This award-winning adventure from the creative team behind Arena and Daggerfall combines the epic sweep of The Elder Scrolls universe with swashbuckling duels, a handcrafted 3D world, and a staggering story line to create a genre-breaking experience.

You are Cyrus, a Redguard mercenary who has returned to his homeland on an urgent mission. His sister has been kidnapped and a great conspiracy has consumed his homeland. Your quest leads from the Iron Governor of the Island Stros M'kai, to a restless band of pirates, and even into another dimension. Along the way you'll interact with dozens of characters and face creatures of every shape and size. You'll explore beaches, mountains, caverns, ruins, and more as the storyline unfolds.


"Redguard combines the best elements of adventure, action, exploration with hints of role-playing, and is scripted in a lusciously detailed 3D world full of pirates, swordsman, archers, magicians, dirty politicians and one devious assassin...I cannot recommend Redguard enough."
