Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is free with Amazon Prime this month

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion screenshots spliced together: one shows a man in a dark room, the other shows a fantasy environment.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion is among the free games for Amazon Prime subscribers this month. Though often overshadowed by its sequel, Skyrim, there are some fans who would say that it’s the better of the two and it certainly offers a memorable RPG experience.

When it released back in 2006, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion was the big fantasy game. If you’ve always been a fan of Skyrim but never ventured into any of the other Elder Scrolls game, this would be an excellent time to do so. While it’s more primitive than its successor in some ways, it still provides a beautiful and immersive open world to explore in which you can easily spend hundreds of hours.

This is the Game of the Year Deluxe Edition, too, which means that it comes bundled with both of the expansions, Knights of the Nine, and Shivering Isles. With Amazon Prime, you’ll receive a code to download the game for free on GOG.com, but only if you have an active subscription and claim it before May 2.

The other free Prime Game this month is Plants vs. Zombies 2: Battle for Neighborville. Following Garden Warfare and Garden Warfare 2, it builds upon many of the ideas and concepts introduced in the earlier games. It’s a polished and enjoyable game that adds new game modes and characters to the old formula, like the acorn who grows up into a massive oak tree, and the bizarre zombie wizard who fights using spells and potions.
