Play Elder Scrolls Online for Free This Weekend

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
If you've always wanted to try The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited but haven't yet had a chance, this weekend presents the perfect opportunity to do so. Xbox LIVE Gold members will be able to download the game from 9AM PT on December 10th and play for FREE until 11:59PM PT on December 13th. Once the weekend starts, players will be able to download the game for free either from the Gold Members area on the Xbox One dashboard, or by downloading directly from the store.

If this isn't incentive enough to give the game a go, perhaps the chance to win $1 million might change your mind? Alternatively, 1000 runners up will receive 3000 crowns to spend in-game. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning these prizes is to register here and then play the game between December 3rd and January 10th, 2016. You can check out the terms and conditions right here.


Players who choose to purchase the game once the weekend is over will be able to keep their character and all of their progression, Gamerscore and achievements that they earn during this weekend. In fact, Microsoft has even promised that the game will be on sale "during the week". As it isn't on sale right now, we assume that this means the week after the free weekend period.

Will you be exploring Tamriel this weekend?
