don't even know what…

New Beyond Skyrim project promises to go even beyonder to Iliac Bay

A proper modding community can keep a game world alive long after the studio behind that title has put it to pasture. Or, more accurately in this case, when the studio just keeps porting the original game to new devices instead of, you know, making new entries. Skyrim has some of the most in-depth world building teams on the mod market, and instead of merely…

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR has jacked into PC

It's time to hang a pine-scented Little Tree air freshener from your cybergoggs because The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR last night launched on PC, following its console debut in November 2017. It's Skyrim but in VR, yeah? Put your feet in a foot spa while you sit by a river in the rain, hang an old sock over your nose when venturing into Blackreach,…

Fus Vee Ah! Skyrim VR jacking into PC next month

Given that the iconic image of Skyrim is a fella wearing a Knightmare-esque bucket on his head, it's only fitting that Bethesda want you to strap cybergoggles onto your head to enter the fantasy RPG's world. Today they announced a PC release for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, a new standalone version built for cybergoggles. Skyrim VR debuted on PlayStation VR in November 2017,…

Beyond Skyrim: Morrowind mod shows ash-choked land

A new video of Beyond Skyrim: Morrowind, a wildly ambitious upcoming mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, gives a look at its version of lands from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. This isn't one of those mods remaking Morrowind, mind. The wider Beyond Skyrim project wants to revisit lands from older Elder Scrolls games, exploring how they've changed in the hundreds of years since…

Feature: All trailer, no trash

The best PC game trailers ever

The game trailer is a sly creature. It wants to entertain you, to excite you, to embolden you with curiousity. But it also wants to sell you a bunch of code wrapped up in some 3D shapes. Some trailers turn out to be more artful than the game they’re hawking, others plant sneaky emotions in your head with music. However, some are better than others.…
