Oblivion gets one more piece of DLC

Oblivion gets one more piece of DLC

The Fighter's Stronghold will go on sale for Xbox 360 and PC on October 15th.

Oblivion is still king of the RPG genre to many and there of those of us in the office who still continue to invest hour upon hour in the virtual world of Tamriel. If you're like us then and have come close to exploring every single nook, cranny and community-made quest, then you'll be pleased to know that Bethesda is making on final piece of downloadable content available for the game soon.

Titled Fighter's Stronghold, the new pack will be available over Xbox Live for 360 owners and on the Internet for PC gamers, and will go on sale on October 15th. It'll also be free for a week so that all gamers will have a chance to test it out and see if it's actually worth the cash or just a needless expense, like Horse Armour was.

The content itself will provide a series of new quests and a castle for players to take control of. The pack is obviously aimed at fighter characters, but is open to everyone.

The castle itself will include a new combat trainer, a taxidermist to make trophies for you and even a vintner who will create special wines in your honour.

Unfortunately, the pack won't be available on the PlayStation 3 version any time soon. Bethesda insists that it is "close, very close to working something out to bring Shivering Isles to PS3 owners", but Shivering Isles is sooo yesterday by now and has been open to PC and 360 owners for a while now.

So, will you be picking up a copy of the new pack or has Oblivion been sitting un-played on your desktop for a while now? Let us know what you think of the downloadable packs and the game itself in the forums.

Morrowind is king of the RPG genre, along with Diablo II LOD.

I guess after spending 92hours in the game doing the side quests, I should REALLY consider actually starting the main game quest, net alone shivering isles also.

Same here, put it away after the first weekend of owning it, Morrowind was much better IMO. I've heard Oblivion is pretty good once you mod the hell out of it, but I really can't be bothered to go to that much effort.

Oblivion was fun, but i never thought it was good as it seemed to be deemed ....

And the DLC was a joke, what a rip off

Im still trying to force myself to play oblivion because after the first 5 mins I though WTF is this crap. I thought the point of the game of the year edition is that it has all the download content in it. Now the Game of the Year folks still need to download to have the complete game.

Oh look another frivolous addition. THANKS BEHEDESA!

You know, if they put the effort of this frankly pants DLC into a more solid form, we'd have another exp. Shivering Isles was great.

I like the DLC as a cheaper way to get property in the game. Wizards tower + a few grand = a awesome place to store stuff and do alchemy, etc.

Worth it to me. Plus you really can't put a price on having a well dressed horse, I don't know how you think horse armour was a waste.

It's the same thing for me, and the mod forum contributes a great deal to that. There's just no end to the mods being produced by the community.
Here's a nice thread with graphics-, sound- and gameplay-enhancing mods which will make the game even more goodlooking and atmospheric There's also a section in there (Overhaul) that has mods that changes the gameplay a lot. Worth checking out for those who did not like Oblivion as Bethesda intended it ;)

Guilty I still haven't finished either Morrowind and Oblivion.
