The team behind Skyblivion has released a brand new teaser trailer for it. In case you weren’t aware of, Skyblivion is an Oblivion total conversion mod for Skyrim. While there isn’t any release date yet, this latest teaser trailer will give you a glimpse at the visuals of the latest build for this mod.
As the developers stated, the exterior world map is nearing its final stages of development. Moreover, creatures, flora, weapons, armors and 3D assets in general are being implemented and produced at a rapid pace. As such, the world is starting to feel alive. The game now also features wild animals walking about and monsters trying to kill you at every corner. Quests have also made some great progress though a lot of debugging still needs to be done to make everything work as smoothly as possible.
As i wrote in my previous article, I was really curious how the team would be able to address Oblivion’s blurry LOD issue. And from what I can see in the trailer, TESRenewal has cleverly used a Depth of Field effect. This effect blurs the distant textures, making the game feel somehow better than original Oblivion.
Skyblivion looks absolutely spectacular. It looks so good that someone could have easily mistaken it for an official remake of Oblivion. It is THAT good.
Let’s hope that TESRenewal will release a demo or a trail version sooner than later. Until then, enjoy the following trailer!
