Japanese Skyrim Mod Recreates Bloodborne in Elder Scrolls

Yharnam is reborn in Skyrim.

Although From Software's Dark Souls series are currently available on the PC, Bloodborne remains a PlayStation 4 exclusive, denying the broader gaming world of its dark and terrible gospel. Exclusivity however didn't stop a Japanese modder from re-creating parts of the game in Skryim.

Modder Vicn spent 2016 working on a Bloodborne mod called Glenmoril, which brings various Bloodborne elements like weapons, armor sets, and even quests to Tamriel. Vicn released a trailer for the Glenmoril mod which you can watch below. I was constantly surprised by just how much Bloodborne stuff Vicn managed to recreate through his mod.

PCgamer reports that only one quest (titled 'Little Red Riding Hood') is available right now, but Quests two through four are currently being planned for release. In addition, the pre-alpha mod is only available in Japanese, but Vicn released an English translation file on the mod's Nexus page.

This isn't Vicn's only From Software mod for the Bethesda RPG. They previously released "Vigilant" which brought some similar Dark Souls elements to Skyrim. It's a nice back-and-forth for the two series, and a nice way to reconcile Skyrim and From Software's RPGs considering that early on, both games drew unnecessary (and frankly unfounded) comparisons to each other. Now that time has passed, the two games live comfortably side-by-side with one another, or in this mod's case, built on top of one another.
