Oblivion Gold, Ships in Mere Weeks

The Elder Scrolls IV is, at last, officially complete.

March 2, 2006 - It's been a long wait, but after much drooling and speculation, Bethesda at last announced an official ship date for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: both the PC and Xbox 360 versions will arrive in stores March 20.

Happily, the game is now officially gold, meaning Bethesda has finished work on the epic RPG title. As ambitious as any Elder Scrolls game -- in fact, even more so -- Oblivion promises vast, non-linear gameplay, advanced "Radiant" A.I., countless side quests, action-heavy combat, and next-generation visuals.

"Our most ambitious project ever is finally done," said executive producer Todd Howard. "We're excited to get the game into everyone's hands and let them experience it for themselves. We hope they enjoy it. I think it's our best game yet."

"Oblivion will set the new standard for next generation gaming and change the way role-playing games are viewed forever," said Bethesda president Vlatko Andonov. "We set very high goals and ensure they are reached because that is what our fans deserve and have come to expect from Bethesda Softworks. We are very proud of our team's accomplishments with respect to Oblivion."

Along with the standard edition, Bethesda and publisher 2K Games will release The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Collector's Edition, which features a media-packed bonus DVD, a replica Septims coin, and a 112-page "Pocket Guide to the Empire."

Oblivion is the latest primary chapter in Bethesda's long-running Elder Scrolls series, which began in 1994 with Arena, followed by Daggerfall in 1996 and Morrowind in 2002.

March 20th yall.
