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!

Inside the Vault: Gavin Carter

This week’s Inside the Vault is about Gavin Carter, our lead producer on Fallout 3. Gavin is responsible for one of my favorite Elder Scrolls quests – Tribunal’s A Star is Born, which involved the player acting in a play. We tried to reprise the concept of the “play” quest for Oblivion, but unfortunately, it ended up on the cutting room floor. Gavin has been involved with Fallout 3’s development from the very start, and he will be responsible for getting it to the finish line, as well (No pressure, Gav).

This will be our last Inside the Vault for 2007. I believe these interviews are a great way to learn more about the passionate, fascinating people working here at the studio. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about them as much as I have.
