Skyrim: Lordbound finally launching after 10 years, is a huge free expansion

An enormous expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is finally on the way, and it's taken around a decade of development time to make.

Skyrim is truly the gift that keeps on giving, not just because Bethesda re-releases the thing whenever the wind is blowing in the right direction but because it’s got a massive community of modders on a mission to keep the game alive.

Take a look at one Skyrim graphics mod below.

Some of these mods can be quality-of-life improvements, some can be silly reskins that turn dragons into Thomas The Tank Engine, and some can give players new options in the RPG, like marrying Serena, the vampire lady from the DLC. However, sometimes a mod rolls around that changes everything, and allows players to embark on an entirely new adventure with an original storyline.

I’m, of course, talking about expansion mods which often introduce a new area players can explore, complete with more characters, quests, and treasures to find. One such expansion mod is called Lordbound, and after around a decade of development, it’s finally on its way for PC players.

Simply put, Lordbound is the biggest expansion Skyrim has ever seen. When it launches, it’ll bring with it around 50 new quests, 50 dungeons, a storyline longer than the base game as well as brand-new items and game mechanics. The characters you’ll meet are fully voice acted and in total, the developer promises around 60 hours of new content to enjoy.

It’s taken a long time for the expansion to come anywhere close to being completed, though recently one of the modders, Kiria, said: “I can say with a medium-high amount of confidence that we’re targeting a late 2024 release date.”

Hopefully that promise comes to fruition, as Lordbound looks to be the ultimate expansion for Bethesda’s critically-acclaimed RPG, and potentially a successor given how much new content it plans to add to the game.
