Bethesda Arrive On GOG With TES, Fallout, And Doom

Good Old Games, they used to call themselves, before they went a bit ‘Book of Revelation’ and became GOG. This is all very handy for my contrived wordplay, as GOG today added some good old games and revived something a bit apocalyptic.

Bethesda Softworks ventured onto GOG today for your DRM-free playing pleasure, bringing Doom, Quake, and vintage Elder Scrolls games including the download-o-premieres of spin-offs Battlespire and Redguard. The original Fallout games have returned to GOG too, after waiting out the rights apocalypse in a vault.

The initial offering of games published by Bethesda is: The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind GotY for £14.99 (oof!); action-adventure spin-off The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard for £3.89; dungeon-crawling side-game An Elder Scrolls Legend: Battlespire for £3.89; id Software’s Quake with the two Mission Packs for £6.49; The Ultimate Doom for £3.89; Doom II plus Final Doom and the Master Levels for £6.49.

Lastly, Black Isle Studios’ Fallout is back on GOG for £6.49 while Fallout 2 is also £6.49 – and the spin-off Fallout Tactics is £6.49 too.

The Fallout games vanished from GOG at the end of 2013 as the rights passed to Bethesda from original publisher Interplay – but not before they were given away free. Nice to have them back.

Bundles make the Elder Scrolls games, Fallouts, and id shooters cheaper in bulk too.

While TES: Arena and TES: Daggerfall have both been free for a while – you can download them from Bethesda – they’ll be slammed on your GOG virtual shelf for convenience’s sake if you buy any Bethesda game.
