Fifteen Years of Morrowind

Published

 on

Yesterday, May 1, 2017, marked the fifteen-year anniversary of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

To honor the birthday of the game that redefined roleplaying games (RPG), Bethesda Softworks tweeted an image of the development team behind Morrowind. That tweet and image can be seen below.

In addition, Bethesda tweeted the game’s original trailer from back in 2002, the year the game released for PC and Xbox:

Over the years, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind has received unwavering support from dedicated fans. Many of these fans have created and published various modifications for arguably the most popular Elder Scrolls game of the series. These mods have ranged from graphical enhancements to the implementation of new weapons and armor.

Fans of The Elder Scrolls franchise have been aching for a remastered version of Morrowind for years. The celebration of Morrowind’s fifteen-year anniversary has only served to reinforce this desire. Unfortunately, Bethesda has remained relatively silent about the topic. No official remastered version of Morrowind has been announced.

However, the most ambitious fan-made modification project, dubbed the TESRenewal Project, seeks to not only remaster Morrowind, but upgrade the game altogether in the form of Skywind. This upgrade to Morrowind’s graphics, UI, and gameplay will use The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s Creation Engine. Players who play this revised version of the game will require legitimate copies of both Morrowind and Skyrim in order to run the mod properly.

The same group of diehard fans are also working on an upgrade for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion titled Skyblivion.

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind released in May 2002 for PC in North America and Europe. An Xbox version of the game was released in June and November 2002 in North America and Europe respectively. Morrowind received favorable reviews from both fans and critics, and remains one of the most popular RPGs to date.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
