Step 1: Downloading Bethesda Launcher
If you already have the Bethesda Launcher installed, skip to step 3.
If you do not have the Bethesda Launcher installed, download it directly here: http://download.cdp.bethesda.net/BethesdaNetLauncher_Setup.exe
Open the installer has downloaded, run it and install the Bethesda Launcher onto your computer.
Once the Bethesda Launcher is installed, launch the software and you should be met with a Login window.
Step 2: Login or Create an Account
You only need to have one Bethesda account – if you already have one then simply login to your account using your username/password.
If you do not have a Bethesda account you will need to create one. Clicking “Create Account” in the Login window should redirect you to the registration section of the Bethesda website.
Simply create an account and activate your email address. Once the account is activated go back to the Bethesda Launcher and login to your account.
Once you have logged in you will see the main Bethesda window.
Step 3: Activate Your Game
In the main Bethesda Launcher window you should see a menu icon in the top left hand corner. Click the menu icon and then select “Redeem Code” in the drop-down list.
In the new window enter your game’s product code and then click “Redeem”.
Once the game is activated to your Bethesda account it is added to your library permanently and cannot be unbound from your account.
Step 4: Download Your Game
If you are not prompted to automatically install the game – or plan to install later – then to download your game you simply click “Games” in the top menu, and in the drop-down which says “All” select “My Library”.
Your game should be visible in this list. Click on your game and then on the overview page for your game you should see a large blue button that says “Install”.
Follow the instructions and wait for your game to install. Once it has finished you will be able to play.
