About 10 years ago there were plans to bring The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to the PSP, with work on the game being handled by Climax Group London. The game was to be called The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion and would feature “new characters, inventory system, combat system, levels and more features exclusive for this PSP version.”
However, due to the PSP’s limited hardware and the game’s massive scope, a lot of problems ensued that eventually resulted in the game being cancelled. Now, 10 years later, we’re getting more information and footage of the game running on the PSP, and it’s pretty cool to see such a massive game running on such a small console.
The game would be taking a different approach to what the main Oblivion game offered, with Unseen64 providing the following information:
“The designers had planned more than 180 quests, which took on a variety of things from the main quest line to a huge variety of side quests, including quests for the various guilds. The plotline (and side quests) on PSP referenced the Oblivion game and plot line at several points to tie the two products together, and even explained / foretold some of the events of Oblivion – for example, the Dark Brotherhood quest line heavily featured Lucien Lachance (before his demise in the main Oblivion game).”
A new video detailing the entire history of the game’s development was also recently uploaded to YouTube, which you can check out below.
