Bethesda Announces The Elder Scrolls Anthology
Did you really need another reason to be a PC Gamer? If youÂre a new or old fan of The Elder Scrolls saga, youÂll have the chance to experience the classic adventures of the series once again next month when Bethesda releases The Elder Scrolls Anthology, a collection of several games from the series that includes Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim as well as several DLCs on the PC. Here's a list of what games you'll find in the box:
Arena Â Assume the role of a lone prisoner and travel to TamrielÂs most famous and dangerous sites to collect the shattered Staff of Chaos and save the Empire from the evil Imperial battlemage, Jagar Tharn. The Anthology features the original version of Arena and will launch within a DOS emulator.
Daggerfall Â The ancient golem Numidium, a powerful weapon once used to unify Tamriel has once again been unearthed. In the power struggle that follows, the King of Daggerfall is murdered and his vengeful spirit haunts the kingdom. The Emperor Uriel Septim VII sends you on a heroic path to put the kingÂs spirit to rest and ensure that the golem does not fall into the wrong hands. The Anthology features the original version of Daggerfall and will launch within a DOS emulator.
Morrowind Â To fulfill an ancient prophecy, the Emperor sends you, an unknown Imperial courier, to the island of Vvardenfell to rid the land of Morrowind of a dark curse. Through a series of dangerous and magical quests, you are transformed into one of the EmpireÂs most enduring heroes. Also includes: Tribunal and Bloodmoon add-ons, plus The Elder Scrolls Construction Set.
Oblivion Â With the Empire ready to crumble, the gates of Oblivion open and demons march upon the land. In the shadow of evil, a hero will rise from the ashes of a fallen Empire. You must find the true heir of the Septim line and restore him to the Imperial throne, while unraveling the sinister plot that threatens to destroy all of Tamriel. Also includes: Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles expansions.
Skyrim Â Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons. Also includes: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn add-ons.
The premium box set is priced at $79.99 (Â59.99 / Â£49.99 / $89.99AUD) and also comes with collectible maps for Tamriel, Iliac Bay, Morrowind, Cyrodiil and Skyrim to help players on their journey.
The Elder Scrolls Anthology is scheduled to release on September 10th in the US and September 13th in EU. The Elder Scrolls Online is scheduled to launch in spring 2014, so you have plenty of time to get caught up.
