Fans remastering Morrowind give another glimpse of its landscape

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

It's been a while since we've checked in on Skywind the enormous remastering of The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind being done by fans. On Thursday, the project team put out another video, this one depicting Sheogorad.

Skywind re-renders Morrowind (released 2002) with the engine used for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim (released 2011). For those who know their Elder Scrolls geography, Sheogorad is a remote, largely uninhabited archipelago comprising some 36 islands north of Vvardenfell, the main setting of Morrowind.

This location does not appear in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, but an island somewhat near it, Solstheim, does, in the Dragonborn downloadable extension for that game.

"We wanted to give this region new assets to help it stand out from other areas of Morrowind, and in turn, have changed its original formations," Skywind's creators said in comments underneath the video.

Skywind rolled out its first public alpha in the summer, though that was since pulled back because of its "very alpha state." When the game launches it will feature two hours of original music in its score.
