We’ve been working with Bethesda to make Nokvroz’s sword in real life … and it’s really pretty awesome altogether

Ever looked at a weapon in a video game and wished it was real? Well, that’s what team Bethesda have been up to lately.

We were tasked to come up with something to celebrate the launch of Blackwood, part of Gates Of Oblivion – the latest chapter in the award-winning Elder Scrolls Online (ESO).

With the game being seven years old, we needed to think outside the box to appeal to not only its devoted fans and excite them ahead of the launch, but also to reach new audiences in a bid to demonstrate why ESO is still the cream of the crop all these years later.

So, we teamed up with British blacksmith extraordinaire, Alec Steele, to forge a real-life version of a weapon from the game!

The sword – wielded by Nokvroz in the new Gates of Oblivion chapter – was forged in temperatures of up to a sizzling 1000 degrees. Weighing in at a hefty 6.8kgs and measuring over 1.5m in length, Nokvroz’s epic sword took over 80 hours to make.

After a couple of teaser posts on Bethesda’s social channels, fans of the MMORPG went wild when the video of the forging process was published to Alec’s YouTube channel, with the video garnering over 192K views, 14K Likes and over 880 comments in just 24 hours … and counting!
