E3 '07: Oblivion GOTY edition announced

Bethesda's epic PC, 360, and PS3 RPG will be getting a special Game of the Year edition that will include both expansion packs.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.--Bethesda Softworks' open-world role-playing game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will be joining its processor Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind in the Game of the Year edition club. In September, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 GOTY editions of the game will hit retail in North America. The new version will include the original game, expansion pack The Shivering Isles, and the extra content pack The Knights of the Nine. The GOTY edition is $59.99 for 360 and PS3 and $49.99 for PC and will be rated M for Mature like the original game.

Oblivion was released in April 2006 on the 360 and PC, and in March 2007 on the PlayStation 3. The fantasy RPG starts with the main character escaping from prison only to find his native realm of Cyrodiil overrun with Daedra, demonic creatures from the realm of Oblivion. The protagonist then allies with the late emperor's illegitimate son, who is determined to rid the world of the aforementioned hellish invasion.

The expansion pack The Shivering Isles added the realm of Sheogorath, ruled by the Daedric prince of madness. It contained around 30 extra hours of gameplay, as well as new creatures, dungeons, and quests. Knights of the Nine contained extra content including the titular faction and new quests, weapons, and armor.

I may have to get this. I still have three other games that I need to beat but this could be for after I beat those games and after all the other games come out this year.

I actually borrowed oblivion from a friend and thought about downloading the expansion for myself. This would probably be a better option as I could return my friends game to him ;).

Of course you can load your own game, this isn't a new game... its just all all three games in one package (and maybe on one disc). I'm so lucky I found out about this -- I was about to buy oblivion for $50, and I figured it would be better to wait a few weeks and spend 10 bucks more. Edit: I just wanted to let everyone know that this is $100 value (on PC)

Does anybody know if the glitches from the original will be patched up, or do you need to go to xbox's web site?

Just traded-in the original 360 Oblivion for $44 and waiting to pick this up, Figure it's a great deal to get Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine for $16.

So if you already have Oblivion, you'll be rebuying it - or is it just the expansions? I would probably get it, just as long as you can use the same save file on the expansion.... :P

I can't wait to get a non-CTD-on-exit KotN game!!! Yay! I'm just wondering about mods- if they screw something up, and mods don't work on GotY... I'll be forced to dust off my AK47...

How are they going to fit all that extra stuff onto a DVD for the 360 version? Will they have an extra disc to download all of the add-ons to your hard drive?

Im still wondering on if i should get the PC or Xbox cause i dont want to let this amazing rig im running go to waste just by playing sup com and CNC3 and i wont have to w8 for my 360 to get fixed and i could also use mods and cheats but on the Xbox i could chat with friends, have an easier controll layout, and get extra content off the marketplace as well as not have to worry about crashes or errors. Lol the irony is that my old copy of oblivion for the xbox is busted..and so is my xbox so even if i buy a new copy i still gotta w8 for repairs

Wow im an idiot, I should have seen this coming. I got Morrowind for christmas one year and traded it in for the game of the year edition a few months later when it came out. Now, a few days ago I bought Oblvion collectors edition for $50 and now they are making GOTY.....oh well, this game is bad a** anyway!
