New Skyblivion trailer shows Cyrodiil's Imperial City remade in Skyrim

Skyblivion, the massive mod project to recreate Oblivion in Skyrim's engine, has released a new trailer (above) called "Glory of Cyrodiil" and it's four minutes of spectacular scenery guaranteed to keep Elder Scrolls fans transfixed. The trailer gives us a nice long look at Imperial City, Anvil, and other locations including Ayelid ruins. And that's not all.

"You will be able to spot new colorful weathers, new trees and flora, new clothing, new custom designed weapons, NPC schedules, remade textures and models, custom made creatures using custom behaviors and animations," reads the video's description. "Also, if you listen closely you will also be able to hear part of the new OST."

There's still no release date for the volunteer-based mod project, though quest progress will be shown in a future charity livestream. You can visit Skyblivion's official site here.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
