Beyond Skyrim is a massive multi-team mod project that opens the borders and brings Skyrim’s neighboring provinces to life. No longer will you be turned back at the borders of Skyrim, but you can travel onwards to the lands beyond.

Anyone who played Bethesda’s massive hit Skyrim constantly heard NPCs talking about the eight other countries outside the game’s borders, but you couldn’t actually visit these places. One modding community is working to change that.

Beyond Skyrim is a fan-made, unofficial expansion pack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which aims to allow players to visit every corner of Tamriel…[Read more]

Beyond Skyrim is a series of in-development mods that seek to add lands… well, Beyond Skyrim, to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Now, thanks to a new trailer, we have some idea of what one of these mods will look like: Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil, which deals with the country seen in TES IV: Oblivion…[Read more]

Sometimes 200-plus hours of adventure isn’t quite enough. Case in point – The Elder Scrolls modding community. Home to some of the most ambitious and awe-inspiring add-on content in modern gaming, the scene remains as vibrant today as it was back when Skyrim first released in 2011, or when Oblivion debuted before that…[Read more]

Cyrodiil: The Seat of Sundered Kings

Bring back the Counties of the Empire and its environs. Enjoy the lavish delights of Imperial City or plunge into the depths and discover the secrets of the ancient Ayleids.

Iliac Bay: Tower of Dawn

Explore the legendary streets of Sentinel in Hammerfell, experience the rugged beauty of Orsinium or find adventure in the City of Daggerfall. The team for Iliac Bay is working hard to bring the lands of Hammerfell and High Rock to life.

Elsweyr: Sugar and Blood

Cross the border into the Aldmeri Dominion, and visit the Khajiiti kingdoms of Anequina and Pelletine, a diverse series of landscapes that ranges from nomad-travelled steppes to tropical rainforest. Undertake a deeply personal, perhaps even spiritual, journey to the deep south of Tamriel as your character gets immersed in the culture and mindset of the Khajiit nation and joins in their fight against an extremely subtle and insidious enemy.

Black Marsh: The Roots of the World

The swamps of Black Marsh hold many mysteries. The Saxleel, known as Argonians, know the way of this alien place, but brave souls will find much to explore here.

Roscrea: Voices of the Deep

A small island in the Sea of Ghosts is home to the people of Roscrea. The hardy warrior folk are fierce and proud.

Morrowind: The Star-Wounded East

There is no doubt the Dunmer have suffered. The eruption of Red Mountain and the Argonian Invasion have left Morrowind scarred and its people scattered. But you would be wrong in thinking the land empty. Danger stirs in the ash, and the Great Houses plot and plan.

Beyond Skyrim will also bring to life the varied deserts of Anequina, the forests of Valenwood, the Coral Kingdom of Thras and the Blessed Isle of Alinor.

Stay tuned.
