Skyrim: 10 best story mods with new locations

Almost 10 years have passed since the release of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, however, the game is still very popular. The reason for this is fan mods that add something new to Bethesda’s creation. Some of the add-ons are so big that they can match the official DLC or even surpass them in all respects. Today we will talk about 10 mods for Skyrimadding new locations for research into the game.



Valenwood / Valenwood

Valenwood / Valenwood

One of the most ambitious projects released over the past year. Adventure modification allows players to find themselves in a new, hitherto uncharted province of Valenwood – the homeland of the Bosmer. The main feature of the add-on is the design of the locations – everything is done in a fantasy style: elven tree houses, new graceful melee weapons and bows, skillful armor. Unfortunately, while the mod is in its infancyhowever, the author regularly releases patches that add fresh content to the game.

At the moment, the Valenwood expansion is exclusive to the special edition of the game.

Land of Vominheim / Wominheim

Land of Vominheim / Wominheim

This modification has already managed to make a rustle on the Internet, although it came out relatively recently – in October 2020… Project Wominheim invites players to explore an amazing new island that has become a haven for last members Of the Dragon Cult… In addition, there are several gloomy atmospheric dungeons inhabited by various undead and monsters. All enemies grow in level along with Dovahkiin, so you won’t be bored even if you are fully pumped. The author also plans to eventually add a storyline and a couple of secondary tasks to his creation, which will provide several options for passing.

The Wominheim addon can be installed on both the legendary and the special edition of the game.

Moonpath to Elsweyr

Moonpath to Elsweyr

Pretty known plot modification, the first version of which appeared on the Nexus back in 2012… However, despite its great age, the addition still continues to delight its fans, since its author regularly makes some changes to his creation. The latest version of the mod boasts a huge storyline, diluted with cinematic trailers that impress with a number of secondary tasks, as well as a beautiful location for exploration, including the desert and jungle.

Undeath Remastered

Undeath Remastered

One of the best addons for the person who prefers roleplay the master of the dark art of necromancy… The main plot of the Undead modification is centered around the evil magician and his dangerous plans to achieve immortality. During the passage of the quest chain, the player will have to explore a new location, as well as meet hitherto unseen enemies. In addition, Dovahkiin will finally have the opportunity to become a real master of the undead, taking the form of a lich.

Pit of 100 Battles / Pit 100 battles

Pit of 100 Battles / Pit 100 battles

This modification is somewhat different from previous add-ons, since it does not and will not have a plot and quests… Nevertheless, it can captivate the player for several tens of hours, because he has to explore the dungeon, consisting of hundreds of floors! Each level has its own unique architecture and inhabitants, and on each 10th floor there is a very difficult boss. The essence of the mod is simple – to clear all the dungeons from opponents, however, this will be very difficult to do. Often, the gamer will not only have to swing a sword and throw fireballs, but also carefully examine the battlefield in order to interact with some objects. In general, without a certain amount of cunning and competent strategy, you are unlikely to be able to complete the entire dungeon.

The Yama 100 Battles add-on only supports the special edition of the game.

Skyrim Underground / Underground Skyrim

Skyrim Underground / Underground Skyrim

Another modification that adds a bunch of new dungeons. However, if in the previous case they looked like a tower extending into the depths, then locations of Underground Skyrim scattered throughout the province, as well as the island of Solstheim. Each dungeon contains unique leveled monsters, taken from modification Fantasy, as well as new weapons and ingredients that can be obtained from defeated enemies. Also, the undoubted advantage of the modification is that some objects can be destroyed (walls, gratings, roots, icicles, columns) in order to open the way to hidden rooms. The complexity of the locations is well balanced – the player will not stumble upon an impassable dungeon near Riverwood, but on Solstheim you will have to sweat.

The Underground Skyrim modification is adapted for the legendary and special edition of the game.

Hope’s Abandon / Despair

Hope's Abandon / Hopelessness

This small but very high quality modification adds a new dungeon, located west of Whiterun… The location is filled not only with various monsters, but also with puzzles, traps, and hidden rooms with rich loot. At the end of the dungeon, the player will have a battle with the final boss, who set himself the task of destroying all the heroes of Skyrim, luring them one by one to his lair. It should be noted that the location is designed only for high-level characters (50+) with well-pumped combat skills and equipment.

Forgotten Dungeons

Forgotten Dungeons

Another pretty old mod, adding to the vastness of Skyrim 65 new dungeons, and 50 additional quests to clean up these locations. A distinctive feature of the addon is the high-quality study of each dungeon – the author paid attention to literally every little thing. Some of the dungeons will be easier to clear, others will be able to tickle the nerves of even experienced gamers. However, for passing each location, the player will be rewarded at its true worth.

The Forgotten Dungeons add-on can be installed on Skyrim LE or Skyrim SE.
