Before we look forward to Skyrim, we first look back to Oblivion.Last week we marked the fifth anniversary of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion’s release. In this episode of the podcast, we revisit the game that served as a landmark for Bethesda. Listen as key team members recount their memories of working on the project, followed by a roundtable discussion with Todd Howard and Pete Hines.
While many of you (and us) are looking ahead to Skyrim’s release (t-minus 236 days), today marks an opportunity to look back at its predecessor, Oblivion, which released five years ago today.
Have a favorite Oblivion memory? Whether it’s from pre-launch, launch day, or the countless hours you played and modded the game, share them with us in the comments section.
