'Lordbound' Is an Expansion-Sized Mod That Adds Intriguing New Beauty to Skyrim

'Lordbound' will add 30 hours of content to Skyrim.

I haven't found a reason to jump back into Skyrim because I only have so many hours in a day and a life to live. But I can't help but feel a little curious about checking out the huge, upcoming mod, Lordbound, after seeing this new teaser trailer showcasing some of the new environments this mod will add to Skyrim.

The mod team is building Lordbound with the hopes of making it the size of a brand new expansion, complete with 30 hours of new adventures, new dungeons to explore, a couple faction storylines, and a new region called Druadach Valley.

Lordbound has been in development since 2015 and is scheduled for a 2018 release date. Along with the new environment is a brand new main storyline, original to the mod. It involves a war between the Imperial Legion and Orc factions over the Druadach Valley, with players taking part in the struggle.

While the addition of new storylines and characters are certainly intriguing, it's the strange and wonderful new locations teased by the Lordbound trailer that makes the mod worth checking out.
