While the list of things to do in Bethesda Softworks' The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion may seem endless, the flow of downloadable content for the game is most definitely not. Bethesda has announced on the game's official Web site that the Fighter's Stronghold plug-in, the last of nine official add-ons to the game (not counting the Shivering Isles expansion) will be released for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game on Monday.

Fighter's Stronghold gives players the deed to Battlehorn Castle and command over its Knights of the True Horn guard. Those who obtain the stronghold can also find a secret treasure room, hire a combat trainer, a vinter, and a taxidermist, and purchase an array of furnishings to restore the keep's regal air. Perhaps best of all, the add-on will be free to download for its first week.

Games like this should have more DLC, yes they have given us allot but a game like this you can just keep playing and people would pay for the new additions. It's graphics still look great

It's kind of a bittersweet thing. I'm glad that this new add-in will be free but I'm sad to hear that it will be the last add-in.

Cool. The mod community has done amazing things with this game, so it's nice to see the devs do some too. Plug-ins + User-developed mods = endless gameplay! So happy I have this for PC.

I bought Oblivion on the day it came out and for the first few days I was completely hooked and amazed by the free roaming so much that I paid next to no attention to the main quest. After clocking about 30 hours though I have kind of got bored of it and barely played it for a long time. I will download this because it is free and sounds pretty cool but at the same time I am happy that they are moving on from Oblivion and focusing their efforts on Fallout 3 which I think I will enjoy more than Oblivion.

for the "ring of death" people, it takes microsoft a MONTH to repair your 360. --- took me 2 - 3 weeks the first time.
