Bethesda just added a bunch of classic PC games to Steam including Wolfenstein: Enemy Within and four classic Elder Scrolls titles.
Earlier this year, Bethesda announced that it was closing its own PC game launcher. In fact, you can start migrating your games from the Bethesda Launcher to Steam starting today. Users can no longer access or play games with Bethesda Launcher starting on May 11.
As part of the migration, Steam added a number of games that were not previously available on Steam. These include classic Elder Scrolls and Wolfenstein PC games. At the moment, three of the five games are listed as free on Steam. So you might as well add them to your library.
Here are the games that got added to Steam today:
- The Elder Scrolls Arena
- The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
- The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard
- An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire
- Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
In terms of the free games, you can grab Elder Scrolls Arena and its sequel Daggerfall for free. The online multiplayer shooter Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is also free. However, you may want to claim them as soon as you can since there is no guarantee that they will remain free.
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory was originally released on PC in 2003. The game was intended as a Return to Castle Wolfenstein expansion. Instead, it was released as standalone freeware. The Elder Scrolls Arena is the oldest game in the quintet. It was released for MS-DOS in 1994. Its follow-up, Daggerfall, came out in 1996.
Meanwhile, The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard and An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire are listed for $5.99 each on Steam. They’re also available on GOG if you prefer owning a DRM-free copy.
