Skyrim has seen its fair share of mods over the years, some more ambitious than others, but none have managed to create their own world quite as successfully as Enderal. When it released back in August it brought with it entirely new landscapes, gameplay mechanics, abilities, and perhaps most surprisingly, a heavy focus on storytelling. Enderal may have been made with Skyrim's engine, but it ended up as a fully fledged game in its own right!
And to further cement that fact, the main developer Nicolas Samuel has just recently announced that he is working on an expansion - Forgotten Stories. According to the current list of features Forgotten Stories is going to add 10-20 hours of new content, fill in the plot holes that were left behind in the original, and naturally, further improve upon several aspects of gameplay. Or in other words, Enderal: Forgotten Stories is going to be a 'proper' expansion!
If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, you'll find the recently posted story trailer down below. Have a look:
Your Enderal save file will be compatible with the Forgotten Stories expansion, but even so it is recommended that you start a new-playthrough given the story and gameplay changes... especially if you're aiming for the 'hidden' ending. So if you were planning a playthrough in the near future, it might be prudent to wait until the expansion releases. As for the release date, you can expect to see Forgotten Stories at some point in 2017, though I'm afraid that's as far as the specifics go.
