It really is sad to the see the state that Bethesda is currently in. After the absolutely disastrous release of Fallout 76 last year it kind of feels like the company has been trying to put out a burning building with a teacup of water. Not even getting into the continuous issues with Fallout 76 after launch and the public’s seemingly indifference towards their own store front, perhaps they thought it would be a good idea to hand one of their most beloved titles out for free. To celebrate The Elder Scroll’s 25th Anniversary (which is wild in it’s own way), Bethesda announced they’d be handing out Morrowind for free for 24 hours on March 26.
Which is really cool! This is one of the best games they’ve ever made and the game that got me into RPG’s in the first place! Cool, there’s the key, just need to redeem it. Oh, wait what? Why didn’t it go through? Okay…let me try that again. Huh, still nothing. Is this the wrong code or…nope, definitely the right code. The previous sentence essentially covers my inner monologue (bar all the depressive and anxious thoughts) upon trying to obtain my free copy of Morrowind, and I’m sure plenty of other people had a similar experience. I opened the Bethesda Store for this?
Well, turns out the reason behind that is that the server for the store went down because, and this is pure speculation on my behalf,

Yeah I also got the mail and tried to redeem. I did give up though as I seriously think I won’t ever play it again. I have way more important games that are installed and on my backlog that I have not even played yet.

This is still one of my favourite Elder Scrolls games. My dad bought this game for us and I still have a copy of it somewhere.

Geez – was a bit of a mission going back and forth the website and stupid Bethesda launcher to get it. And the sad thing is i won’t probably play it. Would want to as i never played morrowind.

Yea, but it’s not free on the clients that matter. In which I’ll rather just buy it, it’s on sale now anyway.
