The Elder Scrolls Online is Free Until Sunday

Zenimax and Bethesda’s MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online, is free to play for all until this Sunday, November 20. Playstation 4 and PC players can begin downloading and playing now. However Xbox One users are going to have to wait a little longer for a free weekend.

The free “weekend” lasts until midnight November 20 and acts as a promotion for the recently released update “One Tamriel”. Previously players were locked into areas depending on their level and faction but the new update allows players to explore anywhere, anytime with anybody.

Of course, if you decide to buy and continue playing after the free time, all your data and saves will carry over. Zenimax are also offering 500 free crowns – Elder Scrolls Online’s in-game currency – to do with as you will. The most important thing to note would be that if you are wanting to join in on the fun, The Elder Scrolls Online will require a lot of downloading – the PS4 version currently rests at 73GB.


Ruaraidh - pronounced Roo-Ree - is a Scottish gamer with the name and games to prove it. He enjoys mostly everything, unless it involves exercise, and much prefers to run around inside a good, open-world RPG, being chased across the lands by a horde of monsters after his sweet loot. When he has made his escape, he will often return to the real world to continue playing anything with a good story - indie or otherwise.
