"Morrowind Overhaul 3" Modernizes Morrowind

| 2 Oct 2012 11:46

A new mod compilation updates and fixes almost every aspect of the 10-year-old RPG.

As the leaves turn and autumn falls upon us, it's comforting to snuggle up with games we know and love. For many, few games are more beloved than the third entry in The Elder Scrolls series, Morrowind. However, players wishing to revisit to the land of the Dunmer might find that they can never truly return home, as the game hasn't aged too well in in the decade since its release. That's where Morrowind Overhaul comes in to save your nostalgia. Clocking in at around 2GB, this mega-mod cocktail is almost twice as large as the original game. Just as its title suggests, it overhauls everything, from the textures, models, even the gameplay gets touched up.

Shortly after its release, the Morrowind mod community has been tirelessly tinkering away at the massive RPG. Even after the release of two sequels and the passing of ten years, new mods find their way into the Morrowind Nexus regularly. The mod squad over at Onitocopter has complied together the best of the best, insured that they played well together, and compiled them together in this package. The trailer to the right offers a sampling of the utter beauty that they managed to eek out of this ancient game.

While many of the mods contained in MO3 are either updated or tweaked, perhaps the best part is the installer. While the original incarnation included a 70-page install guide, MO3 has a handy installer which automates the majority of the process.

If you don't already own a copy, you can find the Game of the Year edition of Morrowind, complete with both sizable expansion packs, on Steam for $20. Note that Morrowind Overhaul 3 only works with either the original CD or the Steam versions.

Update: Seemingly in celebration, Steam has Morrowind (along with every other TES game) is currently on half price on Steam, until Oct. 4th.
