- First of It's Kind: Follow the story of the game that started it all. Arena allows players into a level of depth never thought possible at the time of it's release.
- Fight For Survival: In a world where all of society is as barbaric as their long dead ancestors, Tamriel is introduced as wild, untamed and extremely violent world in which only the meanest of mean survive.
- The Game That Started A Trend: The trademark Bethesda touch starts with the expansive world that allows for players to "go anywhere and do anything".
