The Elder Scrolls Anthology! — August 1, 2013
The Elder Scrolls Anthology
Bethesda Softworks just announced an upcoming collection of all main Elder Scrolls games, titled The Elder Scrolls Anthology. The boxed set is for PC only and will include all the main titles in the series: Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. To sweeten the deal, the add-ons and expansion packs Tribunal and Bloodmoon for Morrowind, Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles for Oblivion, and Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn for Skyrim, will be included in the package. Alongside the games, there will also be maps of Tamriel, the Iliac Bay, Morrowind, Cyrodiil, and Skyrim for those lovers of cartography out there.
Notably, this package does not include Battlespire and Redguard, the other two games available on the PC. Pete Hines offered the explanation that the games are treated as spin-offs, and as such are not part of the series, in this tweet. The set will be released on September 10 (13 in Europe). It will be priced at $79.99 USD, €59.99, £49.99, and $89.99 AUD. See more details on this exciting release on BethBlog.
Update: In a followup update, it was announced that Morrowind and Oblivion would not come with the smaller DLC attached to the titles. While all of the Morrowind add-ons not included in the anthology are available for free, all of the Oblivion add-ons not previously mentioned will not be available with the boxed copy. As a solution to this issue, Steam keys for the Morrowind GOTY edition and the Oblivion Deluxe GOTY edition will be included with the games, with the version of Oblivion provided coming with all of the add-ons. However, the add-ons for Oblivion will not be compatible with the disc version provided in the box; people wanting to play Oblivion with all of the additions will have to launch it through Steam.
