The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion remake is proceeding nicely, but fans will have to wait until next year to get their hands on the final product. In the meantime, the 100% volunteer development team has uploaded an updated production diary previewing what the remake has in full after the release date.

We’ve all seen a sneak peek at the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion remaster, Skyblivion, during the 2024 Community Creations Con. However, the quick look we’ve been given was only the tip of the iceberg once you’ve seen the progress report the developers included in their latest diary entry on YouTube.

This relatively brief video showcases the greatest strength of this unofficial remaster of the fourth chapter in The Elder Scrolls franchise: handcrafted locations. For instance, each of the three forests in the North of Oblivion have been recreated one by one, from the terrain to the individual trees populating the groves.

Many features in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion have also been remade to reflect some updates done on similar aspects in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For instance, the birth sign component of the character creation process now offers an animated menu instead of the list that came with the original version.

In addition, players can also build their own character class with their own perk settings if they’re not happy with the presets that the remake offers.

Indeed, there are plenty of great perks to look forward to once Skyblivion finally rolls out sometime next year. Just like the C3 preview, this brief update dives only about a few feet down to the figurative iceberg that is called Skyblivion.
