Unbelievable Skyrim Mod Lets You Use Dishonored's Powers

Have you ever, while playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, thought, "This is great, but what it really needs is Blink from Dishonored?" If so, you are probably me. Or maybe you are Madrilous, the clever person behind a new Skyrim mod called Gifts of the Outsider.

Gifts of the Outsider adds six new abilities to the PC version of Skyrim, all from Dishonored: Bend Time, Void Gaze, Possession, Wind Blast, Devouring Swarm... and Blink.

Oh yes. Blink.

This makes me so happy.

This mod adds the six signature abilities of Dishonored into Skyrim through a quest featuring fully voice acted Outsider.

The spells are as follows:

  • Blink: Leap across distances instantaneously.
  • Void Gaze: See in darkness and detect beings through walls
  • Devouring Swarm: Summon a horde of rats to distract or kill your opponents
  • Possession: Take control of a being, appearing directly behind them once the effect has ended.
  • Wind Blast: Blast away your opponents with a powerful gust of wind.
  • Bend Time: Slow time to a crawl for everyone but yourself. Great for escaping a difficult situation.

You can begin the quest by heading to abandoned houses on the shores of Lake Honrich, west of Riften.

If you wish to add the spells without completing the quest then simply use the help command from the console menu. Use help “” to return the spell id. Then use player.addspell to add it.

You can download the mod right here.


    Mods like this makes you wonder if Bethesda were kind of lazy with their ingame powers... I love Skyrim but in the end it felt kind of bland. The mods however, just make it excel so much.

      what is it with all these late mods coming out dammit. i dont need another reason to get back into skyrim!

    That is actually really cool. Might go give it a shot.

    Now this is a mod worthy of my attention (unlike that god awful pokemon reskinning 'mod' featured the other day)

    I was wonder what is the actual console command for the bend time ability because I'be tried "help bendtime" and "help bend time" but neither of those worked! so... help?
