You’ll have to use the Bethesda Launcher to grab it, but a free Morrowind is better than no Morrowind at all.
Update: Bethesda has announced on Twitter that the giveaway will run “through the weekend”, giving everyone plenty of time to grab Morrowind and some handy mods to boot.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary since the launch of The Elder Scrolls: Arena and the franchise more generally, Bethesda is giving one of the best Elder Scrolls games away for nothing. If you want Morrowind, you’ll have to follow these steps:
- Head to Bethesda.net and create an account, or login to your existing one
- Redeem the TES25TH-MORROWIND code on your account
- Download the game from the Bethesda Launcher, if you haven’t downloaded it
If you’re already logged into your Bethesda.net account, you can redeem the code straight away through this link.
It’s available for today only, although once you’ve got Morrowind there’s plenty to explore. For one, the AI-enhanced mod Morrowind Enhanced Textures does a great job of upscaling a lot of the games textures.
And if you need a single reason that best illustrates why Morrowind is worth a playthrough, here’s Heather outlining one of the game’s best moments. (Spoilers, of course.)
