Daggerfall Unity is an open source project to recreate Daggerfall in the Unity game engine.

On June 16, 2022, the "GOG Cut" of Daggerfall Unity was released on GOG. This version is a Windows release with several mods pre-installed. On December 14, 2023, Daggerfall Unity developer Interkarma recommended players avoid using this version due to its poor performance and obsolescense. Interkarma's guide describes how players may migrate away from the "GOG Cut" to the recommended updated version of Daggerfall Unity.

Version 1.0 of Daggerfall Unity was officially released on December 30, 2023.
