'The Elder Scrolls Online' (ALL) Free To Play This Weekend

by Rainier on Aug. 7, 2018 @ 5:44 p.m. PDT

The Elder Scrolls Online is the first Elder Scrolls game to allow gamers to explore the legendary Elder Scrolls world with others.

Using ZeniMax Online’s Megaserver technology, players will join one connected world with a built in social network that lets them stay up-to-date with everything their friends are doing.

Megaserver technology avoids the hassle of shard selection and makes The Elder Scrolls Online one of the most socially enabled games ever created.  Whether playing alone, or with hundreds of friends, players can develop their own style of play as they embark upon an epic quest across Tamriel.

QuakeCon 2018 is coming, and during the event, you can play The Elder Scrolls Online free, pick up ESO: Summerset and Crowns on sale, receive an exclusive pet and Twitch Drops, and more. Find out everything you need to know about ESO’s presence at the legendary convention right here.

We’re bringing ESO to QuakeCon in a big way this year, and whether you’re one of the lucky attendees in Texas or watching from home, there’s something for you to get excited about.

FREE PLAY EVENT

Starting Thursday, August 9 at 10:00AM EDT, you can play The Elder Scrolls Online free on all platforms (PC/Mac, PS4, and Xbox One). Once the event starts, visit our Free Play page and select your platform of choice. You’ll be able to enjoy the ESO base game AND the Vvardenfell zone completely free until Wednesday, August 15 at 10:00AM EDT.

Note that you will not need PlayStation Plus if playing on PS4 in order to download and participate in the event.

With the ESO base game, you’ll be able to explore Tamriel, reclaim your soul in an epic main story, and fight in a massive open-world PvP zone. For the first time, the Vvardenfell zone will also be available during the free play event, allowing you to visit the island home of the Dark Elves to help a god regain his lost power. If you already own the ESO base game, you’ll be able to enjoy access to the Vvardenfell zone during the event period, too!

ESO & CROWN PACKS ON SALE

Starting today and running for the duration of QuakeCon 2018, select Crown Packs, The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset (including Digital Collector’s Edition and Upgrades), The Elder Scrolls Online Collection, and The Elder Scrolls Online Standard Edition are on sale.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset is the latest Chapter in The Elder Scrolls Online saga, allowing new and veteran players alike (there are no level requirements) to explore the isle of Summerset and uncover a Daedric conspiracy.

The sale is now live on all platforms, including the ESO Store, Steam Store, PlayStation Store, and Xbox Store, and it will run until Monday, August 13. Check individual storefronts for complete sale details.

The Elder Scrolls Online Standard Edition will be available on sale until Monday, August 20.

WATCH THE KEYNOTE TO EARN AN EXCLUSIVE PET & DROPS

On Friday at 12:00PM EDT, watch QuakeCon 2018’s keynote address live on Twitch to receive an exclusive ESO pet and Twitch Drops. The show will begin at 12:00PM EDT on Friday, August 10 and can be viewed on Bethesda’s official Twitch, Mixer, and YouTube channels. Note that you can only earn these rewards by watching on Twitch:

  • Flame Atronach Wolf pet
  • 5 Ouroboros Crown Crates

To link your ESO account to Twitch, follow the instructions in this help article. Note that you are only able to link PC/Mac game accounts. The Ouroboros Crown Crates and Flame Atronach Wolf pet will be delivered to your ESO account by Friday, August 17.

If you are on console, don’t worry, you can acquire the pet AND Crown Crates by simply logging into the game and killing one enemy monster in the hour after the Keynote stream (between 1:00PM EDT and 2:00PM EDT). Console rewards will be delivered on August 28. 

During the keynote, you’ll hear about ESO’s future from ZeniMax Online Studio’s own Game Director Matt Firor and Community Manager Gina Bruno. Together, they will share all-new information on the upcoming Wolfhunter and Murkmire DLC game packs. If you’re looking for the inside scoop on ESO’s return to Black Marsh, tune in this Friday!
