Images of Oblivion: Mehrunes' Razor

There will soon be a new DLC pack for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion released, with the name Mehrunes' Razor. The ones who buy it are promised "the biggest dungeon in Cyrodiil", with some new books and items added in it - and of course, with some secret treasures. The price is now 2.99$ (for the PC version), where the old DLC's have been at around 1.89$ (150 Marketplace points). Except around 250p for this one, and here are some images of it.

This is what iv missed in Oblivion, massive dungeons, i wish they could to a copy of Moria, that big hall with all the pillars in would be nice to run around in, the dungeons in rpg's are allways caves, or most of them atleast, never any big and epic dungeons.

I get the feeling that the developers are still having ideas and inspiration after launch. In the days before DLC they were stuck waiting for a sequel or their next project but now they can put the idea in the game for those who want to buy it.

There are just more stories to tell? More adventures to go on? I can't wait for this one.

Wait, is this cave in the game allready? just simply locked until you pay for it?

Or is it actually developed after the game was finished?

The DLC stuff is developed after the game was finished.

So mehrunes razor is included i guess? Isn't that the wepon that kills anything on first hit?
By the way there isn't any content available to european players yet, right (sucks)?

Not really, the horse armour was finished before the game came out, dunno about the others.

Anyways i gave Oblivion back last week, spent 150 hours on it, not bad value for money, would've probably kept it had they bought out the patch sooner.

If you don't want it, don't buy it, easy. I'll sure get it.
Commented on 2006-06-02 09:06:48
I can't believe there's people not willing to buy this game. Simply put this game needs to be inside every console around the world at all times.

not exactly, they've been feature locked for a long time, so even if they mademo re stuff (like the stuff thats coming out) they couldn't add it cuz they were donig all the bug fixing and optimizing.

I like how the Oblivion content is always so cheap as opposed to other games, plus they are releasing so much content, all very high quality. For an example the new map for PDZ is $5...
Commented on 2006-06-05 01:20:07
I've been gone for a week, and havent played Oblivion in months. Has there even been a patch yet to fix some of glitches? I have 940 of the GP and I cant get the last 60 because the Fighter's guild quest is broken for me. I really wish they would fix this before adding content...

On another note, Blim, have you ever been to St. Maarten? I was just wondering because I just got back from there and I really enjoyed it.

You people are wrong. These new DLC packs are taking only 2 MBs on HDD. What makes you think they're THAT short? Now a good example is Halo 2 maps. Since they were made after the game was released, they take over 400 MBs on HDD. Same goes for Splinter Cell and other games.

One more thing: These new DLC packs are being released after every 2 weeks or so. There's NO way they can finish making them so fast. In conclusion, they're more like unlock keys just like the ones you see for Ridge Racer 6. This was definitely their plan to squeeze more money out of gamers.

Now I think all these secrets are invisible in game right now, the 2 MB file just makes them visible so you can enter. I have nothing against it though. I bought all of them and will continue to purchase since I love this game.

Two things: You cant compare Xbox 1 and Xbox 2 game downloads and saves. On the original xbox, a hard drive was mandatory, so a lot of devs got VERY sloppy with their compression. Look at the save files for KOTOR. They were MASSIVE, something like 4 megs each, I forget. That doesn't fly anymore because everything needs to fit on a 64mb memory card on XBL now to accomodate Core users, with the exception of HD movies and (Non-Arcade) game demos.


In addition, a multiplayer map for games like Halo and Splinter Cell use all-new assets. For a game like Oblivion, all they need to include is a general layout of the new area and pull from existing resources (eg: generic cave wall, generic wooden door, computer generated grass and trees, etc). They dont reinvent the wheel on these things.

The one new thing they might have is new weapon designs (possibly), and new voice work. However, voice files can be extremely compressed, as can wireframes. 2mb or so doesn't sound unreasonable. Morrowind GotY Edition for Xbox clocked in at a measley 800mb, if I recall, and the game was obviously quite massive. I've heard Oblivion is 2 gigs or so, and a good chunk of that was dedicated to an HD sized intro video.
