Skyrim: Entire Tamriel Landmass Built Into Skyrim

An Elder Scrolls player, curious as to why the game stopped him at the border between Skyrim and Morrowind, engaged noclip mode and decided to look beyond. And what he saw was stunning... (PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

It won't happen, but I would pay big money if the DLC was unlocking the regions one at a time with detail akin to that of Skyrim.
WetN00dle69  +   1010d ago
Well Bethesda did say that DLC wont be released frequently BUT will be huge! So i dont know dude. I smell Bethesda cooking something good! But first they need to release the patch.

if the plan is to give us reigion by region then omg im in love

tes 5 could be the final elder scroll for a really long time but it could work into a complete continent
scotchmouth  +   1009d ago
That would be awesome. Is there a tentative date they are aiming for? Not that it matters as I am slowly grinding and chugging along in skyrim.
Arnon  +   1010d ago
Morrowind... bring me Morrowind on Skyrim's engine. Oh god how amazing that would be.
FCOLitsjustagame  +   1010d ago
As long as we can skip the blight storms. Which really should be gone now anyway since a previous character of mine resolved the whole "Red Mountain" issue.
snipes101  +   1010d ago
YES. With no question the best entry in the Elder Scrolls series.
NegativeCreepWA  +   1010d ago
I think the Mt erupted in recent years forcing the the dumner to move.
WhiteLightning  +   1010d ago
I really want to se what Cyrodiil looks like now, with the wars that went on and the time period that has passed it would be nice to see what it looks like now.
strange1986  +   1010d ago
Yeah I'd love to revisit some of the familiar cities (or perhaps not so familiar anymore).

Possible DLC? Would be nice to revisit Morrowind. Wasnt it rendred inhabitable when the volcano erupted as all the Dunmer had to evacuate and many refugees ended up in Skyrim.

I would love to have all land masses for ES. Then I would love to have 4 players in co-op. Bring out weekly DLC for missions, I would never play a MMO again.
RankFTW  +   1009d ago
mind = blown
Erudito87  +   1010d ago
whats the point of all that if you cant already go to it without no clip?
MysticStrummer  +   1010d ago
Morrowind and Cyrodiil are a long way from "all of Tamriel", but it's still very intriguing.
thesummerofgeorge  +   1010d ago
Very cool! If they don't end up using it in future DLC though, does anybody know what the purpose of including these inaccessible areas in the game might be?
dktxx2  +   1010d ago
There just for sights. If you climb up certain mountains they wanted you to see the distant land for immersion's sake. It doesn't really point to possible DLC or anything. It probably only took them five minutes if even to make all that land, it's all heightmap generated.
thesummerofgeorge  +   1010d ago
That makes sense. I figured that might be the case, but I wasn't sure if those parts were actually visible from the main map or not.
RedDragan  +   1010d ago
Doubtful... the land masses are correct to form by all other accounts.
RickHiggity  +   1009d ago
That is possible. but the fact that the white gold tower in cyrodil kind of disproves that, considering you cant see it from anywhere in skyrim. At least I haven't seen it from within skyrim yet so I could be wrong.
Lord_Sloth  +   1010d ago
Maybe to make sure they got the scale of Skyrim right.
HardCover  +   1010d ago
The visuals explanation is definitely true, but there's a little more to it. Oblivion had similar extra landmass included, and the modding community made use of it.

Much easier for Bethesda to add in a scaled landmass than it is for an individual fan or group of fans to mod it all in. Bethesda fans are pretty well known to mod Bethesda games, so it's not a stretch to imagine it as a slight nod to that community.
TheGameFoxJTV  +   1010d ago
You know the modders will if the devs don't.
Perkel  +   1010d ago
nope those lands are generated on fly. You could walk for ever if you want but those lands would be some random forests and plains Skyrim type even in hammerfell.

Same was in Oblivion
MasterCornholio  +   1010d ago
Pretty awesome if they could give you a whole region as DLC.

ThrazN7  +   1010d ago
For those who don't know morrowind is now completely destroyed.
Pumbli  +   1010d ago
I was actually wondering about this too but Skyrim happens almost 200 years after the eruption of Red Mountain. (Skyrim - 4E201, Eruption - 4E22) That would give ample time for Dunmer to rebuild.

It would be interesting to see how things have changed it Morrowind.
ThrazN7  +   1010d ago
The argonians did over run them after the eruption. The dunmer probably spreaded out to all of tamrial. Some city's probably survived .
Canary  +   1010d ago
There are still Dunmer in Morrowind... it's just Vvardenfell that's uninhabited. After it blew (and after the Argonians invaded) a lot of Dunmer refugees fled into Cyrodiil and Skyrim (which is why there are so many Dunmer in Skyrim, particularly near Riften).

AFAIK, Morrowind is still uninhabited in 4E 201.

It is engrish. You didn't notice it was a translated article?

SwampCroc  +   1010d ago
I'd like to go to Summerset Isle or Valenwood and Elsweyr... but any DLC will be good
SignifiedSix  +   1010d ago
It could most certainly be for DLC. When you go to that path between the mountains, there's an imperial guard there that will attack you.
I really don't understand why he would be there. I have high hopes of DLC for that part of the map!
CrimsonEngage  +   1010d ago
Nothing to get excited about. He can't even walk on the land outside of skyrim because technically it doesn't exist. It's just a hightmap the game uses for the map in the game. You can see white gold tower on the map at a certain angle. That's all it's used for.
AHall88  +   1010d ago
I highly doubt we'll see any other provinces added as DLC. I think we might be lucky if we got an extra city added in, like Mournhold for Morrowind's Tribunal expansion pack. Maybe the Imperial City to rid it of the Imperials/High Elves.
Still I would love to see Summerset Isle, it would make the most sense, since either side you support in Skyrim would still have to deal with the Altmer and really who doesn't love killing some stuck up elves?
TABSF  +   1010d ago
PC community will probably mod in Morrowind and Cyrodiil.

It was only discovered that the landscapes still exists to some extent thanks to PC.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   1010d ago
well todd howard did say there will be huge dlcs just not many of them.
Horny Melon  +   1010d ago
Entire world map isn't accurate........

What lands are not on the map? I'll give you a hint. The Aldmeri Dominion and The Argononian holdings..........
despair  +   1010d ago
I await the day when we get an elder scrolls game that covers the entire world....
Horny Melon  +   1010d ago
I suspect that the DLC is going to be the two missing sections of the map. Still the entire empire is represented and now there is enough map that mods don't have to be squeezed inside skyrim.
mistajeff  +   1010d ago
for modders?
Gigglefist  +   1010d ago
I went to that exact location on the map and noticed the same thing. Hate to compare, but I'd like this to be like Pokemon Gold/Silver, in returning to an old land. The nostalgia would be fantastic.
Swiggins  +   1010d ago
Give me the sands of Elsweyr, I need me some Kahjiti homelands to explore.
LightofDarkness  +   1009d ago
Screw that, take us to Akavir, the continent east of Tamriel, which mirrors Eastern mythology. It's also where dragons come from. There are monkey people and frost demons and crazy things over there, plus it's where the Akavir Katana, The Blades' weapon of choice, comes from. It just sounds like it would be a great place to explore, because it would be dramatically different from Tamriel thematically and aesthetically.
