The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion GotY Edition Ships

Bethesda Softworks announces that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition is now shipping in North America for both PC and Xbox 360, and the RPG sequel combined with the Shivering Isles expansion and the Knights of the Nine content will be available as early as tomorrow:

September 10, 2007 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media company, announced today that The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion® Game of the Year Edition (GotY) for Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows has begun shipping to retail stores throughout North America and will be in stores as early as Tuesday, September 11. Oblivion GotY includes the original version of the award-winning RPG, Oblivion, along with the official expansion, The Elder Scrolls® IV: Shivering Isles™, and the downloadable content, Knights of the Nine™.

This new product allows players who have never played the 2006 Game of the Year to experience Oblivion along with additional content. Gamers can also continue their existing games of Oblivion and experience the new quests and areas offered by the expansion and downloadable content.

Released in March 2006 for Windows and Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and in March 2007 for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Oblivion has already earned countless awards from publications around the world and won numerous Game of the Year and RPG of the Year awards. It has also recently achieved the status of both Xbox 360 Platinum Hit (North America) and Xbox 360 Classic (Europe). The Xbox 360 Platinum Hits and Classics programs allow existing gamers and new gamers alike to have access to great games at an amazing price.

Oblivion features a powerful combination of free-form gameplay, unprecedented graphics, cutting edge AI, character voices by acting legends Patrick Stewart, Sean Bean, Terrance Stamp, and Lynda Carter, and an award-winning soundtrack. Gamers can choose to unravel Oblivion’s epic narrative at their own pace or explore the vast world in search of their own unique challenges.

With more than 30 hours of new gameplay, Shivering Isles allows you to explore an entirely new plane of Oblivion – the realm of Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness. Shivering Isles features a bizarre landscape split between the two sides – Mania and Dementia –filled with vast, twisting dungeons mirroring the roots of the trees they are buried within. Sheogorath himself looks to you to be his champion and defend his realm and its inhabitants from destruction as you discover all new items, ingredients, spells, and much more.

Knights of the Nine features an all-new faction and quests for noble characters and answers many of the questions surrounding the Ayleid ruins found throughout Oblivion. Players can join a new faction and found their own order of holy knights – leading them into battle against a sorcerer-king and his demonic minions while exploring massive dungeons and searching for legendary relics – the holy armor and weapons of the Divine Crusader.

Oblivion GotY will be available for PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system from SCEA next month. In October, Bethesda Softworks will also ship Shivering Isles for Xbox 360 at retail as a standalone expansion.

Will this version replace the epitome of lazy design that is level scaling mobs with actual balanced mobs to reflect level progression? Is this the version that makes me care there is a story somehwere in the game? Is this the version that makes Oblivion an actual RPG where my choices mean something?

I weep for F3.

"Lol there it is again, how I love that sentence. WIll I or won't I describe Lynda Carter as an 'acting legend'? Oh, I'll just append her at the end and hope nobody will notice."

Not to mention the fact that (secret text)

Patrick stewart only voices the first 15 minutes of the game... kinda stupid to imply that you interact with that character for more than a few minutes

Just think in less than a year and a half we'll be able to download our first F3 micro add-on... the Power Armor!

A whole new audience can now experience the failings of Bethesda's RPG design. More grist for the moron mill.

If they still have the same lame monster leveling system forget it. That is what really ruined Oblivion for me. That and the retarded interface.

Does this version ship with all the mods that make the PC version an actual PC version?


What mods are you referring to? I have had this game since release but could never get into it until installing Oscuro's OBlivion overhaul.

Feel kinda bad that MW had two expansions by the time its GotY package was released. Oh well.

CHA-CHING!!!!

Really only one expansion as Knights of the Nine content pack should have been free.

Knights of the Nine is "kind of" an expansion, right? Anyway, by the time Morrowind got its 2nd expansion, was anyone still playing it? I know I wasn't. The only reason I even played Tribunal is that it came out before I was done with Morrowind. The Elder Scrolls games (at least the last 2) get boring too fast to support lots of expansions.

I guess Bethesda is focusing all their energy on Fallout 3 and abandoning Oblivion (at least for now).
