Bethesda is making 2 Elder Scrolls games absolutely free

Coinciding with QuakeCon 2022, Bethesda has announced that it will be giving away two different entries to the Elder Scrolls franchise for free. In an era where many fans simply have to keep waiting The Elder Scrolls 6 to finally launch, some have started going back to previous versions of the series to help make the wait a little easier. Fortunately, if you’re someone who wants to do that too, you can now pick up the first two games in the franchise without having to spend a dime.

As of today, both The Elder Scrolls: Arena i The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall they can be obtained for free on the computer. Specifically, these titles are given away through the Microsoft Store. This is the first time that the first two entries in The Elder Scrolls series have come to the Microsoft Store. Previously, the platform offered only Skyrim, The oblivion, Morrowindi The Elder Scrolls Online.

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time this year that Bethesda has offered both arena i Daggerfall for free. Back in the spring, the publisher made this pair of Elder Scrolls titles free for those on Valve’s Steam platform. This was the first time these games came to Steam, and as such, Bethesda was looking to celebrate their arrival by simply giving them away for nothing, which is an offer that has continued in perpetuity. Now, the same goes for the Microsoft Store, which makes sense given that Bethesda is owned by the tech giant.

It is worth saying that at the time of publication, both arena i Daggerfall they haven’t appeared in the Microsoft Store yet. In all likelihood, they won’t populate until QuakeCon 2022 formally begins this afternoon. However, when they finally do appear, you should be able to easily add them to your own digital games library on your PC with ease.

What do you think of Bethesda making this pair of free-to-play Elder Scrolls games for PC? Are you looking for these titles for yourself? Let me know in the comments or reach out to me on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
