Skyrim truly looks new-gen

It’s quite baffling to think that after all these years, fantasy RPG fans still cannot get enough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in large part thanks to its incredible modding community.

When Bethesda first released the next instalment of its ever-popular The Elder Scrolls series in 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, I’m willing to bet that not even it could predict the massive success that it would eventually become, benefiting from multiple new generation ports each improving on the last. To be honest, the continued enjoyment of Skyrim is a blessing in disguise because despite being announced six years ago, we’re still waiting for The Elder Scrolls VI.

Yet, as much as we love to venture into Skyrim’s version of Tamriel and despite several new ports that improve the game with each release, Skyrim is looking quite dated at this point. Though to be fair, it is essentially a 13-year-old game.

Thankfully, if you want to give Skyrim a much-needed added makeover then look no further than the ‘Faithful Faces’ mod created by TaxEvasionMaster which is free to download now via Nexusmods and it looks gorgeous.

The ‘Faithful Faces’ mod does exactly what it says on the tin and it gives the characters of Skyrim a modern facelift but without the need for Donald Duck filler lips. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if a mod exists for that too.

The mod gives a facelift to over 3,000 NPCs which also supports over 2,400 new hair physics. The mod also fixes NPCs' eyes and the mouths of those lovable Orcs as well as improving facial animations.

Sadly, it seems that the ‘Faithful Faces’ mod is only available for the PC version of the game. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is out now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
