The Elder Scrolls franchise has had a rich history on PC, but it's also found a good home on consoles, with more recent generations of players remembering Oblivion on last-gen consoles and the unparalleled success of Skyrim. There's a lot for the Elder Scrolls to celebrate in the console world, which is why the franchise's 25th anniversary is extending to PlayStation and Xbox.

The Elder Scrolls Online's free play period is extending to both the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game, as are the sales on the full game. If you're looking for more of a single-player experience, there's that old chestnut Skyrim. The Special Edition has a nice discount on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Meanwhile, Trials Rising is getting a nice discount on all major consoles. But keep an eye on the Nintendo Switch version, which adds on to the 20 percent reduction by also offering heavy discounts on a few other Ubisoft games with purchase.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
