Odd Discovery: Morrowind, Oblivion Found In Skyrim
You think Skyrim is pretty damn big, huh? Well, you have no idea...
It seems that when Bethesda set out to create The Elder Scrolls V, the team didn't just build Skyrim. In fact, according to a young gamer from Finland (as cited by Edge), the entire Tamriel landmass - including both Morrowind and Oblivion - is actually included.
In the southeast corner of Skyrim at Stendarr's Beacon, the gamer found a path that led to an archway, but it wouldn't let him go further. He didn't know why you could see more to explore but the game wouldn't let him proceed...why put it there at all? So he enabled NoClip mode and was able to walk on. After a while, the textures dropped off and he saw the Red Mountain from Morrowind's Vvardenfell region. He saw lots. "It's all there," he added.
Cyrodil is there, too; it was the location of Oblivion's Imperial Tower. Now, many are wondering why Bethesda did this...do you have any bright ideas? To check out screenshots of Jesse's journey, visit his blog.
