Bethesda announces Oblivion expansion
Barely a year after the release of The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion, Bethesda Softworks has announced an expansion that will add a whopping 30 hours of new gameplay. Bethesda describes this Shivering Isles expansion as follows:
Shivering Isles features more than 30 hours of new gameplay and allows you to explore an entirely new plane of Oblivion – the realm of Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness. Shivering Isles adds to the existing world of Oblivion so you can continue playing with your existing save game/character, or create an all new character just to explore the new content. . . .
Within the Realm of Sheogorath, players can explore the two extreme sides of the god’s madness - the sublimely creative and the completely psychotic. Something is happening to the Shivering Isles and Sheogorath himself looks to you to be his champion and defend his realm and its inhabitants from destruction. Do you have the strength to survive his trials, tame a realm fraught with paranoia and despair, and wear the mantle of a God?
The PC version of The Elder Scrolls IV: Shivering Isles is scheduled to come out some time this spring. Bethesda and co-publisher 2K games will also release an Xbox 360 version of the expansion via Xbox Live.
