It's finally here - well, nearly; Take-Two has announced that PC and Xbox 360 title The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion will be out in Europe by the end of the month.

About time too, some might say - the RPG was originally rumoured to be an Xbox 360 launch title, and later we were told it would be out by Christmas... Only for the release date to slip into "early 2006".

Still, March is sort of early 2006, and Oblivion looks wicked, so we'll forgive them. As well as the standard version of the game, you'll be able to pick up a collector's edition, which will include a 112 page guide to the empire of Tamriel, a 'Making of' DVD documentary, and a replica Septim gold coin.

"Our most ambitious project ever is finally done," said executive producer Todd Howard. "We're excited to get the game into everyone's hands and let them experience it for themselves. We hope they enjoy it. I think it's our best game yet."

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is out on March 24th. For more details, check out our recent preview.
