Freeware releaseThe game was offered as freeware on July 9, 2009 in celebration of fifteen years of Elder Scrolls.
GraphicsDaggerfall's creature art is an interesting mix of hand-drawn work and rendered material. All of the creatures, in fact, originally had 6 frames to every animation, but this had to be chopped down considerably to compress the size of the game which was already monstrously large for the time it was released.
The only remaining trace of these original detailed animations is in a "bestiary" video describing several of the creatures of Daggerfall.
