Update: The source video of the Game of Thrones Skyrim trailer has been modified to credit the content’s original creator.
Elder Scrolls: Skyrim celebrated its fifth anniversary this month. Coincidently the TV series Game of Thrones also debuted in the same year (2011). A mashup of these two storied franchises (considering their familiar fantasy theme) was basically inevitable.
Since its release, Skyrim has become a main stay of the mod community as fans of the game are constantly findingnew ways to add new content. In the last few years there’s been a ton of Game of Thrones mods. YouTube user UpIsNotJump has decided to put some of that user generated content to work with a recreated rendition of the original Game of Thrones Season 1 trailer.
Game of Thrones Season 7 is still seven months away but thanks to this Skyrim mashup we can take a moment to reminisce when the times in Westeros were simpler. But not really. Westeros has been a disaster since the opening credits first rolled. But I digress.
Check out the fan-made Game of Thrones Season 1 Skyrim trailer below. And underneath that we’ve included the original season 1 trailer. Try to play both videos at the same time so you can see how spot on it is.
