I didnt see this posted on here, so im copying straight from my site Thumbstick Gamer.

This is for you PC gamers out there. Bethesda is giving away the Elder Scrolls 1 and 2 for free.

All you have to do is go to the following links:

Arena (Elder Scrolls 1): http://www.elderscrolls.com/arena/

Daggerfall (Elder Scrolls 2): http://www.elderscrolls.com/daggerfall/

Download and install.

The games look dated from the pictures I'm looking at, but for anyone looking to play them or interested on how the story began, here you go.

Enjoy all.

I'm pretty sure Bethesda released these for free years ago.

There's some info about getting Daggerfall to work on Android from the Gog forums but I haven't tried it yet.

ancient, but I guess it's good for those that don't know? it's a pain to get them to run on modern machines though, not worth it for me. it be cool if they remade the old games with their newest engine ( at least the basic plot and quest possiblities) but I heard daggerfall randomly generated everything...

Thanks.

I lol'd at arena being 8MB while the other 149MB. It downloaded in just 2 seconds.

Though to be fair, who's going to scroll through the 331,826 threads posted in the 9-3/4 years since that was originally posted?

Never played any of the pre-Xbox Elder Scrolls, it'll be cool to start from the beginning. Thanks OP!

just for fun, early Command and Conquer titles and the original GTAs are free from their publishers as well.

Daggerfall was an incredible game, especially in scope for its day. It was insanely huge, the entire continent of Tamirel. That was my first step into Elder Scrolls. I never played enough of Arena, though.

If you can put up with some 'archaic' graphics and methodology, then they're must plays. If you find Morrowind or even Oblivion 'grossly outdated', obviously avoid :lol:

Thanks OP I would have not known of this without your post.

I think a few of you guys are being a little picky calling out a re-post considering the original post was in 2009.As if anyone would be scrolling through posts from 4 years ago.

Spiffy! I hope to see Redguard someday. It was a freebie with my voodoo card back in the day, but I never got to play it.

Thanks for the post, mate.
