That? That’s the release trailer for “Nehrim,” an Oblivion mod by esteemed group SureAI — makers of the Morrowind total conversion “Arktwend” and the Fallout 3 mod “Cube Experimental.”
But as is readily apparent, Nehrim is no ordinary mod.
Developed over a period of four years — yes, you read that right — Nehrim is an immense piece of work. According to SureAI, the total conversion contains:
555840 objects in 9622 loading areas (levels) and is inhabited by 1285 non-player characters, some of them friendly, others hostile.. 1616 scripts take care of offering the players enough variety in the 35-part main quest as well as in the about 30 side quests. In the German version, you can hear 56 professional voice actors, while the nearly 50 new and self-composed pieces of music can be enjoyed internationally. On top of that, there are a lot of new weapons, armours and spells. Referring to the testers, the game can hold you busy for about 40-50 hours.
And according to SureAI’s Dennis Weich, it’s all finally being unleashed for download tomorrow. While only the German version will be released initially, an English version is coming, and we’ll have an interview with the team to coincide with the latter release. In the meantime, visit SureAI’s site or their ModDB page for more info.
