Oblivion: Shivering Isles expansion tidbit

For all you Oblivion fans out there (ie, everyone except Ron “I hate Paris Hilton” Workman), CVG has managed to source a few details about the game’s expansion, Shivering Isles, from the latest issue of PC Zone. Read on for a few minor details:

Revealed in the latest edition of PC Zone magazine, word is that the expansion will offer 30-plus hours of new adventuring, features new quests, monsters, expanded freeform gameplay – quest lines that branch more than before, for example – and a new land “that you can watch change according to your vital life-or-death decisions”.

Setting the scene, it’s explained that an ominous-looking gate has opened in Nibben Bay, the portal leading to a torn realm – the Shivering Isles – ruled by Sheogorath, the god of madness and dementia. Apparently, adventurers will meet the god and “plough through his trials”, but it’s additionally hinted that ultimately we may well be usurping the deity. A ETA of Q2 2007 has been given.

30 hours of gameplay and usurping deities? God of madness? We have a winner.
