The Elder Scrolls 6 release date has made it easier for fantasy gamers to await the next Bethesda games, but a new Elder Scrolls mod brings both titles together in stunning fashion.
The Nickies Cross-Game Invader Add-On is a mod that allows players to transfer their items, spells, and player data between Oblivion and Morrowind, and vice versa. That means you can use the same character across both games, bring your protagonist or an NPC over to play as a follower, or even defeat your created character from one game in the other.
Nickies, the mod's creator, has also created a unique, cross-game boss, known as the Tonal Invader, who will appear during a new Morrowind quest that begins on the shores of Solstheim, but will flee when you defeat him in battle. You'll then have to chase him all the way to Cyrodiil in Oblivion in order to defeat him.
Nickies explains that each game has its own set of stat checks, while the fight in Oblivion includes timed parries. Both segments are packed with depth and easter eggs, encouraging players to peruse thoroughly.
Defeating the Tonal Invader allows you to transfer your spells, items, and other characters between the games – although Nickies notes you may choose to leave Oblivion's Reflect Damage effect in Morrowind for fun, or bring back your favourite Morrowind enchantments to Oblivion.
The complete documentation and information for Cross-Game Invader can be found on the PC Gamer download page, which you'll want to pay attention to as the entire process is quite arduous.
At the next Starfield showcase, we'll get more information on the release date, but in the meantime, check out more of the best games like Skyrim to satisfy that hunger that only the greatest open-world games can truly scratch.
