The next Oblivion of the Greater Scrolls fully-inside fan-built remake skyrim just got a big update, as the RPG looks more and more like a great way to wait for the Elder Scrolls 6 release date. So if the lovechild of Oblivion and Skyrim, naturally named Skyblivion, is of your interest, you’ll want to see this.
Ever since we learned more about Skyblivion’s release date earlier this year along with an absolutely colossal gameplay reveal, we’ve been eagerly waiting to hear more about the fan-made remake of Oblivion being integrated into Skyrim. With Elder Scrolls coming out in 2028 at the earliest, this seems like an excellent stopgap solution.
The project began development in 2012, right after the release of Skyrim, with the goal of 2025 at the latest for the release of Skyblivion as well. This big update from the Skyblivion team focuses on the world map, indoor locations, 3D assets, and missions, all of which you can check out below.
Of the nine regions in Oblivion’s Cyrodiil, only three remain to be completed, with hundreds of individual cells landscaped and placed in the world to make it feel as alive as possible. The team has completed 3,632 cells of the 4,391 total for the game, leaving only the final stretch.
Only a third of Skyblivion has the navigation mesh built in so far, allowing creatures to roam freely and battles to unfold, but this means that NPCs and quests in these areas are fully functional.
With over 600 interiors in the game, the Skyblivion team has completed around 40% of them, while the 2,500 3D objects need to be completely rebuilt and 615 remain to be done. The team says it could borrow some from Skyrim, but many of them just won’t fit in the world space.
There are also a whopping 199 missions, with around half of them playable and the rest still needing to be finished. If it wasn’t already clear, the Skyblivion team has been working very hard to remaster the fourth Elder Scrolls in Skyrim, but there is still a lot to do. All DLC will be considered only after the Skyblivion base game is complete, so don’t expect Shivering Isles on day one.
If you think you have the skills and time to help out with Skyblivion, the team is always looking for new volunteers, so drop us a line if you’d like to lend a hand.
Remember, you can also play all the Elder Scrolls games through PC Game Pass while you wait.
