Skyrim: Lordbound adds '60 hours' of new content, and it's free

Skyrim: Lordbound adds '60 hours' of new content, and it's free

The upcoming Skyrim: Lordbound mod adds 40 new quests and 50 new dungeons, totalling over 60 hours of new content.

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, the Skyrim modding community is positively unmatched. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim released all the way back in 2011 and yet, to this day, our playthroughs remain varied and interesting all thanks to the creativity, skill, and talent of the game’s incredible modders.

Recent examples include adding a bunch of new deadly traps to Skyrim’s dungeons, or there’s Brigands of Skyrim which adds new enemies. While these mods are on a small to moderate scale, today I bring you something much larger that should keep you busy for a while. Well, actually, it should keep you busy for around 60 hours. That’s the estimated length of the fantastic Skyrim: Lordbound mod which will be totally totally free to download.

The Elder Scrolls VI is still a distant dream, but we can relive the magic of the original reveal trailer.

Did you note the ‘will be’? As reported by DSOGaming, Skyrim: Lordbound is an upcoming DLC-sized mod that’s being created by the aptly titled Lordbound Dev Team. It will add a new region that’s said to be three square kilometers, with over - prepare yourself - 40 new quests and 50 new dungeons. Oh my. All in all, devs reckon it’ll take players over 60 hours to see all that Lordbound has to offer if they check out both main and side quests.

That’s not all. One of the main quests promises to be the largest main quest players ever will have experienced in Skyrim. That’s quite a promise and one that I cannot wait to see fulfilled. Your choices are also said to have an impact on the outcome and ‘state’ of the DLC area - and Lordbound will boast an original soundtrack and voiced NPCs. What more could you possibly ask for?

The mod has been in development for a whopping six years. The only issue is, we have no idea when it’s due to be released. The devs are still hard at work so all we can really do is leave them to it, with the knowledge that one day, we’ll be able to dive into this apparent masterpiece.
