Oblivion Expansion Confirmed!

First concrete details have emerged on Shivering Isles, Bethesda's first expansion pack for its RPG epic The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Revealed in the latest edition of PC Zone magazine, word is that the expansion will offer 30-plus hours of new adventuring, features new quests, monsters, expanded freeform gameplay - quest lines that branch more than before, for example - and a new land "that you can watch change according to your vital life-or-death decisions".

Setting the scene, it's explained that an ominous-looking gate has opened in Nibben Bay, the portal leading to a torn realm - the Shivering Isles - ruled by Sheogorath, the god of madness and dementia. Apparently, adventurers will meet the god and "plough through his trials", but it's additionally hinted that ultimately we may well be usurping the deity. A ETA of Q2 2007 has been given.

PC Zone #177, which hits shelves today, has first screenshots from Shivering Isles and further information on the expansion - so, go grab it Oblivion fans.

I'm guessing PC only :(

I still havent beaten it though. theres so much to do.. and COD3 online is soo addictive

It'll be on 360 I'm sure. Infact I bet the 360 sold more copies than the pc of oblivion and its addons. In any event itll prob be on market place just at a higher price than other content.

Oh yes! i played Oblivion for soooo long, and finally finished the main quest, and probably 3/4 of the others... what an awesome game...

It didn't say every game. IIRC it gave a list of the games on which content was already on the disc. Nowhere did it state that every Xbox 360 game has the same design to allow the user to unlock content.

Actually, it's already on your Oblivion disc, you just need a key to unlock it!
