is atotal conversion of the Oblivion engine by the German amateur team at SureAI
. Four years in the making and one of the largest mod projects ever completed, it features a massive new hand-crafted world, an elaborate and compelling main quest, dozens of side-quests, over 50 professional voice actors, a reworked leveling and crafting system, new spells, new items, new enemies and an original score of over 50 songs. Those who persevere through the prologue into this open world will be rewarded with a truly brilliant classical RPG
You will need a copy of Oblivion, although you do not need any of the expansion packs. It does work with the Steam version of the game, but you will need to replace your existing Oblivion "Data" directory with the Nehrim "Data" directory. Then unselect all files in your launcher except for the Nehrim files.. Caveat: while all game text, menus and books have been translated into English, the character voices are still in German.
From the devs:
555840 objects in 9622 loading areas (levels) and is inhabited by 1285 non-player characters, some of them friendly, others hostile.. 1616 scripts take care of offering the players enough variety in the 35-part main quest as well as in the about 30 side quests. ... Referring to the testers, the game can hold you busy for about 40-50 hours.
