You gotta wonder how they do it, department: Bethesda keeps the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion train rolling onward with two additional console releases and another downloadable pack (at least if you’re a 360 or PC owner). First up is The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion: Game of the Year Edition for the Playstation 3. The GOTY contains the original game along with the Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine expansions, allowing PS3 owners who haven’t yet had the chance to dive into the gorgeously deep game world with the potential for hundreds of hours of gameplay at their disposal. The Shivering Isles retail expansion for the 360 also contains the Nights of the Nine content and requires an original Oblivion save on your hard drive in order to enjoy its 30+ hours of quests and challenges.

In addition, PC and 360 owners looking for still MORE Oblivion content can download the Fighter’s Stronghold pack for FREE until Sunday, October 21 over at elderscrolls.com (PC) or over Xbox Live (360). Here’s what you can expect from this pack:

Defeat the attacking marauders and become lord of Battlehorn Castle. Located in the Colovian Highlands west of Chorrol, this expansive castle will allow you to live the life of a noble warrior, with private quarters, grand dining hall, wine cellar, barracks, training room and more. And what castle would be complete without a few hidden passages and dark secrets?


* A fully detailed castle for you to explore

* Knights of the True Horn patrol the castle and do your bidding

* Secret treasure vault

* Upgrade the furnishings in every area of the castle

* Hire a vintner to create special wines to enhance your fighting abilities

* Hire a combat trainer to spar with

* Hire a taxidermist to craft lifelike trophies for your great hall

* Purchase an ancient Dwemer Forge that buffs your Armorer skill

So what are you waiting for? Once you enter Oblivion, you’ve got even more reason to never leave the house, right?
