Here it is folks. Grab your PCs, your laptops, or your grandma’s Dell Inspiron 3000 running off Windows 98. Skyrim is free as of today until 1am PDT on April 26th. If, by some force of will, you’re yet to pick up Bethesda’s fantastic 2011 Fantasy RPG, now is most certainly the time to do so. As of writing, you have just over 72 hours of free game time to jump into. That’s about enough time to make a decent dent in the tip of Skyrim’s iceberg.
Even if you’re unable to play over the next three days, the game is definitely still worth picking up, as until April 27th, the base game is a massive 75% off. That’s $3.75 for all you lovely American folk; not even three quid! If you fancy having even more Skyrim pumped directly into your bloodstream, then the Legendary Edition, complete with each of Skyrim’s three main story DLC expansions is now 66% off too, at just over a tenner.
If you’re a PC gamer that’s into RPGs and still doesn’t own Skyrim, this is easily one of the best opportunities for you to do so over the past three and a bit years. Hell, even if you’re not into RPGs, you might as well check the game out while it’s free. It’s an absolute corker of a game and has got to be up there with the best RPGs of the generation.
Still not enticed? There’s dragons in it. Haven’t read The Lusty Argonian Maid? Well, that’s enough of a reason to pick up Skyrim by itself. Just… Come on, do it for me, it’s really good. If you don’t like it, I kept the receipt, so you can take it back to the shop if you want. Damn it honey, I hate Christmas! Why are you always so hard to buy for?
