GOG.com gets classic Bethesda games, including The Elder Scrolls
Digital game distributor, GOG.com has announced that they are now carrying Bethesda titles, all completely DRM free. Among the series' arriving to GOG are classic games from the DOOM, Quake, Fallout and The Elder Scrolls series.
Arguably the most significant of these releases are entries from The Elder Scrolls series, which features five games, The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard, Battlespire, Morrowind, Arena and Daggerfall. It may not be Oblivion or Skyrim, but this collection is significant none the less.
GOG is famous for bringing old games into the hands of modern gamers, and that's just what this collection is. These games are the foundation for what made Skyrim and the upcoming Fallout 4 the games they are today. While the visuals are undoubtedly worse, you can still appreciate the ambition of the titles considering when they were released.
Arena was the first game in The Elder Scrolls series and was released all the way back in 1994 for MS-DOS. Just for reference, here is the order of the games in The Elder Scrolls series.
- The Elder Scrolls: Arena
- The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Currently, GOG is running a sale with three separate bundles revolving around each series.
- Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics for $9.99
- Quake: The Offering, The Ultimate DOOM, DOOM II, and Final DOOM for $17.31
- The Elder Scrolls series, Redguard, Battlespire and Morrowind for $17.31
Of course, you can buy any of these games individually with the exception of Arena and Daggerfall, which come for free with any Bethesda purchase. The bundle deals are timed and will expire on Wednesday, September 2nd, so you still have some time to save some green on these classic games.
