I’m laying down to recover health by bathing my photosynthetic skin in the sun when my evil twin leaps from a portal and starts firing a laser pistol at me. I’m about to conjure a couple of fireballs before my narcolepsy kicks in at the worst time. Just another day in Caves of Qud. It’s this week’s Indie Pick.
Today Bethesda announced a new expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online. The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will add the island of Vvardenfell to the game, allowing players to explore the iconic setting from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
Skywind, part of the Elder Scrolls Renewal project, aims to recreate Morrowind in Skyrim’s engine. It has been in development since 2012 and probably won’t be ready for a while. To help cope with that fact, I look at the team’s progress videos as mere instances of 3D Morrowind fan art. So let’s look at some fan art!
Morrowind, the third Elder Scrolls RPG, has a rich and somewhat complicated story. Luckily, now we have a Facebook timeline to simplify it all. Humorously.
So fluffy, so excellent.
Nearly all the Scrolls games talk up great battles, but you never actually get to fight one. Now there's a Medieval II: Total War: Kingdoms mod to change that.
Sadly, the "real" Ashlands of Vvardenfell never quite looked so pretty. At least not in-game in Morrowind. Ogilac's "Ashland" shows us what the Red Mountain and its surroundings might look like when the place isn't covered in ash storms—it's quite the visual treat. Shoot down those cliff racers and it's perfect.
Dark elves are pretty sweet, you know? They're like elves, only cooler.
Skywind, the ambitious mod which seeks to transplant The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind into the much more technologically advanced Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, is getting a public developer alpha release soon, according to its latest trailer.
Recently, Todd Howard of Bethesda Game Studios sat down for an interview with Germany-based Gamestar about Munich, bratwurst, and a game very special to his heart: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
"Perhaps" because it's not like I've seen every mod for Morrowind. Someone might have come up with something better in the past, even with the limitations of an old PC game like Morrowind. But yeah, these look great.
You've probably seen Skywind, the ambitious fan project to re-create all of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in Skyrim. Here's a new trailer for Skyblivion, which, as you might have guessed, is the ambitious fan project to re-create all of Oblivion in Skyrim.
Good times alert: this is another new clip for Skywind, the fan project aiming to recreate the third Elder Scrolls game using the engine from the fifth.
The team behind Skywind, a fan project aimed at transferring Morrowind to the SKyrim engine, have released another trailer. Thanks, guys. Not like I needed the extra sense of longing.
Making weapon replicas, or building armor sets from Skyrim, or any other Elder Scrolls game is one thing, but creating a whole shelf of Elder Scrolls potions, scrolls and books is some next level stuff. Here's Faasnu's shelf, featuring tons of potions and even the Mysterium Xarxes from TES IV: Oblivion.
"Some modders are making Morrowind in the Skyrim engine," they said. It's looking really good. And I listened to them, I did. But it wasn't until I saw these screens that I believed it.
The team of Elder Scrolls fans working on Skywind—the project bringing Morrowind into the series' most modern engine—released their first development video yesterday. It's five breathtaking minutes of the massive effort needed to properly bring a beloved 12-year-old game into present day.
