New Skywind gameplay shows just how impressive the Morrowind rebuilt in Skyrim mod is shaping up to be

Writ large.

The people behind Skywind have released a gameplay demo of the mod - and it's pretty impressive.

The gameplay video, below, shows off how the modders have recreated Morrowind in the Skyrim engine. We see the player pick up a bounty in town, head off out into the wild and into a dungeon to kill the target before returning for a reward.
