A modder has added something to The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim that has been inspired by Starfield, the upcoming sci-fi title from Bethesda. Considered to be one of the most anticipated video games of 2023, Starfield will represent something of a departure from the studio’s fantasy role-playing series. For a few people, it may seem odd that fantasy & sci-fi would Advance together, but evidently the user is excited enough about the new release to implement science-fiction elements into TES5.


I’s still not known when Starfield will actually be releasing. It was set to launch this month but had to be pushed back along with Redfall, which Bethesda is also publishing, because the developer wantde to put some extra polish on both titles. Xbox has said the former will be coming out some time after the latter, but at the time of writing, neither game has a concrete release date. Given that, it seems that some people are trying to fill the time as best they can.

That’s what Nexus Mod user ImADoctorNotA is doing, at least. As spotted by PCGamesN, the Skyrim fan has brought a new mod to the game which takes influence from Bethesda’s upcoming sci-fi epic, despite the fact that it isn’t out yet. Called “Quantum Lockpicks,” the mod itself has the general hallmarks of something more fantasy-based & implements a conjuring spell that allows players to unlock things. However, what makes this mod different is that it comes with a Starfield-esque backstory, in which the spell will be obtained once the player grabs a Crystal Communicator so they can talk with their team that’s in space. Once they’ve done that, the lockpicking spell will be teleported to them.

The communicator can be found at High Hrothgar, the seat of the Throat of the World, which is regarded as one of the most breathtaking sights in all of Skyrim. The mod description says the device can be found in a chest near the entrance to High Hrothgar, which will then activate a 20-second message. The mod even comes with voice acting written & performed by ImADoctorNotA themselves.

The amount of mods for Skyrim is almost uncountable, & there are many more constantly coming out. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to say that the modding community is helping to keep the game in the limelight & as popular now as it was when it was released in 2011. Of course, Bethesda re-releasing Skyrim for new console generations probably helps as well, but mods are what’s keeping the RPG fresh.

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