Major Skyrim mod Enderal finally gets a launch trailer — and release window (update)

Fans of Elder Scrolls conversion mods, get excited

Update (Aug. 15): An English language version of the trailer was released today. Link is here. The mod is now available for free from here.

Enderal, a total conversion mod for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, will launch this July, developer SureAI announced. The free overhaul for Bethesda Game Studios' massive open-world game will introduce a unique world and story along with reworked gameplay mechanics.

As Skyrim devotees may notice in the trailer above, SureAI is releasing the mod in German first. That's due sometime between July 1-3, the developer noted on its website. The English version will arrive at most two weeks later, at which point players can expect to get anywhere from another 30-100 hours of play out of Skyrim.

The mod's been in the works since 2013, when SureAI announced it was working on a follow-up to Nehrim: At Fate's Edge. Nehrim is one of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion's best known modifications, and also introduces a new setting and storyline to the role-playing game. As the sequel to 2010's Nehrim, Enderal will take place in both the same location and universe as its predecessor, albeit with a new continent and other expansions.

Both are, in essence, new games that utilize the existing assets of The Elder Scrolls titles. They feature dozens of professional voice actors, original pieces of score, new weapons and other additions. The mod is currently slated for the Windows PC version of Skyrim, but considering the upcoming special edition remaster will bring mod support to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, time will tell if Enderal will be accessible on consoles as well.
