The Forgotten City is an award-winning, critically acclaimed expansion mod offering a unique 6 - 8 hour experience: a murder mystery investigation set in an ancient underground city. You'll need to solve it using your wits, and the ability to travel through time. It has a dark, non-linear story in which you'll interrogate suspects, explore the city and its many secrets, and navigate challenging moral dilemmas. It features multiple endings, an original orchestral score, and professionally voiced dialogue.

“Undeniably impressive.” PC Gamer
“The production values, for a mod, are completely ridiculous... The Forgotten City is a pretty big deal.” Kotaku Australia
Voted FILE OF THE MONTH on Skyrim Nexus for October 2015!
5 stars (out of 5) on Steam Workshop
"The story here is, no doubt, the best of any Skyrim mod. It's so good, that it really reminds me of Blockbuster movies like Inception, Interstellar, and especially Edge of Tomorrow, and it's so cinematic as well, especially the custom composed soundtrack." MxR Mods
"Amazing... it's a super dynamic story... how the mod utilizes paradoxes and time loops is fantastic... one of the most thrilling quests we've ever played..." Brodual
“An incredibly polished & insanely well done Skyrim mod. You owe it to yourself to check it out.” ShoddyCast
"Finishing the game was a bittersweet moment... brought true joy to my heart. I’ll even go as far as saying I teared up a bit." Giga Geek Magazine
“Looks pretty sweet!” BioWare Creative Director, Mike Laidlaw
Help! I found a bug!
Please see the Nexus forums page for known bugs and workarounds.
Are there any level requirements?
It’s designed for characters at Level 5 and above. However, the story responds to your character’s individual history, so a high level is recommended.
Do I need to have the other Skyrim expansions or mods?
No. Only Skyrim is required.
Is it compatible with other mods?
Yes. It should be compatible with most other mods. One known incompatibility is Death Mountain 2.
Can I bring a follower?
This mod is designed to be played solo. If you bend the rules and bring a follower, strange things will happen.
What's the story behind this mod?
Check out my interview with Elder Scrolls Off The Record here or my interview with Stevivor here!
If you're Level 5 or above, you'll be approached by a courier when you enter any city.
