There's an inherent sense of guilt to impulse-buying, but Bethesda's latest sale wholly remedies that factor by sending your hard-earned money to a very good cause. Ongoing and widespread fires have ravaged large parts of Australia since June 2019, spreading through tens of millions of acres of wildlife and threatening irreparable damage to the continent's ecosystems. Up to 32 people have died as a result of the bushfires and up to 1 billion animals.

The sale runs for a full 24 hours from January 30 at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm GMT. For a heavily discounted price, you can buy into Elder Scrolls Online and prepare for the Greymoor (opens in new tab) expansion, which will take you back to "the dark heart of Skyrim" this summer. Alternatively, you can snag Doom (opens in new tab) 2016 for the Switch, Xbox One, PS4, or PC.

For charitable gamers in need of some new duds, Bethesda is also giving 100% of profits from the Responders Australia Charity Tee (opens in new tab) to the Australian Salvation Army (opens in new tab). The t-shirt features the "Vault Boy Responder" holding an adorable koala on the front chest and the Responder symbol on the back, and it ships in March.

In other Bethesda-related news, there's a good chance Elder Scrolls 6 is entering full production (opens in new tab) after fans noticed a number of intriguing job vacancies at Bethesda.
