After all these years, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim continues to be the gift that keeps on giving, largely due to its amazing modding community.
Without question, Skyrim is one of the most influential fantasy RPG games of all time, though I’m more of a The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion guy. Originally released in 2011, and then later to a variety of platforms over the years, dedicated fans are breathing new life into Skyrim whether it be new via story content, gameplay overhauls, or a visual upgrade.

While Dark Souls and Bloodborne developer FromSoftware most certainly marches to the beat of its own drum, some could argue that the gorgeous fantasy world of the Lands Between in Elden Ring may in some part be inspired by Skyrim. Though in truth, many could probably draw any number of inspirations from Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls series.
However, the fantastic mod that is today’s topic of discussion is openly inspired by Elden Ring and it’s one that you should check out. The mod in question is created by Nimwraith (with the help of ChakraSSE) and is called 'The Hunt for the Spectre'. It not only adds a new questline with multiple endings, but new locations and armour too.
“The Hunt for the Spectre is a quest mod revolving around Ren (voiced by Alex Cain) and his hunt for a necromantic serial killer dubbed 'the Spectre'. As you progress through this encounter-based quest mod, you'll edge ever closer to putting a stop to the killer and giving his victims the peace they deserve. Along the way, you'll learn more about Ren and his motivations for hunting down this killer,” reads the description of the mod now available for free via Nexusmods.
“The mod features multiple endings depending on the player's actions and if they complete a certain task. Furthermore, custom assets are used to really immerse the player in a brand new experience,” it continues. “The mod's writing takes heavy inspiration from Elden Ring and the Souls series as a whole and this whole mod is basically a tribute to D, from Elden Ring.” At this time, this mod is only available on PC.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is currently available on just about every gaming platform imaginable.
