If you're looking for something to play this weekend – maybe you fancy a change, maybe you're killing time until Jedi: Fallen Order or Pokémon Sword and Shield comes, or maybe you just want to try a new game – we've got good news for you.
Bethesda and ZeniMax Online are offering a free trial period for Elder Scrolls Online across PC, PS4, and Xbox One – and it's available until November 13.
That's the perfect amount of time to see if you like the game, dip your toe in the water so to speak.
And, if you like what you see (it's basically Skyrim meets World of Warcraft) you can carry on playing with all your progress intact once the trail is over. Think of it as a free taster of the start of the game.
If you do pick the game up after your trail, the Online portion of the game is totally free for you – though you can buy into a premium subscription to get extra in-game bonuses each month.
Better yet, if you've played the game during one of these free events before, you'll be able to carry on from where you left off last time.
“If you’ve played ESO during a previous free play event, you can continue your adventures, and all new ESO accounts created will also receive 500 crowns to spend in the in-game Crown Store,” notes a press release.
PS4 players get a bit of a better deal than Xbox One users, though – Sony gamers don't need PS Plus, but Xbox users will need Xbox Live Gold.
“Note that Xbox Live Gold is required to play on Xbox One. With access to the ESO base game, you can begin your adventure by creating characters in four of the game’s classes (Nightblade, Templar, Dragonknight, and Sorcerer), exploring 23 unique zones, and taking on the game’s main questline, Mages and Fighters Guild storylines, and much more."
The press release continues:
“How you play is completely up to you—it’s your story! In addition to this, you’ll also get access to the Morrowind zone and story, allowing you to discover the home of the Dark Elves.
“Once the event begins, visit our Free Play page to select your platform and begin your adventure.
“Your progress will carry over if you decide to buy the full game. The Free Play event ends on November 13 at 10:00AM EST. A whole world of adventure awaits.”
If you're dipping into the game, enjoy – it's a very deep and rich experience.
