From Bethesda Softworks:

From November 30 to December 6, gamers will have seven full days to explore Tamriel for free, to build and grow their characters, run quests and dungeons with friends, and truly create their own story within the largest Elder Scrolls experience to date. The Free Play Week will include:

· A Massive Open World of Adventure: Access to the full The Elder Scrolls Online base game (not including ESO: Morrowind). Go wherever you want with whoever you want for hundreds of hours in the massive open world.

· 500 Free Crowns: All new accounts receive 500 Crowns to spend in the Crown Store on unique pets, helpful XP scrolls, potions and more.

· Progress Retention: Progress made from previous Free Play events are retained for those who choose to return. Any characters created, Crown Packs purchased, or Crown Store items bought, as well as any progress made during Free Play Week, will carry over for those who decide to purchase the full game.

PlayStation 4 players will need an active PlayStation Plus membership and can download the full game on the PlayStation Store. PC and Mac players can download the game and begin playing instantly via the official site or the Steam client.


From 10:00am EST November 30 to 10:00am EST December 6, all ESO players are eligible to participate in the special Dungeon event for a chance to win bonus in-game rewards, including consumables and collectible prize packs that include pets, mounts, and costumes. Players simply need to complete a random dungeon via the in-game Dungeon Finder (Normal or Veteran). Doing so will reward them with a Mysterious Reward Box. All characters on all platforms are eligible to participate, including Free Play Week players. There are no country/region restrictions.

Every day a player completes a random dungeon during the event period, they'll also earn a bonus entry into the #10MillionStories Sweepstakes. For more information, including details on prizes, contest rules, and eligibility, visit the #10MillionStories official site.


All ESO and ESO: Morrowind versions are on sale now on PS4, PC and Mac for up to 50% off via the official ElderScrollsOnline.com Store, on Steam, and in the PlayStation store.
