That's awesome. The taxidermist sounds cool.

The catch is that it's only available for one week!

Another noob question, can I download this even if I don't have the game in any capacity? I was going to get the GotY edition but I still couldn't see spending $60 on it. But I would snag this if I can use it later.

I play this game on and off since I haven't had a lot of free time to sit down and play though it (maybe over Christmas Break). I'll certainly grab the free DLC though.

Sweet! I sold my copy a while ago in anticipation of the GotY edition. I'll definitely be downloading this for when I buy it again.

Goddamn, do I love this game.

Very nice. Just getting started in the game, but free content is nice. I jumped on another free download (Someone's Razor) last Christmas when it was free and it's in the game I just bought now. You can even download and delete; as long as it's in your download history it'll be free for you whenever you want it.

Well, I was excited to find that Shivering Isle is getting it's own disc release (just saw it on an Amazon email). Still, I wonder why not release it with all of the DLC on that disc? What is the point of holding off on that content?

Also, does anyone know if another expansion pack is planned? There was 2 last time, but since they released a GOTY version of the game, I figured this last DLC might be it.

I believe they said in an interview that Shivering Isles was going to be the only full expansion.

Not that it'll matter, free dlc to my favorite game on the 360, I'm getting it.

That's my one bitch about the PS3 version, they are missing so much of the smaller add-ons. Yeah it's got KotN, and Shivering Isles, but it misses out on this and other goods (like horse armor).


I suppose, but you're really talking about the difference between 160 and 165 hours of gameplay, y'know? I do totally understand, but only think that the smallest portion of gamers will find that they've run out of things to do in Oblivion.

I know what pisses me off: getting RROD on my 360 this week so I can't download the content during its exclusive free week. I'll have to pay for it if I want it, since Microsoft has a console with a 100% failure rate. Thanks guys!

From the way the press release for this DLC was worded, you may be SOL unless you have a memory card and know afriend with XBL...this content is limited to this week only and it will be gone after that.

How likely is it that Blockbuster/Hollywood will have the GotY edition, though?


I dunno about Blockbuster but Hollywood didn't get it at all.

this blows I have no internet connection good enough for XBox Live right now..

Maybe they'll put it on an OXM disc someday in the future.. or in a uber-collectors edition.

He wouldn't even need a memory card, just someone he trusts enough with his account information. They recover on their 360 and download it so it's tied to his account, then he can redownload later.

No. It's free for a week, and will be priced after that.

First, I wanted to let you know that we are finally releasing the last piece of downloadable content we created for Oblivion. We had mentioned it a long, long time ago but we hadn’t released it, until now. Starting Monday, October 15 it will be available to download via Xbox Live (for Xbox 360) and elderscrolls.com (for PC). And, for one week, it will be free to anybody who wants to download it and play it. So mark it on your calendars and don’t forget.

Well, I snagged it last night...

Even though Oblivion is [highlight]the[/highlight] reason I wanted a 360 originally, I just haven't been able to pull the trigger on buying the game. I know it is such an incredible time-waster that I've been hesitant ;).

Played around in the Castle a little bit (before my disc froze...again.) Just make sure to check behind the archery room, you'll find something interesting :)

I bought all the castle upgrades except the Dwemer forge (I'll buy that in a bit), and it's a nice little base. Not as cool as Frostcrag, but fun. The taxidermist is a neat option. Now I just need to find some Dreadroth teeth. Might be hard since I closed all the oblivion gates >.<

There are a few places you can steal some from, and while I'm not sure, I'd check all of the Mage's Guild Halls, you're bound to find at least one set.

I haven't had a chance to go through the entire side quest that's attached to it, but it's a nice castle as far as I understand. It's northwest from the first abbey/monestary place you visit in the main quest.

You fend off maurader's and then take the castle. Then you get the joy of repaying the debt. I wonder what'll happen when I do... so that's the next "to do" item for me.

Oh, right, after I close the gate of Oblivion.
