The long-awaited Oblivion represents the quintessential role-playing experience for the next-generation of gaming, inviting gamers into the sprawling environments of Tamriel, the most vibrant game-world ever created. With a powerful combination of freeform gameplay and lush, unprecedented graphics, gamers can choose to unravel Oblivion’s epic narrative or simply explore the vast landscape in search of their own unique challenges.
Oblivion’s story begins with the mysterious assassination of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, leaving the kingdom’s throne dangerously vacant. With the Empire ready to crumble, the gates of Oblivion are thrust open, scattering demons and other hellish creatures across the countryside. To turn the tide, gamers must journey to find the Emperor’s lost heir and defeat the plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel.
