Back in the day, choose your own adventure type of games were pretty popular. Basically these games came in the form of books, where a scenario would be laid out in front of you, and then you make a decision and flip to the relevant page. If you’re looking to relive some of that nostalgia, you might want to check out what Bethesda has in store for gamers.
The company has recently launched a choose your own adventure game on Twitter based on the Elder Scrolls. They have laid out various scenarios and gamers can click on the Twitter links to proceed, where at the end, players can take a screenshot of their completion and submit it to one of 20 digital Elder Scrolls Online packs.
Before you stands Markarth, the City of Stone, with its bustling streets dotted by scenic waterfalls. You're looking for adventure, which is never far away in the Reach.

It should be noted that while you can play this anywhere in the world, the prizes are only for those living in Australia and New Zealand. Also, this seems to be part of Bethesda’s promotion for the Markarth DLC Game Pack for Elder Scrolls Online, so it’s not as if this will be a new Elder Scrolls game you can play in place of the actual one.
It’s actually quite a clever and appropriate marketing strategy, although gamers who want to check out the Elder Scrolls Online will also be pleased to learn that the game is currently free to play until the 9th of December, so you can take it for a spin if you’re curious.
