Bethesda tried their own game launcher, and it didn't work out. But in the final phase of shutting the service down, the publisher is moving some classic games, Like Elder Scrolls 1 and 2, onto Steam for the first time, some of which are even free.

Earlier today, five new titles were uploaded to the Bethesda-published game selection on Steam. Theyre as follows
  • The Elder Scrolls Arena
  • The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
  • The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard
  • An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire
  • Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
The majority of them are various Elder Scrolls games, while the fifth is an online multiplayer shooter spin-off of Wolfenstein. Elder Scrolls Arena (the first Elder Scrolls Game, Elder Scrolls 2, and the Wolfenstein game are all available for free, while Redguard and Battlespire, two spin-off games, cost about $6.

Lets do a short break down of each game.

Elder Scrolls Arena
Released in 1994, The Emperor has been locked away in an alternate dimension while a powerful mage impersonates him. The player, a lone adventurer, must travel across all of Tamriel to find the Staff of Chaos and rescue the Emperor.

Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
Released in 1996. Focused on the elven lands of High Rock, the player has been recruited by the Emperor to exorcise the restless spirit of the King of Daggerfall. But in their efforts a far greater threat presents itself.

The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard
Released in 1998. Breaking away from the RPG components of the series, no skills or character creation is present. Taking place in the sandy western land of Hammerfell, the player controls Cyrus, a redguard mercenary who is searching for his sister. She had disappeared mysteriously a few months ago, not long before the imperial occupation of Hammerfell.

An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire
Released in 1997, it was originally intended as DLC for Elder Scrolls 2, but was made into its own separate game. It takes place entirely within a single large dungeon within the Planes of Oblivion, a fiendish plane of reality full of Daedric monsters and artifacts.

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
The youngest of the bunch, it released in 2003 as a standalone expansion to Return to Castle Wolfenstein. It contained the multiplayer components that the mainline game intended to have. It features all of the content you might expect from the mainline game, including maps throughout Europe and North Africa, and various machinepunk-esque weapons and creations.

This is a somewhat surprising move by Bethesda, who doesn't exactly have a history of generosity. Though with the closure of the Bethesda Games Launcher on May 11, this may have been a move to show good faith to those affected by the account merger. Or maybe theyre just aware that folks aren't quick to pay for 28-year-old PC games. Either way, we arent complaining.

As we keep saying, Bethesda is shutting down their PC game launcher. Its final day will be May 11. People with accounts can transfer their games and current wallet values onto Steam for free.
