The Elder Scrolls 25th Anniversary

Bethesda is celebrating 25 years of The Elder Scrolls today. On this day back in 1994, Bethesda released the first Elder Scrolls title called The Elder Scrolls: Arena for DOS. And while it's not that easy to play the original Elder Scrolls on modern machines, you should still be able to play The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

It's probably a good thing that FOR TODAY ONLY (March 25, 2019), you can get a free copy of Morrowind to keep forever and ever for the life of the Launcher. Here is how you can snag your free copy of Morrowind, plus some other freebies. Do note that at the exact time of this posting (around 4:30PM ET), the redemption isn't working. Bethesda is aware of the issue and are working to fix it.

1) Create a free account. If you already have an account, proceed to step two.
2) Log into your account and redeem the code TES25TH-MORROWIND to receive Morrowind on your account.
3) The game will be applied directly to your account. If you have not already, please download the launcher here.
In addition, if you want a larger and less compressed version of the wallpaper seen at the top of this news, you can find download links at the special Elder Scrolls 25th Anniversary site that Bethesda put up today. Bethesda also released a schedule of upcoming discounts, streams, and other freebies for games like The Elder Scrolls Online, The Elder Scrolls: Legends, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition.
