Skyrim Fan Recreates Falkreath in Far Cry 5


In an incredible video, a Skyrim fan shows off their rendition of the city of Falkreath, recreated in Far Cry 5’s map editor.

A video posted online showcases an incredible rendition of Skyrim‘s Falkreath, recreated in Far Cry 5. Falkreath is one of the major cities seen in Skyrim, and it features in-game as the home of the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary.

This creation becomes the latest in a long line of fan homages to Bethesda’s iconic title. While some fans choose to honor Skyrim by creating items from the game in real life, others do so by completing crazy in-game challenges. One player even leveled every skill to 100 without ever leaving Whiterun. The game has left an undeniable cultural imprint on the gaming community, and brought the franchise into the mainstream upon its release in 2011.

The short walkthrough through the town is gorgeous, showcasing every detail from Far Cry 5‘s map editor to display Falkreath in all its glory. The player tours past every building in the town, and stops to show off the mountains looming over the beautiful town. To add to the atmosphere further, the player includes classic Skyrim ambient music that gives the recreation a sense of authenticity. Falkreath is one of the most flora-heavy places in Skyrim, and it benefits this creation massively. Far Cry 5‘s engine does greenery extremely well, and it brings Falkreath to life in a way that isn’t possible in Skyrim‘s dated engine. The versatility of the Far Cry 5 map editor is extremely impressive, with a player even recreating Lord of the Rings’ Helm’s Deep in the engine.

Recreations of Skyrim‘s locations in Far Cry 5 are becoming a specialty of YouTuber Mojo Swoptops, after they previously recreated Riverwood in the Ubisoft title. In the description, the fan claims that the creation took six hours to build, which is dedication to recreating one of the smallest cities in Skyrim. It’s unknown how much more of Skyrim the fan is planning to rebuild in Far Cry 5. To rebuild the full game would be a behemoth task, almost impossible for one person. However, fans will enjoy each slice of Skyrim‘s world as and when it arrives.

Creations like this still popping up in 2023 show how the desire for more Elder Scrolls continues to endure in the gaming community. The modding community has taken Skyrim far, helping to keep the game active to this day. Some of the graphics mods available for Skyrim can even make the game look as though it was released recently. But long-term, there’s no substitute for The Elder Scrolls 6. While news on that front has been scarce for some time, it’s hoped that Bethesda’s release of Starfield later this year will accelerate development.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
