Earlier this year, Bethesda announced plans to allow mods for Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim remaster on PS4 and Xbox One, an unprecedented move that made console RPG fans very happy. But now, embarrassingly, it looks like mods will be an Xbox exclusive.
One of the most ambitious mods in Skyrim history, Enderal, is now out in English. It’s really good! But it makes reference to A Certain Inescapable Meme, A Dragon From Our Collective Past, and there’s only one thing that can be done about that.
Way back in 2013, I wrote about a mod called Enderal, a very ambitious attempt at creating an all-new game out of Skyrim’s bones, with a new map, new buildings, new characters, the works. Shockingly, considering the way most of these things usually go, it’s actually finished!
The video that led me to Nick, known on YouTube as the ASMRnerd, was “Soft-Spoken ASMR: Elder Scrolls Maps.” I have no idea how I found it–probably late at night in a semi-conscious YouTube trance. “Join me for a relaxing cartographic journey across Tamriel and its provinces,” the description reads. “Triggers include…
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting a remaster, with a prettier “Special Edition” version of the classic on the way to PS4, Xbox One and PC.
We’re liveblogging Bethesda’s big E3 show, where we expect to see the latest from Dishonored 2, some Fallout, a little Elder Scrolls and maybe some Prey. Who knows? We will, shortly.
Sure, everything might be 1000% harder to do when you’re using a potato controller to get around, but still: it’s silly stunts like these that make us love Skyrim players in the first place.
Time flies. Skyrim has been out for nearly five years, giving its mod scene time to grow and change and then change again. It’s a culture unto itself, one that’s weathered identity crises and that whole money fiasco. So, all these years later, where does it stand?
Today on Highlight Reel we have zombie packing, rocket league goals, running, flying rats, nice spikes and much more!
And now, an epic tale of love and dedication only possible through video games.
iriarsham posted these screenshots over the weekend, to remind us all that despite its advancing years and creaking engine, Skyrim—with help from fans—continues to look absolutely stunning.
Kitnip, who is very good at crafting her own sets of armour, made this excellent Skyrim outfit last year.
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!
On PC, Fallout 4 is an endless sea of possibility. Anything you can imagine, you can probably download as a customization and insert it into the game.
There’s a pretty great easter egg hidden in Fallout 4, and it has some juicy implications about two of Bethesda’s biggest series.
The Steam controller, for all its flaws, is insanely customizable. One user put that versatility to extremely good use.
I couldn’t stop smiling one day in late 2005 as I was led through the darkened basement of Bethesda Softworks toward the little corner unit that was to be my cube. My geek barometer was pinging off the charts. I could scarcely believe that I was there.
