The “Elder Scrolls” titles are coming to Steam, and they will be available on the PC platform for all needs, although these games are already decades old. Bethesda bids farewell to its online platform and chooses Steam to bring its features and games, giving the world more access to its titles available through the client.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – JUNE 09: Todd Howard, Director and Executive Producer of Bethesda Game Studios speaks during the Bethesda E3 Showcase at the Shrine Auditorium on June 09, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.
Bethesda has announced that it is “canceling” its Bethesda.net launcher, and the company is migrating everything it owns to the Steam platform. Starting in April, we’ll have trouble accessing the launcher dedicated to the company’s games and offers, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be inaccessible to users, especially those with wallets and rewards.
With that, the first and second titles “Elder Scrolls”, “Arena” and “Daggerfall”, are coming to Steam among other offerings from the company. The company said users still need a Bethesda.net account, but they will only need it for the games and its rewards and the career tracker login process. It wouldn’t necessarily be for the pitcher.

Elder Scrolls and other Bethesda offerings are coming too
The launcher will still be available until May, and users will be able to access their games here, but that’s not Bethesda’s recommended move. Soon it will shut down its platform entirely and the company said it will be harder to access in the future. The entire Bethesda.net Launcher experience is available on Steam, the company said.
Other games including “Fallout 76”, “DOOM Eternal”, “Wolfenstein: Youngblood”, “The Elder Scrolls: Legends”, “Rage 2”, and “DEATH LOOP” are also coming to Steam.
Bethesda and Elder Scrolls
Bethesda was acquired by Microsoft in November 2020 by buying ZeniMax Media. The games and titles under the companies are also part of the big family of software giants. The company is now focused on developing its games, and it will play a huge role in its release as Xbox before other consoles or platforms.
One of the most famous “Elder Scrolls” out there is “Skyrim,” and the renowned title in the gaming franchise has gotten a board game based on its history and experience. However, it’s not just Skyrim that makes “Elder Scrolls” such a famous and notable amusement of the developer’s lineup, especially with massive names like “Fallout” and “DOOM.”
Now that Bethesda is moving away from its self-made platform of delivering games and serving as a distributor customer, it’s now coming to Steam to deliver its titles and experiences. Not only that, they’re resurrecting two new games to port to modern PCs, giving them the chance to rediscover the “Elder Scrolls” franchise of the past.
