‘Skyrim’ Overhaul Makes One Of The Game’s Best Areas Even Better
The Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim is truly the game that keeps giving. While Bethesda fans might be excited to see the sixth entry in this long-running RPG series, the fifth title, which is celebrating its 10th Anniversary in November with a new-gen edition for Xbox Series S and PlayStation 5, is being constantly improved, improved, and sometimes smashed to bits by a passionate modding group.
The improved category includes this mod for Falkreath. PCGamesN highlighted the mod by JPSteel2 which transforms the southwesterly town into a stunningly renovated location, worthy of any new-gen upgrade. This mod gives Falkreath some personality, distinguishing it from other similar settlements in the region.
The Falkreath mod is part of JPSteel2’s Cities of the North series of them. You can find it on Nexus Mods. The modder wrote: “Cities Of the North is my project. I want to create a custom tileset of each of the four minor towns – Dawnstar, Morthal, Falkreath, Winterhold. Although there are many updates available on the Nexus for each city, I have never felt that any of them was unique.
“The only difference between these four major ones and the five major ones lies in their unique architecture. Solitude, Whiterun and Riften have strong visual identities. You can instantly tell if you’re in the Reach or Rift by simply looking at the buildings. The hold capitals, which were made only of farmhouses, had no identity independent of the overhaul used. I tried the same thing for them.
The Falkreath mod brings new interiors and exteriors to the city. You can find more details about the mod at the Nexus link. These screenshots show the mod’s impact on the otherwise very similar city.
ICYMI, the PS5/X/S version Skyrim will be released on November 11, 2021 – exactly 10 year after it was first released for PC, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. I was there and still have my promo copy. How can it have been a decade since the original release of Skyrim for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360?
I have said it before, and I will say it again: I love mods. The modders and creators of mods can give games an extra boost beyond their normal lifespan. Skyrim is the only game that has survived beyond its natural lifespan. The game’s popularity is still high despite being almost ten years old. This is partly due to modders.
According to the Dark Side of Gaming there’s now a massive mod that allows you to fight all-new creatures. Mihail has added a large pack of highly detailed and impressive ghouls for you to fight. This pack includes everything you need to fight the Goblins and Minotaurs.
This pack includes 132 creatures, 22 weapons and 11 spells. It also contains 41 new ingredients and 35 new areas. This pack contains a lot new content, and all of it breathes fresh air into SKryim. The Elder Scrolls is the inspiration for this pack, but it also contains monsters from other lore such as Dungeons.
The pack can be downloaded and checked out on Nexus Mods . However, this only works for Legacy Edition Skyrim. A Special Edition update will follow.
You might be still waiting for an official Bethesda update to Skyrim . As I mentioned earlier, the game will be turning ten this year. Bethesda felt it was the right time to update the content with Skyrim anniversary Edition. The experience will include fishing and a lot of new content from the “Creation Club”. It will be released on November 11th, and we are eagerly awaiting its arrival.
