This is a video of Skyblivion, which is Oblivion in Skyrim

TES thing, TES thing.

Ever wondered what The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion would look built in the newer Skyrim engine? Wonder no more! Skyblivion is what you're looking for.

It's a project by TESRenewal - the Skywind and Morroblivion lot - and there's a new video charting the conversion's largely voluntary-based progress.

The video copies the opening moments of Oblivion, from the prison break out into the open world.

The Skyblivion project began in March 2013, as version 0.1. It's now version 0.2, the FAQ stated. This is a development build only - it's not playable.

When it will be completed will depend on the amount of help the community can give. If you think you can help out, jump into the TESRenewal forum and jolly well say so.

Development of Skywind - Morrowind in the Skyrim engine - is still under way by a separate and "much larger" team.

Great work TESReneweal team!
