Xbox Live Gold members can play The Elder Scrolls Online and experience Tamriel like never before during our Free Play Event!

Get ready to experience an ever-expanding story in a persistent Elder Scrolls world. The Elder Scrolls Online Free Play Event will begin on Thursday, December 6 at 12:01 a.m. PDT and will run until Wednesday, December 12 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. During this period, you can join millions of other adventurers in exploring Tamriel free on Xbox One, with no strings attached.

During the Free Play Event, you'll also have access to the Morrowind DLC and visit the isle of Vvardenfell, the mysterious home of Tamriel's Dark Elves, to help the demi-god Vivec restore his lost powers. Additionally, in The Elder Scrolls Online base game, you can explore a massive world filled with beauty and adventure as you fight to reclaim your stolen soul from the Daedric Prince Molag Bal. Finally, players will have access to Cyrodiil, a massive open-world PvP zone, and the Battlegrounds, a fast-paced 4v4v4 PvP arena.

During this event, all new ESO accounts receive 500 free crowns for use in the in-game Crown Store, allowing you to pick up some useful items that include XP Scrolls, consumables, or even collectibles. Any characters and progression earned from previous trial events will remain, and if you decide to buy ESO after the event, you'll be able to continue your adventures without interruption. And when you buy this week, you'll save up to 50%!

If you have an Xbox One X and a compatible screen, you can enjoy Tamriel in 4K and HDR, as the game is Xbox One X Enhanced. We hope you'll join us this week!
