Elder Scrolls: Morrowind is Free to Download Until the Weekend After Suffering Server Troubles

You can still get Morrowind for free.

Bethesda recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls series by giving away a PC copy of The Elder Scroll 3: Morrowind through Bethesda.net. Unfortunately login issues prevented some players from capitalizing on the offer, so Bethesda is extending the deal through March 31.

The promotion was originally intended to be a one day affair, but after customers began having problems accessing their Bethesda.net accounts, it was extended. Bethesda says it's looking into the problem; but for those able to access their accounts, the free copy of Morrowind can be acquiring by redeeming the code "TES25TH-MORROWIND."

The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind was originally released in 2002, and was notable for being The Elder Scrolls' first real foray on to console. We called Morrowind the 11th best RPG of all time in our Top 25 RPG countdown, writing, "Morrowind sits at the inflection point between when Elder Scrolls was just a dense, nerdy-open world PC RPG and when it became an all-consuming force of marketing."

Since the first Elder Scrolls game in 1994, Bethesda has developed and released The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, both of which became immensely successful upon launch. Bethesda also released two spinoffs: the MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online and the CCG The Elder Scrolls: Legends.

Bethesda is also working on the next installment, The Elder Scrolls 6, though we don't expect to see that title until next-gen. Check out our Elder Scrolls 6 guide for everything we know so far.
