Skyrim engine does wonders for Oblivion’s Cyrodiil

Skyblivion is the lesser-known cousin of Skywind, bringing a graphical upgrade to The Elder Scrolls’ fourth major outing.

The Skyblivion team has released new footage of the mod project, showing off how the Imperial province of Cyrodiil looks in Skyrim’s engine.

The project is still in the early stages, so what you’re looking at here – version 0.2 – is pretty rough. The draw distance in particular is a known bug.

Although it’ll be a long time before you can experience this for yourself, you can recreate it somewhat with a parcel of the component mods used to put the video together. See the YouTube description for a list with links.
