Skywind, the Morrowind Remake for Skyrim, receives a huge development update

The Skywind team has showcased major progress, but the mod’s release is still a long way off

Today is the 22nd birthday of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and to celebrate the Skywind team has released a major development update for their highly anticipated Skyrim mod.

For the uninitiated, Skywind is a full Morrowind remake that is being created for Skyrim. The mod recreates and reimagines Morrowind with all new assets, full voice acting, and more. The mod is a volunteer-run total conversion mod, which means that the mod will be available for free when it releases.

In their 2024 update video, the Skywind team gives The Elder Scrolls fans a look at “The Road So Far”. The video covers the project’s history, and the mod’s recent progress.

For those who like to dive into the details, figures and percentages are available for each of the mod’s core departments. This reveals what work has been done for the mod, and what still needs to be completed.

Skyrim/Skywind fans rise up!

The work on Skywind remains in-progress, and the team are eager to find new contributors. Currently, Skywind’s progress has some major bottlenecks, which means that new volunteers have the potential to rapidly accelerate the mod’s progress.

As of now, Skywind has no firm release date. The mod team are being intentionally tight-lipped about their exact progress. They don’t want to give the mod’s followers a release date. After all, the mod’s development can be delayed by any number of factors that a beyond the team’s control.

Personally, I am looking forward to the day that Skywind launches. It is clear that a lot of passion has went into this remake, and I am excited to see the results of that effort.
