We’re happy to announce that The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year plus all the downloadable content, and Call of Cthulhu are now available on Steam.

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year includes Morrowind and its expansions, Tribunal and Bloodmoon (available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian).

For Oblivion, you’ll have two different options to choose from. You can get The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year — which includes Oblivion plus expansions, Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles (available in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian).

Or get the “never available before in one package” called The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition Deluxe, which features Oblivion, Knights of the Nine, Shivering Isles and all the downloadable content, which includes the following (available only in English):

  • Horse Armor Pack
  • Wizard’s Tower
  • The Orrery
  • Thieves Den
  • Spell Tomes
  • Vile Lair
  • Mehrunes’ Razor
  • Fighter’s Stronghold

Want both Morrowind GOTY and Oblivion GOTY? You can save even more by purchasing The Elder Scrolls Game of the Year Pack (or Game of the Year Pack Deluxe).

Meanwhile, if you’re a fan of the works of H.P. Lovecraft, you really owe it to yourself to play Call of Cthulhu (available in English, French and German). When he heard it was going up on Steam, Emil Pagliarulo sent me this about Call of Cthulhu – “That game has some seriously terrifying sequences. Headfirst really did a great job of capturing the Cthulhu vibe. Actually getting to experience parts of Lovecraft’s short stories – like ‘The Shadow over Innsmouth’ -  is awesome.”

Some caveats: Steam is like Sandals. It’s all inclusive. So if you already own Oblivion but want to get the expansions or downloadable content, you need to own the Steam version of Oblivion. Which isn’t all that bad since it lets you toss that disk.

Happy downloading!

  1. This is great… the only “bad” thing is that there’s no way to unlock this game inside Steam if we already have the game… Some Steam games support that kind of unlock, using the own game serials.
    Although, the very low price it’s a good way to lower the damage…
    I’ve paid around 50€ for the GOTYE CD version a while back, so I’ll pass this one.

    What I’m still waiting for is a (significantly) reduced price for Fallout 3 in Steam… and the respective DLC’s. Don’t quite understand why DLC’s are not usually present through Steam… the platform is apparently perfect for it…

  2. Strictly speaking, Steam is only all-inclusive when the game you’re buying is designed that way, as Fallout 3 shows. ;)

  3. Thanks a lot, I’m grabbing these as I speak. Especially the Morrowind one, since I’ve scratched my disks to hell and back.

    Do you guys know if the executable is the same as the D2D version, or if it has some encryption on it that would make Oblivion Script Extender not work correctly?

  4. Just bought the GotY Deluxe pack :P . I had Oblivion on 360 and had been meaning to try Shivering Isles, not to mention the dozens of awesome PC mods :O. Also, I’ve been meaning to try Morrowind. So for €22.39 that was one mighty fine deal. Now just hurry up with that Fallout 3 PS3 DLC and I’ll be in heaven. (Or you could send me a copy of Fallout 3 for 360 or PC, so I don’t have to wait 4-6 weeks for new DLC 5 times over :\, still love you guys though )

  5. Do you guys know if the executable is the same as the D2D version, or if it has some encryption on it that would make Oblivion Script Extender not work correctly?

    I don’t know the specifics of the Script Extender, but Steam applications are indeed different from their retail counterparts. If the Script Extender is trying to hook into it, it probably won’t work.

  6. Are the steam versions mod friendly? I know with some games the steam version is less mod friendly, but with others they give you the editor with the game.

    I was wanting to get Morrowind and was planing on eventually getting PC Oblivion so this is actually a very appetizing package. The price is excellent.

  7. Congratulations Bethesda on having your excellent award winning customer satisfying products available on a dependable quality service that is STEAM :D

  8. Are the steam versions mod friendly? I know with some games the steam version is less mod friendly, but with others they give you the editor with the game.

    The Steam version should happily play along with any mods that don’t edit the game’s executable.

  9. That’s awesome – congratz Beth.

    Now, dare I ask for Daggerfall? – I think I do, Bethesda do you think you could work something out about Daggerfall? That would be really cool.

  10. So…people won’t be allowed to get them off obliviondownloads.com anymore? What?……sheesh, I’m glad I backed up my installation files….

    FYI, some people don’t like to use Steam…I may be a rarity but I don’t like a multiplayer client for my single player game

  11. Dev, OBSE won’t work with Steam? Is it because the .exe is the same as the wretched Direct2Drive one?

    I’m glad Bethesda finally jumped on the Steam Wagon. It’s one of the best ways not only to safeguard Bethesda’s Interest, but to give us a direct product, without a ridiculous disc check.

  12. $28 for both Morrowind and Oblivion, which includes the DLCs, is a great deal. I already own both games and most of the DLCs, but since my computer literally just died last week this deal is a no-brainer for me (steam makes it easy for me to re-install games I already bought).

    Thanks Bethesda; keep up the great work and I’ll continue to give you my money :)

    So, TES V is due out when?

  13. I agree with what max said, I own Morrowind and Oblivion myself. I can’t read the disc on my computer… If I could register, I could play Oblivion… But I am currently just playing morrowind. =( Please let us register

  14. Any word on why these games all of a sudden jumped in price today? (for example, GOTY pack deluxe is $10 more expensive now) I bought the GOTY deluxe package right when it came out (thankfully) as it was a fantastic deal (even though I own both games already), but I feel bad for people who hesitated and now face much higher prices (yet as of 6/18/09, 5:47PM Central).

  15. What Rentner said. I’d love to be able to have Morrowind and Oblivion on Steam, but a lack of MWSE and OBSE support are deal-breakers, especially considering how many top-of-class mods require them.

    (Well, I’ll probably not pick them up on Steam anyway because I don’t like paying again for something I already have [especially since one of the reasons for Steam is letting people avoid doing just that] but even if you did set up the product activation thing with Valve I’d still not hook up my CD keys until there was a guarantee that the extenders would be allowed to play nice.)

  16. man im fairly new to gaming only started about… hmm i guess when i got world of warcraft although i dont play it anymore, anyway i tried to play marrowind but its just so old that it got very tiresome really quickly. also the fact that there is no autosave and my computer kept on shutting down every 30 minutes or so didnt help either, too bad that Morroblivion mod doesnt work too well :(
