Mehrunes' Razor heads for Oblivion

"One of the most challenging dungeons in all of Cyrodiil" - new Oblivion download content revealed!

We've already conquered the Thieves Den and Wizards Tower, but today Bethesda has showcased its latest Oblivion download content, which it promises to be "One of the most challenging dungeons in all of Cyrodiil."

Mehrunes' Razor is the name of Oblivion's new skill-tester, and it looks set to be one of the meatiest Oblivion downloads yet with a fully featured quest, seven new magic items, 12 new books plus a handful of hidden goodies as well.


In the story department, Bethesda tell us that "The lost Ayleid City Varsa Baalim has been unearthed by a rogue Telvanni arch-mage, in pursuit of a fearsome Daedric Artifact, Mehrunes' Razor, which he believes will give him the power he needs to topple the Imperial reign." Or at the least, a blindingly close shave that will leave your skin feeling smooth as a baby's... (that's enough razor gags - Ed)

Bethesda continue: "What horrors lie in wait beneath the Valus mountains; and can you overcome them to claim Mehrunes Razor as your own?"

There's no ETA on the dungeon yet, but when Mehrunes' Razor eventually arrives on the internet it will set you back 2.99 USD (1.6 GBP) for the PC download or the desired amount of Microsoft points for the 360. For now, enjoy a close shave with our lovely selection of new screenshots.
