The Elder Scrolls Skyblivion has received a major development update

Skyblivion – The Oblivion Remake within Skyrim – will launch in 2025 “at the latest”

Skyblivion is on the road to release, the fan-made remaster of The Elders Scrolls Oblivion that recreates the classic within Skyrim’s engine with enhanced visuals, improved controls, and new gameplay mechanics. Currently, the mod is due to launch in 2025, at the latest, and the team behind the mod have just released a major development update for the project. 

So far, six of the nine regions of Cyrodiil have been completed, with 3632 cells of the game’s 4391 total cells being completed. Around 40% of the game’s 600 interiors have also been completed, one third of the game’s navigational mesh has been completed, and around half of the game’s quests are now playable.

A lot of work has been completed to create Skyblivion in its current state, with the project being well into its “home stretch” development-wise. As always, the Skyblivion team are looking for new volunteers who can help assist with the mod’s development, people who can potentially accelerate the mod’s release. Modders who are interested in joining the project can apply to join here.

Skyblivion is a project that is being created by a large team of volunteers in their spare time. The mod is a passion project that has brought many talented modders together to create something that Bethesda wouldn’t. The trailer below showcases the fruit of this teams efforts, and it is impressive.

Below is what the Skyblivion team had to say about their mod earlier this year when they revealed the mod’s planned release timeframe.

   Oblivion Remade in the Skyrim engine. Remaking Oblivion in the Skyrim engine is what we set out to do when we started the Skyblivion project. Making games takes time, this goes double for a volunteer project the size of a AAA game that took a team of fulltime DEVS years to make. Regardless we would like to share today that Skyblivion is in a state where we can promise a 2025 release at the latest. We hope with your support to finish the final steps in completing our dream, maybe even beating our own estimation.
