The modders behind Skywind, a complete rebuild of The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind in the more modern Skyrim engine, have released a new trailer showing off the Bitter Coast, or, as they call it, Slough.

Why have they named the area after a British town where hope goes to die? Well you’ll need to watch the video to find out.

Here’s that Skywind trailer:

Now, according to the comments under the video, the developer wasn’t meaning Slough as in the town but instead the word’s other definition “an area of soft, muddy ground; swamp or swamplike region.”

However, now the comparison’s been made, I can’t help but see the similarities. Can you spot the difference?
