The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, one of the most popular Elder Scrolls games to date, is being remade by dedicated fans using Skyrim’s Creation Engine.
Fans of the Elder Scrolls series have begged for a remastered version of Morrowind for years. As of yet, Bethesda Softworks, the primary publisher of the series, has declined a remake of the popular Elder Scrolls title. However, a group of dedicated fans have come together to make the dream of a Morrowind remake come true. Dubbed Skywind, the fan-made remake will be recreated using the Creation Engine that made Skyrim‘s superior graphics and animation possible.
The remake itself will be free, but will require legitimate copies of both The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to play. Pirated copies, as explained in the FAQ section on the project’s website, will experience problems. For more information, visit the link provided above.
Skywind is not the only project on which the team over at TES Renewal is working. Also in progress is a remake of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, dubbed Skyblivion. However, information on this project is extremely scarce, as the team’s main focus seems to be Skywind, but based on their approach to Skywind, one can probably put together most of what needs to be known about Skyblivion.
Since its debut with Arena in 1994, The Elder Scrolls franchise has captivated gamers with its action-packed fantasy world and its in-depth lore. From its intricate cultures portrayed by ten different playable races (Argonians, Bretons, Dark Elves, High Elves, Imperials, Khajiit, Nords, Orcs, and Wood Elves) to the depiction of war, magic, political intrigue, and exploration, The Elder Scrolls offers a riveting experience for gamers and story-lovers alike.
Bethesda Softworks, subsidiary of ZeniMax Media since 1999, is the primary publisher of The Elder Scrolls series. The company was founded by Christopher Weaver in 1986 as a division of Media Technology Limited. In 2001, Bethesda Softworks became a publisher only, moving its development team into a division called Bethesda Game Studios.
