On Monday, we brought you the news that The Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion would be getting a re-release in the form of the ‘5th Anniversary Edition’, ahead of Skyrim’s debut later this year. With the boxart now posted over at Amazon, it looks like trophies may well be included in this new edition of the game.
Of course, trophies would be a nice addition to the game – the question of their inclusion was the very first comment on that announcement post – but up to now, re-releases of older games on the PS3 have not usually been updated. As spotted by PSLS, the back of the new silver boxart shows ‘trophies’ alongside ‘add-on content’ in the PlayStation Network banner.
Now don’t get all too excited – we had almost exactly the same situation with Metal Gear Solid 4 last year and it turned out to be a typo. The difference though is the MGS4 re-release was just for the budget ‘Greatest Hits’ line in the US, whereas this is a fully-fledged ‘ultimate edition’ of Oblivion.
Take it with a pinch of salt of course until we get clarification from Bethesda, but this could just be the reason you were looking for to play through one of the greatest western RPGs of recent times all over again.
