Since 1994, the Elder Scrolls series has been enthralling gamers with a sprawling world filled with classic fantasy tropes. In 2011, Skyrim brought the series to a prominence it had not yet seen with fantastic visuals, dragons, and shouting.
This week, Bethesda announced a collection for gamers who may not have played Elder Scrolls games other than Skyrim. The Elder Scrolls Anthology is a collection of every Elder Scrolls game yet released. The collection will be released for PC on September 10 (September 13 in Europe) and will cost $80/€60 / £50 / $90AUD.
The package includes The Elder Scrolls: Arena, The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. As older PC games, Arena and Daggerfall will both launch in DOS emulators. The version of Morrowind packaged in the anthology includes the Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansions, and Oblivion comes with that game’s Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles expansions. Skyrim comes with all three of its DLC packs – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
In addition to the on-disc content, the anthology will come with a physical (glossy paper, it appears) map of each game’s world map. The detailed maps will show off Iliac Bay, Morrowind, Cyrodill, Skyrim, and the whole of Tamriel.
