*March 27, 2007 (Rockville, MD)* — Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media
company, and 2K today announced that*/ The Elder Scrolls® IV: Shivering
Isles™/*, the official expansion for the award-winning*/ The Elder
Scrolls IV: Oblivion®/*, is now shipping to retail stores throughout
North America for Windows.*/ Shivering Isles/* is also available today
on Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft via Xbox
Live® online entertainment network.

*/Shivering Isles/* features more than 30 hours of new gameplay and
allows you to explore an entirely new plane of Oblivion – the realm of
Sheogorath, the Daedric Prince of Madness.*/ Shivering Isles/* adds to
the existing world of*/ Oblivion/* so you can continue playing with your
existing save game/character, or create an all new character just to
explore the new content.

Within the Realm of Sheogorath, players can explore the two extreme
sides of the god’s madness – the sublimely creative and the completely
psychotic. Something is happening to the Shivering Isles and Sheogorath
himself looks to you to be his champion and defend his realm and its
inhabitants from destruction. Do you have the strength to survive his
trials, tame a realm fraught with paranoia and despair, and wear the
mantle of a God?

The Shivering Isles features a bizarre landscape split between the two
sides – Mania and Dementia –filled with vast, twisting dungeons
mirroring the roots of the trees they are buried within. You’ll
encounter more than a dozen new creatures including hideous insects,
Flesh Atronachs, skeletal Shambles, and amphibious Grummites. Throughout
your adventure, you will discover all new items, ingredients, spells,
and much more. Or, you can have the talented craftsmen of Crucible and
Bliss forge new armor and weapons just for you.
