The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to be PlayStation 3 launch title

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will be a PlayStation 3 launch title in both North America this November and Europe next March.

Developer/publisher Bethesda Softworks confirmed the long-standing rumour this week, and will publish the game itself in the US while Ubisoft serves as co-publisher in Europe.

The company also revealed that a PSP instalment, The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion, is in development and should be released in the US and Europe next spring.

"We're very excited to be able to bring a game like Oblivion out for launch for the PlayStation 3," said Bethesda Softworks president, Vlatko Andonov.

"Oblivion's countless awards and commercial success to date make it clear that PlayStation 3 owners are in for a real treat this November."

Oblivion is one of the highest-rated games on the Xbox 360 and PC platforms, for which it was published by 2K Games.

Early previews explain that the PS3 edition will include new content, including the introduction of a new faction, the Knights of the Nine, which players can join, along with new characters, locations, armour and weapons.

The PSP game, meanwhile, will be set in a different region.
