Prime Gaming Will Feature The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as Its Free Game for April, Includes Many Other Perks

Prime Gaming Will Feature The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion as Its Free Game for April, Includes Many Other Perks

There will be a ton of perks for all types of gamers in April’s Prime Gaming lineup. Its headliner is definitely The Elders Scrolls IV: Oblivion. This classic open-world RPG was released back in March 2006, a full 5 years before Skyrim.

Do note that the specific version being offered on Prime Gaming isn’t quite 100% clear yet. According to the Prime Gaming blog, the included game will be Oblivion – Game of the Year Edition Deluxe. However, the banner image only specifies Game of the Year Edition – no Deluxe mentioned. So, what’s the difference?

Prime Gaming and Oblivion

Oblivion is definitely a classic game, and one beloved by many. The predecessor to Skyrim was able to create a fully breathing and open world with unprecedented freedom. Oblivion pioneered the “Radiant AI” system that stepped up the NPCs from the previous game, Morrowind. This system added NPC routines so they actually had places to go and didn’t stand in place 24/7.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was one of the first games ever to announce DLC for a videogame. Who can forget their famous Horse Armor release? Bethesda released a total of 10 DLC for the game, including the Horse Armor.

The Deluxe and Regular Game of the Year Editions

Eventually, the company released the Game of the Year Edition and the GoTY Deluxe Edition. The former package included the base game as well as the Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine expansions. These two were substantial updates to the game that added multiple questlines, new continents, characters, enemies and weapons.

On the other hand, the Deluxe Edition included all of the DLC released. These are the rest of the contents available in this package, and what they are:

  • Horse Armor: stylish armour to protect your steed from the dangers of Cyrodiil.
  • Orrey: a questline wherein the Hero of Kvatch assists the Mages Guild repair the Imperial City’s orrery.
  • Wizard’s Tower: a player home that is mage themed, high atop the mountains.
  • Thieves Den: a player home for the more sneaky and deceitful characters
  • Mehrunes’ Razor: a questline that added the titular Mehrunes’ Razor to the game
  • Vile Lair: the perfect abode for our more evil characters
  • Spell Tomes: adds spell tomes that grant powerful magic when read
  • Fighter’s Stronghold: the last DLC released and a home for noble warriors.

The Rest of the Pack

As mentioned, there will be a total of 8 games in this month’s offerings. Quoted from the official Prime Gaming site are the rest of the games:

  • Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Prepare to kick some grass in a crazy, coniferous conflict between the brain-less and botanicals that will take players on a journey to the outer edges of Neighborville and back again.
  • Monkey Island™ 2 Special Edition: LeChuck’s Revenge™ — Wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood, and the now zombie pirate LeChuck, return in this LucasArts’ fan-favorite adventure game.
  • Nanotale — Typing Chronicles In the spiritual successor to the acclaimed Epistory, players can become a young archivist venturing out into a dying world, cataloging its mysteries and its wonders to unearth the truth of what is wrong with the heart of magic.
  • Guild of Ascension Craft weapons, befriend critters, encounter bizarre creatures and experience much more in this tactical-action-RPG with rogue-lite elements, mixing turn-based combat with real-time action combo systems.
  • Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion Play as an adorable yet trouble-making turnip who avoids paying taxes by solving plantastic puzzles, harvesting crops and battling massive beasts all in a journey to tear down a corrupt vegetable government.
  • Galaxy of Pen and Paper Create your very own game master and RPG party in the year of 1999! As characters roleplay, they will explore distant planets in their imagination, fight weird aliens and save the galaxy in the era of dial-up internet and floppy disks.
  • House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets Guide Kate Reed through four mind-bending mysteries that take her to worlds she’s never imagined on her quest to help the dead.

This small selection of indie games (sans Monkey Island and Plants vs Zombies) definitely looks interesting. The most interesting for RPG fans would be Nanotale – Typing Chronicles.

Nanotale is a top-down colorful RPG that looks to forego the usual battle mechanics. Instead of gathering XP points, Rosalind our protagonist grows stronger as she collects knowledge. As she is a novice Archivist, all info she gains is useful and can prepare her to meet the outside world.
