A new gameplay video has been released for Skywind, a fan-made remake of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The video showcases a quest called Necromancer in Mawia and highlights new creatures, environments, spells, and assets, all built from the ground up. This is the first Skywind video since 2022, which marked the 20th anniversary of the original Morrowind.
Long Development Time
Skywind has been in development since 2012 by the team at The Elder Scrolls Renewal. It’s referred to as a “total conversion” mod, meaning that it’s a complete remake rather than just a simple port. The team behind Skywind is also known for working on Skyblivion and Morrowblivion, remakes of Oblivion and Morrowind in the Skyrim and Oblivion engines respectively.
Despite the length of its development time, Skywind doesn’t have a release date just yet. The team is comprised of volunteers, and as such, development has moved slowly. However, the aim is to create a high-quality product, and there is an open call for extra contributors to help push the project to the finish line.
User-Created Content and Mods
One of the reasons the Elder Scrolls games have remained so popular over the years is the extensive support they receive from the modding community. Players are encouraged to create their own content, including new quests, items, and even entire new worlds. This has led to countless hours of enjoyment for players and has helped keep the games fresh and exciting for years beyond their initial release date.
Skywind is just one example of the creativity and dedication of the modding community. It’s created by fans, for fans, and showcases the dedication, hard work, and love of players who want to see these beloved games remastered and brought up to modern standards.
A Nostalgic Journey
In the gaming community, there’s a sense of nostalgia for games from the past, particularly for games that hold a special place in players’ hearts. Morrowind is undoubtedly one such game, having been released in 2002 and still being played and enjoyed by many today.
Skywind offers a chance for players to revisit this classic game in a new and updated way. The new assets and improved graphics, combined with the same memorable story and characters, provide a fresh take on a game that many know and love.
