Apotheosis has rapidly progressed since our last update. The following trailer showcases completed environments in the Dreamsleeve, Battlespire, and many realms of Oblivion as well convey the general mood we're going for. We've also included a teaser of a few of the bossfights that await you in Apotheosis. We're nearing completion in the level design front, and will moving on to quest and NPC implementation soon.

Apotheosis is expected to launch in 2019 on Nexusmods, Moddb and Bethesda.net for Legendary Edition (PC) and later that year for Skyrim Special Edition (PC/Xbox).

Current Status
13/16 realms of Oblivion are complete, the hub world of Dreamsleeve roughly twice the size of Solstheim from the Dragonborn DLC, and parts of Battlespire.

Many of the realms of Oblivion are large exploratory levels involving overworlds and a plethora of things to discover, while others focused unique experiences that are more experimental.

Ashpits, Hunting Grounds, Attribution Share, Chimera of Desolation (Deadlands), Coldharbor, Moonshadow and Apocrypha are on the larger side and rival the size of a few Skyrim holds each. Smaller realms offer a focused, unique and more experimental approach.

These levels are complete; this means landscaping, points of interest, enemy encounters and bosses, gameplay logic and scripting, new art assets and models, navmesh, lod, traps, and interiors all done within these locations. On top of that, we have developed a lot of new assets, armors, weapons, spells, creatures, an original soundtrack and high quality recorded NPC dialogue.

What Remains

  • Completing Vaermina's Quagmire, the Realm of Clavicus Vile and Namira's Scuttling Void.
  • Finalizing quest and NPC implementation.
  • QA.

Design and Vision
Apotheosis leaves progression to the player. You are given the ultimate goal of assembling the Heart of Lorkhan, but the means in which you do it, and where you go is left to the player to decide.

You awaken in the Dreamsleeve, home of the souls of the dead, recycled into new life. The Dreamsleeve slowly feeds on it's inhabitants being; their memories and sense of self are slowly drained till all is left is a husk of their former selves. Gradually, the soul goes hollow.

The Dreamsleeve functions as the hub world in Apotheosis.

At the center of the Dreamsleeve is the Cathedral of the Final Hour, a mecca where the souls of the dead congregate to preserve their memories. The Cathedral acts as the player's homebase, much in the same way as Firelink Shrine operates in the Souls games. From here, you embark in all directions in search of Oblivion Gates into the realms of the Daedra.

You can tackle any of the 16 Oblivion gates in any order, at your leisure, encountering people with their own stories, quests and motivations along the way, discovering ruined cities, villages, artifacts and more. You will need to explore, optimize the use of abilities, weaknesses and resistances against the various creations of Oblivion, in the ultimate purpose of obtaining the Heart of Lorkhan. Achieving this goal may entail defeating the 16 Lords of Oblivion, but there are other ways.

You can follow Apotheosis on Moddb for news and updates.

Time for a question for the community in general, lol.

Hey, guys. Mind telling me what house mod in Skyrim you would personally deem worthy of being the home of a God/Goddess for when I return after completing this mod? ...I'll be a vampire Goddess, but it's okay if the house doesn't have the vampiric vibe. I'm a civilized bloodsucker. XD As long as the home fits the godliness, I'll be happy.

Well, there is the "aetherial palace" mod. It allows you to build a palace in your own plane of aetherius. It has a lot of features, too many to list.

Personally i find it to be the most useful player home mod i have seen so far. Not only is it the most beautiful home i ever seen, it has some unique & useful features. One of which allows me to create dwemmer automoton.

There is also another feature which allows you to be safely transported back to your own plane of aetherius and recover instantly when your on low health. So in a sense its kind of "semi immortality" similar to the undeath mod.

The difference is you can still be killed if your enemy one shots you, but obviously being one shoted is rare if your powerful enough.

This feature has to be manually turned on, so it doesn't really conflict with undeath thankfully.

This isn't quite a new home and I don't know if you already know about it, for my vampire character I use Throne Room from Royal Bloodline mod. Also if you like dwemer like me you could use Clockwor Manor. Lastly Hel Rising if you don't mind another goddess roommate. :)

Oh, Royal Bloodline comes with a player home? I've had it installed for quite some time and I didn't even know. XD

True, Clockwork Manor is a very much Goddess worthy home, good point.

Hel Rising I didn't know about, but whether I can share my home will depend on how well we can get along. :P

Aetherial Palace I didn't know either, will certainly look it up.

Thanks guys! :D

This is awesome! Could we get a progress update or something similar? It's been nearly a year since the last one, and a lot of people are wondering. Thanks for this, keep it up!

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Well, we do get the pictures updated at the top of the page every couple of weeks, along with some lore for each, thus giving us quite a bit of info as to how the Daedric Princes' realms will look like. One could argue that it qualifies as 'or something similar', lol.

I am very much looking forward to this mod, I just tend to come check in once in a while how its progressing.

To the people relentlessly asking when its going to be done, please guys, be patient, I bet Dio is doing their very very best to get this finished and ready for us to play :)

When you deem it to be ready, we'll be waiting.

I guess this will come out on Nov to 2019? (Don't mind waiting 'cause this'll be worth it!!)

2019 is a more realistic scenario atm. I've went ahead and updated the page.

Take as much time as you need Di0, better to have it delayed then rushed.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

It's starting to irritate Di0 being asked about the release date, can you please refrain from asking about the release date, it'll be released when it's ready.

Not at all. Questions is one of the main reasons this page exists after all :)
