The Elder Scrolls Series Celebrates 25th Anniversary - Sales and Giveaways

On March 25, 1994, Bethesda Softworks released The Elder Scrolls: Arena, the first title in their long-running The Elder Scrolls series. Today, the series celebrates its 25th birthday, and as a result you can get your hands on a bunch of free The Elder Scrolls-related stuff and enjoy some fairly reasonable discounts. The main promotion is time-sensitive and allows you to get a free copy of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. You can read more about the promotions here, check out the upcoming events schedule here, and read all about The Elder Scrolls Online-related stuff here.
