The Steam Community alone is really creative (just look at the custom Team Fortress 2 content they’ve put out) and with the integration of veteran Elder Scrolls modders, this could be the Skyrim Valhalla for modified content.

Elder Scrolls: Skyrim E3 2011

The fifth major entry in the Elder Scrolls series, Skyrim has been generating a lot of buzz since the debut trailer landed earlier this year. Skyrim is unrelated to the goings-on in Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, however the name of the game is derived from the northernmost province of Tamirel, Skyrim, an icy land littered with giants, viking-like warriors, and most notably: dragons. The dragons are obviously one of the highlights of the Skyrim experience, as if the dragon towering […]
