Earlier this year anyone who hadn’t yet given The Elder Scrolls Online a try yet had the opportunity to do so for free for an entire week. Now, in celebration of hitting the 10 million total players milestone, the game is being opened up for another weeklong free trial.
Starting today, players on PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac can dive into the MMO set within Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls world without paying a single coin. Unfortunately, unlike the above mentioned free trial, this one does not appear to be open to Xbox One players for whatever reason.
You can find details on the event below, along with a “10 Million Stories” trailer.
The PlayStation®4 and PC/Mac Free Play event will begin on November 30 and run until December 6.
If on PlayStation®4, you’ll need a PlayStation®Plus membership in order to download and play the game. If playing on PC/Mac, you can download and play for free via The Elder Scrolls Online official site or Steam.
All new ESO accounts are gifted 500 free crowns for use in the in-game Crown Store, allowing you to pick up some useful items such as potions, XP Scrolls, food, or an adorable pet! If you’ve played ESO during previous free-play events for your platform, you’ll find that any previous characters and progression will remain, allowing you to continue your adventures in Tamriel as if you never left. If you decide to buy ESO after the free play event, your characters will be waiting for you.
The ESO game client will be approximately 80GB in size, so ensure you have enough space on your machine’s hard drive for the download.
ENTER THE SWEEPSTAKES AND DUNGEON EVENT
New players can also take part in our In-Game Dungeon event, running from November 30 until December 6. To participate, complete a random dungeon via the Dungeon Finder (Normal or Veteran) to earn a Mysterious Reward Box that could contain a host of in-game rewards or collectible prize packs, including experience scrolls, potions, pets, mounts, and costumes. You can earn one Mysterious Reward Box per day per character.
If you’re lucky enough to hit the jackpot, you could even receive a pack of 20 homes or 20 mounts!
Finally, don’t forget to sign up for our #10MillionStories Sweepstakes promotion for a chance to win some awesome in-game and real-world prizes (eligibility restrictions apply). You’ll even earn one bonus sweepstakes entry for every day you complete a random dungeon!
The Elder Scrolls Online allows you to play how you want to play, and you can experience the world of Tamriel for yourself free this week on PlayStation®4 and PC/Mac. Are you planning on taking on the minions of Molag Bal during our Free Play event? Let us know on Twitter @TESOnline and Facebook! See you in Tamriel!
