Skyrim looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 in astonishing graphical overhaul

Skyrim looks like Red Dead Redemption 2 in astonishing graphical overhaul

Is this really Skyrim?

When it comes to fun open worlds to explore, not many do it quite as well as the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Despite being nearly a decade apart from release, both The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim from Bethesda and Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 offer huge open worlds to an impressive level that would put most new releases to shame. Players could lose countless hours exploring the worlds providing an immense sense of adventure without even touching the main missions.

One of the main benefits of playing on PC is being able to take advantage of some fantastic mods that may offer brand-new content, restore once-lost content, enhance the visuals or make quality-of-life improvements. In some cases, talented modders will totally overhaul a game making it feel like a completely new experience, such as the mod featured in this story.

Reddit user jackfjdah1 shared an astonishing gameplay clip which at first glance could be mistaken for Red Dead Redemption 2 but it’s actually Skyrim, believe it or not. “Transforming Skyrim into RDR2,” they said, revealing a clip of the fantastic mod in action.

To no surprise whatsoever, Reddit users were impressed with this mod. “The things people have done to this game are amazing,” replied SwordofGlass. “What in the god damn?” said bruhmoment2891.

Yet, much of the thread replied with comments such as, “Why not just play Red Dead Redemption 2?” which is a fair question to ask. But this novelty is fun, regardless of how quickly it may wear off and it’s just impressive the amount of work that has gone into creating this mod, regardless.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is out now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it's backwards compatible with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. As for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it’s available on just about every platform imaginable.
