If you’ve been thinking of giving The Elder Scrolls Online a try, but weren’t sure if it was worth the money, Tamriel is opening its doors to any and all players. The game will be free for one week starting April 11th at 10AM EDT.
The Elder Scrolls Online Free Play Week
Starting April 11th, anybody can try out The Elder Scrolls Online for free, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Steam. The only caveat to this is that Xbox One players will also need to have an Xbox Live Gold membership. Otherwise, potential players need only to download the game on the platform of their choice to enjoy the entire base game, excluding any DLC.
This event coincides with the celebration of the game’s three-year anniversary. That means players joining during the Free Play Week get to take advantage of the experience boost item provided to players during that celebration. The developers are handing out a few other bonuses as well. Players who start during Free Play Week get 500 free crowns to spend at the in-game crown store. Furthermore, any progress made during the free game time will carry over if the player purchases the full game at any time.
The Free Play Week also means sales in the crown store, so it’s a good time to pick up discounted items like Crown Packs, Crown Experience Scrolls, or the Starter Pack to give you an edge as you set out on this new adventure.

Free Play Week will end on April 18th, at 10AM EDT. So if you want to make the most out of the free game time, be ready to download the game tomorrow. Once you have it, you can head to the Crown Store and spend those free crowns on something that will get you going in no time.
