Bethesda preps last Oblivion download

A year and a half after the free-roaming role-playing game debuted, developer announces final content add-on will arrive next week, free for a limited time.


SIDEBAR: 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 vintner, 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.
