“A lonely prisoner must journey to Tamriel’s most famous and dangerous sites to collect the shattered Staff of Chaos, save the Emperor, and free the Empire.” Doesn’t that sound like a better premise for a fantasy game than waking up as a prisoner and… then fight a bunch of dragons? No? Because of me. But it’s still a damn good game – and the premise of The Elder Scrolls Arena; the game that started it all.
And it’s coming to Steam soon. Announced in a blog post, Bethesda has revealed both The Elder Scrolls Arena and dagger case get to steam for the first time very soon.
“With the retirement of the Bethesda.net Launcher, we will be making several of our titles previously unavailable on Steam,” says the publisher.
If you’ve already played the original Elder Scrolls titles via the Doomed Laucher, don’t fret – you can move your saves from those versions of the game to the Steam versions.
“You have ample time to plan and begin migrating your Bethesda.net library to your Steam account,” notes the publisher. Just make sure you do this sooner rather than later as the launcher will close for good in May.
“As of this writing, we expect almost all saved progress to be transferable automatically or manually, with the exception of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which is currently not transferable,” notes the studio.
If you’ve never played Daggerfall, we have an in-depth article explaining why it was definitely worth revisiting in 2022, thanks to some brilliant amateur developers,” wrote our own Jim Trinca in February. “And if they Rumors are true, the next game will share much of the setting, so if nothing else, you can explore the new digs.”
As if you wanted an excuse to play the game, you can then just tell yourself it’s all research for the inevitable – but distant – Elder Scrolls 6.
