The team behind Beyond Skyrim has released a new trailer for its total conversion mod that aims to bring the world of Morrowind and Cyrodiil to Skyrim. Beyond Skyrim is described as a massive multi-team mod project that opens the borders and brings Skyrim’s neighboring provinces to life.
Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil is part of Beyond Skyrim project and will bring back the Counties of the Empire and its environments. Players will experience the lavish delights of Imperial City or plunge into the depths and discover the secrets of the ancient Ayleids.
Here are the key features of Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil:
A Broken Land – Explore Cyrodiil as you have never seen it before. Whether you are traversing the snow-covered Jerall Mountains, haggling with the many merchants of the Imperial City, or exploring the lush Gold Coast, you will experience the changes of the 200 years since the events of Oblivion. Cyrodiil is a land scarred by the recent Great War and the tribulations of an Empire in decline. Carve out your legend in this shattered land.
Adventure Calls – Cyrodiil is a land filled with adventure. Whether you join the Fighters Guild, the College of Whispers or the Thieves Guild, expect a tightly-woven narrative with plenty of player choice and consequence. And, as you explore the world, prepare to partake in a bounty of equally interesting side quests. Cyrodiil is a land just waiting for you to conquer its challenges.
The Seat of Sundered Kings– As the Empire is in decline and political conflict ensues, wade into the conflict. Pick a side. Crown an Emperor.
The Knights of the Nine– While the Empire collapses and Tamriel’s denizens bicker, an ancient and deadly evil awakens within the depths of the Ayleid ruin of Ninendava. Will you be able to contain this threat before it undoes Cyrodiil itself? Or will Cyrodiil fall once again to ancient masters?
A Whole Armory of New Gear – Cyrodilic armor, weapons and clothing are vastly different from the Nordic designs of Skyrim. Loot or buy Cyrodilic gear during your adventure. A veritable armory of new gear awaits.
Professional Voice Acting – With voice actors from such titles as Dust: An Elysian Tail, Wasteland 2 and Heroes of Newerthand incredibly careful writing and narrative design, expect to interact with some of the most colorful, diverse and rich characters ever seen in The Elder Scrolls.
A Polished, Cohesive Experience – Cyrodiil is brought to life with an entirely new original soundtrack, full voice acting, a whole bestiary of new creatures and a whole library’s worth of original, lore-friendly and tirelessly quality-controlled new in-game books.
