The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Summary
Another month goes by, and another impressive slice of gameplay footage is released by theteam, currently hard at work on their Morrowind-to-Skyrim conversion.
Videos like this are a bit of a nostalgia rush for me - look, there's the Red Mountain, there's Azura's Coast, oh god there's one of those hideous parastic worms. I'd almost forgotten just how alien and strange the world of Morrowind is. I'd almost wish we'd head back there in the nextgame, but on second thought it's probably time for something new. Anyway, if Bethesda did decide to revisit, that would kind of undermine the astonishing amount of work put into this mod, wouldn't it?
Fallout 4 might be on the horizon, but you shouldn't expect to see an entry in Bethesda's other flagship open worldfor quite some time yet.
The company's PR and marketing head Pete Hines explained as much in a chatduring Gamescom, saying that it would be a “very long time” until we see anything regarding The Elder Scrolls 6.
Bizarrely, Bethesda’s fantasy epiconce features mourning and haunting mechanics for NPCs, meaning that a slaughtered civilian could come back as spectre and follow their relatives around.
This only worked for one NPC in the entire game world, and not at all for high-profile characters. For whatever reason, Bethesda eventually binned the systems, but modder Vagonumero12 overhas restored the cut content. Here’s what’s been added:
It's not just theguys that are busy creating a huge total conversion for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, there's also a massive fan project to recreate in the game's Creation engine.
In fact, the 'Skyblivion' team has just released a fairly colossal 45-minute gameplay trailer, showing a lot of riding around on a horse, through some admittedly very pretty environments.
As much fun as Bethesda's 2011 fantasy epicwas, it's impossible to deny that the game contained more than a few bugs. Fortunately, the developer promises that lessons learned during its development will be used to improve the upcoming Fallout 4.
