Software Update: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 1.2

Spread the love

Bethesda Softworks released a new patch the day before yesterday for Oblivion, the fourth part of the popular series of role playing games The Elder Scrolls. In that game you have to look for the heir to the throne of the emperor, who was murdered by an unknown killer. It’s up to you to find the heir to the throne and unravel the plot behind the murder. The game world is so big that you can spend hours with all kinds of so-called side quests, without having to worry about the story described above for a single moment. Patch 1.2 is available for PC and Xbox 360 and includes the following changes and improvements:
