Simple question: anyone know when this is supposed to be out? I've just had a look around and found about eight different release dates. Rumours abound that it'll hit the UK on 20th July... but I'd heard it had been pushed back to August.

Anyone know for sure?

edit: thought we had a thread on this, but the search engine didn't turn it up.

That EG news story reckons it will be 10th August.

I reckon it will be out once all the bugs have been fixed. The PC version that came out in Germany didn't sound like it was up to scratch, so I'd rather wait and get a good game.

Looking forward to the coop mode, I just hope the game isn't too beardy. Oblivion level of RPGness is enough for me ;-)

I'm hoping it's basically Oblivion with online multiplayer parties.

The outrage! My original thread has actually disappeared from the forum O_o. WTF?

Anyway, I can guarantee it'll be out in Hungary on July 20th, 2009.

Give us your impressions, if you don't mind, Whizzo.

I'm really looking forward to this, buggy and flawed though it looks.

He didn't like the lizards ;-)

Seriously though I would be interested to here what makes the game so poor.

Official site says the 360 version will be out on 29th August. It will include all the patches from the pc version.

Details of the latest patch (1.5) are here. If that is what they to do in one patch you dread to think of the state of the original pc release.

No more respawning beavers and foxes? Lousy patches.

Anyway, I think I can say without any hyperbole, bias or any element of speculation that the 360 version will be *the* definitive version, leaving those mouse-wielding freaks weeping and gnashing their teeth.

And JimJam, it *will* Oblivion online and then some.

If it gets favourable reviews, I will definitely be getting it, and so will a few mates who lameted the lack of 'partying up' in Oblivion.

Great, count me in if there's room.

It's really going to have to be an abomination for me not to get it. As such a fan of the genre, 6/10 reviews will be enough for me (the pc version's got about 6.5 average on Metacritic at the moment, although only based on 3 reviews so far).

Have it pre-ordered with shopto... hoping they knock a couple of quid off the price though. They're not the cheapest, at the moment.

Cool, JimJam, though chances are it'll be a while before it gets here.

Right, back to Bioshock. :-)

Lousy combat, terrible voice acting, poor character models, ok graphics, poor AI, packs of animals like wolves that you can just run past and leave them behind, no polish.

It reminds me of Gothic 2 (which is six years old) but isn't as good.

Oh and games that have anti-aliasing settings in the video options better fucking work when you select them as well. Forcing it in the drivers didn't make any difference either.

As for how the 360 version will turn out I don't know, I would wait for a demo. It maybe better than the PC version (which has been patched multiple times) or it may not. Either way spending money on this sight unseen is NOT RECOMMENDED!

Southpeak now say the UK release date is 7th September.

Hopefully there will be a 360 demo, though this looks like guaranteed bargain bin material ;-)

Well, as Yoda said, "There is another...".

If this turns out badly I will pin my hopes for multiplayer Oblivion on Dark Messiah Of Might & Magic. 12 player parties apparently, and looking good.

I braved the GameFAQ forums to see what our American cousins think of 360 version.

Quite a few people seem to like the game; though they all say you need to work past the first hour to start seeing the best of the game.

Only comments I could find about the online stuff is that, when it doesn't lock up, it is very laggy :-(
