This May 11th Bethesda will be shutting down their Launcher and mostly switching to Steam as their PC platform of choice. So if you have any games on your account, make sure to transfer them (and their save files) as soon as you can.

As a part of this process, Bethesda has also just re-released five of their classic games onto Steam. Best of all, three of them are entirely free to grab! So if you ever wanted to experience a piece of The Elder Scrolls history, you'll be happy to hear that The Elder Scrolls Arena and The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall are among the chosen freebies, along with Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

Before you dive in, however, it's worth mentioning that both of The Elder Scrolls games are incredibly dated by today's standards. So should you decide to play them, I would highly recommend installing some of the excellent community mods as they will make your first experience with the games a whole lot smoother.

That aside, if you want to go really obscure and start digging through The Elder Scrolls' closet looking for embarrassing old photos, you might be interested to hear that the often forgotten An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire and The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard have also been released onto Steam. Each of the games will set you back 6€ and a great deal of sanity due to the difficulty curve, but it might still be worth it if you want to see the entirety of The Elder Scrolls' journey.

Have fun with the games, and I'll leave you with the Daggerfall trailer in all of its 240p glory:
