Work on fan-made Morrowind-into-Skyrim mod Skywind continues apace, and the team behind the ambitious project have just released a new trailer showing off one of the regions players will be able to hunt mudcrabs in.

The region in question is the island chain of Sheogorad, which looks a bit... brown. That's okay though! It fits in perfectly with Morrowind's grimy, ash-strewn aesthetic.
