The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind gets the Unreal Engine 5 remake we deserve

The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind gets the Unreal Engine 5 remake we deserve

This Elder Scrolls: Morrowind remake powered by Unreal Engine 5 is awesome

Perhaps no developer can craft fantastical open-worlds and RPG stories quite like Bethesda with the likes of Fallout, The Elder Scrolls and more.

Fans have been desperate for the next release in the fantasy RPG series, The Elder Scrolls for a while. After all, The Elder Scrolls VI was first announced at E3 in 2018 and since that time, Bethesda hasn't even given us a release date let alone any gameplay footage.

Check out The Elder Scrolls VI trailer below!

Sure, we know that The Elder Scrolls VI is on the way but its release could still be years from now. There have been rumours that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is getting a remake, but that hasn't been officially confirmed by Bethesda at the time of writing but it is expected to arrive before the sixth numbered entry.

I guess for the foreseeable future, we’ll still have to make do with 2012’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which isn't a bad thing, let’s be honest. However, before the likes of Oblivion, Skyrim and the illusive The Elder Scrolls VI, there was another and it was 2002’s The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

It’s been well over two decades since the release of Morrowind and given that fact, I think it’s fair to say that if one game deserves a remake in this iconic series, it’s this one. Whether Morrowind ever receives the official remake that it deserves, remains to be seen.

That being said, a talented indie developer has taken matters into his own hands to create a glorious Morrowind remake powered by the all-mighty Unreal Engine 5. The talented modder in question is named Mica Olsson and the impressive remake uploaded to his YouTube channel showcases some of the environments of Morrowind.

If you’re interested, Mica Olsson’s YouTube channel also features Cafe 5to2 from the original Silent Hill, also recreated using Unreal Engine 5. None of the remakes from Mica Olsson are playable, unfortunately, but it’s fair to say that he’s somewhat of an environment specialist when it comes to Unreal Engine 5.

Hopefully, we’ll get even more Unreal Engine remakes from Mica Olsson in the future and I’d love to see some environmental interactions. We’ll have our fingers crossed.
