Beyond Skyrim - Bruma SE is now available!

NOTICE: If you are experiencing an infinite loading screen trying to cross the border, your game is running out of memory. Make sure you have the SKSE Memory Patch enabled. If this doesn't work, try Safety Load by kapaer. These issues will not occur on Special Edition due to its vastly enhanced memory management.

Travel beyond the borders of Skyrim, and visit Bruma, the northmost county in Cyrodiil.

Discover what has become of the city's residents since the events of Oblivion in all-new adventures and storylines. Plunge into the depths of ancient Ayleid ruins. Explore an expansive region larger and denser than the Dragonborn DLC. In Beyond Skyrim: Bruma, the choices - and their consequences - are yours alone.

Rediscover Frostcrag Spire, Cloud Ruler Temple, Frostfire Glade and many other legendary locations. The journey back to the Heartland begins now. Are you prepared?

  • The city of Bruma, reimagined and recreated from scratch in exhaustive detail, containing over 70 residents, each with their own unique dialogue, stories and routines

  • A fully-explorable County Bruma, larger in size and scope than the Dragonborn DLC, packed to the brim with new dungeons, points of interest and secrets - brought to life with more custom art assets than any comparable Skyrim mod

Mod review by TheEpicNate

Bruma playthrough by Zero Period Productions

A memory patch such as SKSE with the memory patch activated or SSME. Failure to activate a memory patch prior to loading into Bruma will cause the game to crash.

Required DLCs

In order to play Beyond Skyrim: Bruma, you will need all three official Skyrim game DLCs, or the Legendary Edition of Skyrim.

Recommended Plugins
Beyond Skyrim: Bruma has been heavily bug tested by a large QA team. However, its taxing nature can push Skyrim, particularly Skyrim Classic, to its absolute limits. The following plugins should resolve most issues users may face.

Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) is known to lose or corrupt data when downloading/installing large mods like Bruma. This will lead to loss of functionality or otherwise cause errors with content related to the mod, and is part of the reason the Nexus staff began development on Vortex as a replacement. If you encounter an issue and installed the mod using NMM, you will be asked to reinstall manually before moving on with assistance.

With Mod Organizer 2 (recommended) or Vortex:
Click "download with manager" or download the archives manually. Once the mod is activated, ensure that both BSAssets.esm and BSHeartland.esm are enabled in your load order and that BSHeartland.esm loads AFTER BSAssets.esm.

Manual installation:
Download and unzip the archive, and place all contents in your Skyrim/Data folder. Ensure that both BSAssets.esm and BSHeartland.esm are enabled in your load order and that BSHeartland.esm loads AFTER BSAssets.esm.

Uninstalling Beyond Skyrim: Bruma is not supported due to the way that the game engine 'bakes' data into saved games. If you wish to stop using Beyond Skyrim: Bruma, you are STRONGLY advised to roll back to a saved game that predates your installing Beyond Skyrim: Bruma, or start a new saved game.

If you uninstall Beyond Skyrim: Bruma without rolling back to a previous saved game or starting a new one, it is very likely that you will experience bugs. This is due to the way the game engine handles data files, and is true of Bethesda's official DLC as well as other comparable mods.

Compatibility Patches and Add-ons:

Q: What kind of people are you looking for? How can I join the Cyrodiil team?
A: We are always on the lookout for talented concept artists, 3D modellers, landscape designers and people skilled with the CK, although we have openings for other positions as well. Just send an application through Our site, along with a sample of your work. If you have any questions about joining you can ask in Our Discord. And if you don't have the skills now, consider joining The Arcane University our training division.

Q: What is Beyond Skyrim?
A: Beyond Skyrim is an ambitious community, composed of various, independent projects working together to bring the other Provinces of Tamriel - including High Rock, Cyrodiil, Hammerfell, Elsweyr, Black Marsh and Morrowind as well as the lands of Roscrea and Atmora - into the game and timeline of Skyrim.

Q: Will it require a new game?
A: Nope! You will be able to use your existing characters from Skyrim. Just hop over the border, and continue your adventures.

Q: Is this the same thing as Skyblivion / Skywind? Why aren't you working with them?
A: No, Skyblivion and Skywind are remakes of older Bethesda games in the Skyrim engine. This is an entirely new mod in which the player can visit a version of Tamriel contemporary to Skyrim. Our goals and methods are different, but we keep up a good relationship.

Q: Why not you just port content from Oblivion / Morrowind / other games?
A: Because this is a violation of Bethesda's EULA, and would be grounds for them to close down the project.

Q: Will this be released for consoles?
A: Beyond Skyrim: Bruma is now available on Xbox One. We cannot release it for PS4 due to Sony's policies on mod assets prohibiting us from doing so.

We will support Beyond Skyrim: Bruma comprehensively, with patches to resolve any bugs and issues that are reported by players.

But we're not stopping with Bruma - we're working on the rest of Cyrodiil, too - from the naval heart of Anvil to the swampy marshes of Blackwood and the grandeur of the Imperial City, as part of the wider Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil project. Be sure to follow us on our social media outlets to get up the latest news on patches and the continued development of Cyrodiil.
