Grab a free copy of Morrowind to celebrate 25 years of The Elder Scrolls

  1. The company announced recently that it will be giving away free copies of The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, free in-game swag for The Elder Scrolls Legends, a free Nordic-themed jewelry set for Skyrim, and launching a brief free-to-play window for The Elder Scrolls Online.

    This anniversary event was technically over yesterday, but due to log in issues with Bethesda.net servers, Bethesda has decided to extend the giveaway all the way through to March 31.

    That gives you a whole extra week to snag a free copy of Morrowind, and the other goodies mentioned above.

    Doing the latter is fairly easy: just download the Bethesda.net client (or log in to the website) and redeem the offer code "TES25TH-MORROWIND" (without the quotes). It should be reiterated that this is a Bethesda.net client code, so you can't transfer it to Steam, the Epic Games Store, or any other digital distribution platforms.

    In addition to freebies, Bethesda is also offering hefty discounts on games in the Elder Scrolls Franchise. The Elder Scrolls Online can be grabbed for $9.99 (50% off its usual $20 price), Oblivion and Morrowind's respective Game of the Year editions are available for $7.49 each, and Skyrim's Special Edition is $23.99.

    Stupid launcher bugged for me. It opens and is just a blank dark box. Got the game added to my account and am too busy to play now anyway, but I hope I can find a fix soon.

    Elder Scrolls 4 was my favourite game... still play every so often... I must have over 1000 hours played on my main character, but have several maxed ones to mess around with :)

    I'm getting tired of launchers and proprietary DRMs.

    GOG is the only viable alternative to physical media, which have become extinct.

    "It should be reiterated that this is a Bethesda.net client code, so you can't transfer it to..."
    Bethesda recently announced that they will release Fallout 76 on Steam. But, because it's a different launcher, if you own the game on the Bethesda launcher you have to buy the game again to play it on Steam. What a crock.
    I agree with Lew Zealand and amghwk. If you're going to get the game and spend a lot of time playing (and possibly modding) it, just buy the GOG version and avoid the launchers.

    I can't help but feel that this "free" game is just bait to get you into the Bethesda store / launcher. If they really wanted to give the game away for free as part of a TES 25th Anniversary, wouldn't it be free on all stores? Morrowind GOTY edition is currently 50% off on Steam and GOG. If you intend to mod it, and there are a huge number of mods available now (have a read of STEP), the general advice seems to be to go with GOG. It's good to support a store with no launchers and no DRM.
