Tamriel Rebuilt, a mod effort to add in the entirety of mainland Morrowind to The Elder Scrolls III, just received a new roadmap for 2022. With the Elder Scrolls 6 still years out, RPG fans might have reason now to dust off Morrowind.

Modders working on Tamriel Rebuilt just announced a new roadmap for the massive, 20 year-old Morrowind mod project. The mega mod's roadmap for 2022 includes adding in the Velothi Mountains which, in Elder Scrolls canon, form the border between Skyrim and Morrowind.

While Bethesda's been drip-feeding new information about Starfield, we've heard next to nothing about The Elder Scrolls VI since the 2018 trailer confirming the game's existence. Skyrim recently received an "Anniversary Edition," but this was direly short on new content, apart from a handful of quests. This means Elder Scrolls fans are in a bit of a rut. The Tamriel Rebuilt update could change things, however. The mod has been a work in progress almost since the day Morrowind launched. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind doesn't actually feature the entirety of the province of Morrowind. Instead, it takes place on the island of Vvardenfall.

Tamriel Rebuilt, as the name suggests, aims to rebuild the entirety of the province, with new cities and landscapes, and hundreds of new quests. The roadmap states that, at present, roughly half the planned landmass has been added (an area bigger than base Morrowind!), along with over 360 quests. 

If you're itching for more Elder Scrolls action, you can check out Tamriel Rebuilt here. Protip: Morrowind's visuals don't exactly hold up in 2021. It's a good idea to use the MGE XE graphics extended to enhance visual quality, alongside texture and mesh replacers of your choice. 

Check out the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti here on Amazon. It's a solid budget card that's definitely capable of running Morrowind.
