Skyrim Mod adds a new area to Whiterun

The city of Whiterun in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim is one of the most iconic locations in the entire game, and this mod adds a little something extra.

Skyrim is the longest-running entry in the entire series. Originally launched in 2011 and re-released multiple times over the years, it’s been running for well over a decade and doesn’t seem to be slowing down either. While The Elder Scrolls 6 is rumored to be in development, it will likely be a long time before fans see the next installment. Happily, TES5 has plenty to see and do, and with the modding community constantly releasing new content, its longevity is ever growing.


Sometimes add-ons just give something extra to a place. For example, a team of modders calling themselves The Whiterun Dragonsreach Expansion Project just released a new mod for Skyrim. As the name suggests, this adds a little more to the town of Whiterun, especially around Dragonsreach. The description states that this area now has a number of defensive towers as well as a new guard practice area.

Whiterun is one of the most famous places in Skyrim, mostly because it’s pretty much the first town most players will come across. While Riverwood is where the story takes the Dragonborn after escaping Helgen, it’s Whiterun where much of the game really begins to take off. The Jarl of the city sits on his throne in the Dragonsreach fortress mentioned above, and it is in these early moments of the story that the player encounters and battles his first dragon. There are many cities and settlements Skyrimbut it is this one that holds a special place in the hearts of many.

As mentioned, Bethesda’s epic 2011 RPG enjoys a very long shelf life, with enough custom add-ons to seemingly keep the game going for years to come. Mods like the one that adds The witcher 3 horses inside Skyrim or those that allow players to perform magic with a lute have helped extend the playtime of this already massive title.

Perhaps one of the reasons why it’s so popular even after all these years is that it’s penetrated the cultural consciousness beyond the gaming industry. Skyrim is known for its memes, like the “arrow to the knee” line often uttered by the guards, so its impact extends beyond just playing the game. Despite its popularity and smorgasbord of mods created by talented teams and individuals, it’s fair to say many would love to keep going The Elder Scrolls 6 now.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
