This was a good week for gamers to save some cash. Amazon and Best Buy both ran limited-time offers on PC and Switch accessories and while most of those daily deals have ended, there are a few lingering discounts to take advantage of. Plus, there were a few gaming freebies announced this week.

First, to celebrate the Elder Scrolls’s 25th anniversary, Bethesda Softworks gave away the third game in the series, Morrowind, to anyone with a Bethesda account. It was originally planned as a one-day-only offer, but technical difficulties compelled the company to extend the deal through Sunday, March 31. It’s redeemable at Bethesda’s digital storefront with the code TES25TH-MORROWIND.

Twitch Prime members got a surprise freebie this week as well. The Amazon-owned company announced this week that a year of Nintendo Switch Online is now available for free with a Twitch Prime subscription. It’s spaced out between a three-month and nine-month code, and the months will tack on to an existing Nintendo Switch Online membership. Anyone with an Amazon Prime membership can sign up for Twitch Prime by linking an account; A one-week Prime trial costs $1.99.
