The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion® Game of the Year Edition presents one of the best RPGs of all time like never before. Step inside the most richly detailed and vibrant game-world ever created. With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and unprecedented graphics, you can unravel the main quest at your own pace or explore the vast world and find your own challenges.

Also included in the Game of the Year edition are Knights of the Nine and the Shivering Isles expansion, adding new and unique quests and content to the already massive world of Oblivion. See why critics called Oblivion the Best Game of 2006.


Key Features:

  • Live Another Life in Another World

    Create and play any character you can imagine, from the noble warrior to the sinister assassin to the wizened sorcerer.

  • First Person Melee and Magic

    An all-new combat and magic system brings first person role-playing to a new level of intensity where you feel every blow.

  • Radiant AI

    This groundbreaking AI system gives Oblivion's characters full 24/7 schedules and the ability to make their own choices based on the world around them. Non-player characters eat, sleep, and complete goals all on their own.

  • New Lands to Explore

    In the Shivering Isles expansion, see a world created in Sheogorath's own image, one divided between Mania and Dementia and unlike anything you've experienced in Oblivion.

  • Challenging new foes

    Battle the denizens of Shivering Isles, a land filled with hideous insects, Flesh Atronachs, skeletal Shambles, amphibious Grummites, and many more.

  • Begin a New Faction

    The Knights of the Nine have long been disbanded. Reclaim their former glory as you traverse the far reaches of Cyrodill across an epic quest line.

The weakest out of the modern TES titles, but still great.

Oblivion was great for new fans of TES, but disappointing for the long-established fan base. My largest criticism, besides the terrible main story, was level/gear-scaling (highwaymen should never have Daedric armor) and generic dungeons with no reason to explore them.

Those criticisms largely killed the fun and experience of the game, but putting them aside, this is a great experience overall. Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine are great additional content for Oblivion. The Dark Brotherhood questline was unparalleled and iconic. Radiant AI, albeit scaled back, was revolutionary and really brought the world to life. Even the visuals at the time were cutting edge (not the potato faces).

Oblivion wasn't perfect, but it pushed the TES brand forward in a lot of ways. Definitely a game worth picking up if you like BGS games.

One of the greatest games ever mad

I have never felt so into a game before. I spent 50 hours on one character in a week span just endlessly playing through various tasks and quests. The storyline is deep and the NPCs are fun. The DLC adds more value and quests to the game. I hope every gamer has a chance to play this game.

A must-have!

One of my all-time favourite games. RPGs for me started with this game: catching a glimpse of it at a friend's house when it first came out was enough to make me buy it later that day - and I'm still playing it! The question you might be asking yourself is: "Why would I buy this when Skyrim already has it all?". Honestly, it may be beacuse this game was the first in the series for me, but Oblivion still feels much more varied in quest types and scenarios (perhaps a slightly better plot too?) than Skyrim. With missions ranging from finding a painting thief by investigating clues, to stepping INSIDE a painting to rescue the painter from painted trolls, to saving the world from Oblivion, there is never a boring quest and you will find yourself longing to return to Tamriel even just to walk down the streets of Cyrrodil and listen to the locals chat about the latest events in what really feels like a living and breathing world. Give it a try, I promise you will not regret it.

The best of the Elder Scrolls series.

Anyone can play this game. This game can be played so many ways. After playing for years, I can say this game is that one game that you can always go back to. Play for a month straight, get distracted, and you'll come right back and the game will stay just as appealing. Even after having played for so long, I'm still finding quests that I haven't seen and places that I don't recognize. With the Shivering Isles, that's just added on to. It's a beautiful game and you won't want to miss out.
