2K Games and Bethesda have teamed up to offer BioShock and Oblivion in a bundle to be released on July 7 for PC and Xbox 360.

The PC version will run you $29.99 while the 360 version costs $39.99 – which is only a couple dollars more than buying both games used.

If there is anyone out there who has yet to play both games, this isn’t a bad deal.

Hit the jump for the press release.

[UPDATE] A representative from Bethesda just confirmed to VG247 that this is not the Game of the Year version of Oblivion that contains Knights of the Nine or Shivering Isles.

2K Games and Bethesda announce BioShock(r) & The Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion(r) Bundle

June 17, 2009 – 2K Games and Bethesda Softworks are teaming up to deliver a value-packed experience that combines 2006 Game of the Year Winner The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion with 2007 Game of the Year Winner BioShock into one complete package.

Beginning July 7, the BioShock & The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Bundle will be available in retailers across North America for an SRP of $39.99 on the Xbox 360(r) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and $29.99 for Windows PCs.

With a combined bounty of more than 80 Game of the Year awards from the industry’s top publications, the BioShock & The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Bundle provide two critically acclaimed experiences that have set new benchmarks for their genres.

Taking the world by storm in 2006, Oblivion set a new benchmark for role-playing experiences for current-generation gaming. Lush visuals, expansive worlds and limitless character customization combine with unprecedented levels of player freedom and NPC interaction to form one of the most successful and critically
acclaimed games ever created.

BioShock is the genetically enhanced shooter that weaved intricate storytelling with an intense and exciting journey though a decaying underwater Art Deco utopia gone mad. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by mutated citizens, you are armed with a complete arsenal from simple revolvers to chemical throwers, but are also forced to genetically modify your DNA to create an even more deadly weapon:
you.

The BioShock & The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Bundle is rated M by the ESRB. For more information on BioShock please visit www.bioshockgame.com. For more information on Oblivion please visit www.elderscrolls.com.

    I hope Bioshock gets released on Steam anytime this year.

    Too bad it’s not the GotY-version av Oblivion (which includes The Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine). Fantastic deal none the less.

    I wonder if it is the GOTY edition. It doesn’t really clearly state unless I missed it, no?

    I shot an email off to Bethesda asking what edition it was right after I posted the story. Hopefully someone will get back with us soon.
