Skyblivion makes Oblivion looks downright gorgeous thanks to Skyrim engine

Friday, 16th May 2014 16:07 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Picture in your mind what The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion would look like if it were developed using the Skyrim engine. Lovely, right? And indeed it is, thanks to TESRenewal, the folks behind the Skywind and Morroblivion mods. Below, is a video showing the conversion’s progress thanks to volunteers.

Not that Oblivion was dull or looked like bunk or anything, but it looks rather smashing when brought up to date.

Skyblivion started in March 2013 and is still in development build only, so the more people who contribute to development, the faster we can get our grubby paws on it.

Development of Skywind, which is Morrowind revamped using the Skyrim engine, is still in development and has a rather large team attached to it.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    Not going to lie but I can hardly tell the difference.

    Sorry but it looks EXACTLY like a PC version of Oblivion.

    and Skyrim Engine is the same as Oblivion and even Morrowind Steph. You are so wrong here. :P

    I am with you on the fact that this is not really a massive leap in visuals as yes they are basically the same engine. But there is subtle differences, the lighting for one is better, and some of the textures look sharper. But honestly that is it, nothing that can’t be done in the original version of Oblivion with a few texture mods and and ENB.

    There are quite a few differences if you compare this to the un-modded Oblivion, they are actually quite visible. I’m guessing this will support mods as well? Its gonna be interesting to see what comes of it.

    Who cares? Oblivion was far worse than Morrowind and even Skyrim. Move along.
