Skyrim and Oblivion are the two most popular games to be released by Bethesda till date. But what if you could enjoy both the games at once? Check out these 19 Skyrim Oblivion mods to get the best of both worlds.
The Elder Scrolls series has three games released so far, with fans looking towards the future of the series. However, many of us can still not get enough of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and The Elder Scrolls IV: Skyrim. The two games made it to the list of the most popular PC games so far, and rightly so. Most of the franchise fans have played all of the three games, especially Oblivion and Skyrim. And if you are a series fan, you may be looking for a way to get the most of both worlds.
If so, we have something in store for you. While the Skyblivion project is still in the works, where the creators are rebuilding and porting Cyrodiil with all of its characters, locations, and quests to Skyrim and Skyrim SE, we have the next best thing for you.
For this article, we decided to find the best Skyrim Oblivion mods of all time for you. So let’s take a look at the works of the best modders in Skyrim and bring Oblivion (or at least some parts of it) to life in Skyrim and Skyrim Special Edition.
#1 Oblivion and Morrowind Soundtrack
This mod adds music from Morrowind and Oblivion to Skyrim without replacing the vanilla Skyrim music. However, do note that the mod itself does not add any of the music from Oblivion or Morrowind, as doing so would mean going against copyright laws.
This only works if you own the music from Morrowind or Oblivion. If you own the music, you can place it in the Skyrim folder for it to work. The Oblivion music is usually played in the forests, cities, and dungeons. Whereas Morrowind music is played around the coasts and swamps.
As far as the battle music is concerned, it will only be played in encounters with low-level enemies. For the bosses in game, the mod will play the original Skyrim soundtrack as it fits better.

#2 The Oblivion Realms Series – The Gate of Solitude
The Oblivion Realms Series brings a whole new Oblivion adventure to Skyrim. The Gate of Solitude is the chapter one of this series of mods, where you will be running into the Dremora hordes if you are level 35 or above. These interactions will take place in the wastelands of Oblivion. While you can bring along a follower with you, only do so if you are ready to accept their date, which can be death.
You, as a Dragonborn, will be asked to explore a strange mystery taking place around Solitude, where people report unusual sunsets happening in the blink of an eye and in the middle of the day. These sunsets vanish just as quickly as they appear.
So if you accept the challenge and want to explore what the rumors are about, we suggest that you play at a higher difficulty level for the best experience. We would also advise you not to fast travel to Solitude and only approach it from the outside.
