Bethesda’s classic Elder Scrolls games arrive on Steam—for free

The first two games in the series, Arena and Daggerfall, are free to play, as well as Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory.

If you're in the mood to walk down the halls of role-playing game history, open up your Steam client. Bethesda has added the original entries in the much-loved Elder Scrolls series to Steam, and two of them can be downloaded for free. The Elder Scrolls Arena from 1994 and its sequel Daggerfall from 1996, both landmarks in open-world RPG design, can be downloaded and played on modern PCs for the agreeable price of nothing at all.
