Elder Scrolls Anthology Announced

Bethesda has announced The Elder Scrolls Anthology.

What, no Horse Armor for Oblivion included?

RIPOFF.

Just kidding. This is amazing value, I might pick it up just to get working copies of Arena, Daggerfall -- and the maps. Seriously, the maps are worth it alone, I picked up Skyrim digitally through Steam and really wish I hadn't.

I don't game on PC all that much, having only a laptop, and have nowhere near enough time in my life to devote to these kinds of games anymore... but I will probably get this just to have it, in case I ever do by chance obtain the time or hardware. Also, the box and maps look pretty.

You know you can get Arena and Daggerfall from the Elder Scrolls website, for free? A slightly clunky setup, but would come under your definition of "working copies".

Damn, if only this had been announced a few months ago, I would have decided then and there to get a gaming PC for the next generation. Either way, I will hope to find this whenever I do get a good enough computer.

The Knights of the Nine expansion includes all DLC for the PC version. So you'll get your horse armor if you buy this package.

OT: Too bad I already own all the games and their DLCs in this package, excluding the first two games, because they're freely available from Bethesda. Only reason for me to get this would be for the maps and the box itself.

I couldn't get either game to work when they first released them there. I'll have to see if the copies in this collection are different somehow.

Insert obligatory "Shut up and take my money!" image here. Now if you don't mind I'm going to sit in a corner and drool for a month...

I would say "take my money", except I own all of these. Or at least, the 3 that aren't already free.

Oddly enough, I only have Oblivion on the PC (Morrowind disappeared in the ether years ago), so this is definitely being bought.

(I may have also made a totally inappropriate noise when I saw what the anthology included.)

No console version?

*Crys*

The again suppose its to much to get Morrowind, Daggerfall and Arena to work on the 360/ps3

Well, I kinda own already pretty much all of them. Well daggerfall and Arena I don't but you get what I mean.

It is kinda though to make this a worthy purchase. Still someone will love and buy it I am sure!

*Downloads Arena and Daggerfall* Well that was easy now I got the full collection. Awesome!

...Does it have Battlespire?

Probably not :(

I hope TES VI is located in Elsweyr. The khajiit are due for a lore exploration. We've already experienced in-depth lore surrounding Orsinium, High Rock, Hammerfall(TWICE!), Skyrim, Cyrodiil, and Morrowind. All that's left are Valenwood, Elsweyr, Summerset Isles, and Black Marsh.

Morrowind can be played on 360... it just suffers from even worse load times than the OG Xbox :P

I have to imagine a collection like this would include all that extra little DLC they did. I hope it does at least.

Personally I want to see Valenwood and the beautiful forests of the Bosmer.

Well, considering I've never played any of the TES games before Oblivion, I'll probably get this to be able to play the original few games. I did try Daggerfall years ago, but I was too young to have the patience for it then. Plus the maps are a neat edition.

Why what was the problem?

Digital = no map. Sure I could print a PDF of it, but that's not the same.

Oh i see i guess i assumed you meant something wrong with steam. I bought Skyrim for Xbox initially so i already had a map but it does suck you don't get it with the steam edition.

...... where is Cyrus ??!

Goddamnit.

For storyline, I still think Redguard was the best, the Game that Time Forgot.
