SUMMARY


The Forgotten City is an epic adventure through time in an ancient Dwarven city buried deep beneath Skyrim. It has everything: ancient riddles to solve, people to rescue, murders to investigate, missing people to track down, invasions to fend off, terrifying secrets to uncover, villains to defeat, new enemies to fight, legendary armor to collect, and arguments to win. It features an original orchestral soundtrack and over 1200 of dialogue from talented voice actors.


PRAISE FOR THE FORGOTTEN CITY



"The story here is, no doubt, the best of any Skyrim mod. It's so good, that it really reminds me of Blockbuster movies like Inception, Interstellar, and especially Edge of Tomorrow, and it's so cinematic as well, especially the custom composed soundtrack." MxR, Skyrim Mods Weekly

"Amazing... it's a super dynamic story... how the mod utilizes paradoxes and time loops is fantastic... one of the most thrilling quests we've ever played..." Brodual

“The production values, for a mod, are completely ridiculous... The Forgotten City is a pretty big deal.” Kotaku

“An incredibly polished & insanely well done Skyrim mod. You owe it to yourself to check it out.” ShoddyCast

"Finishing the game was a bittersweet moment... brought true joy to my heart. I’ll even go as far as saying I teared up a bit." Giga Geek Magazine

“This mod is the best quest and new land mod I’ve downloaded since I started covering Skyrim mods. I mean it." theDeModcracy, Skyrim weekly mods

“Looks pretty sweet!” BioWare Creative Director, Mike Laidlaw 

“An undeniably impressive undertaking.” PC Gamer
