It's unlikely that you're going to get a big boost to your Gamerscore from Elder Scrolls Online. Some of the easiest achievements that require little time and effort to complete are only worth 5G. But if you've been looking to get into a new MMO and have always been curious about ESO, why not check it out this week? The game is consistently receiving new DLCs (all with new achievements) and regular gameplay and performance improvement updates. The sixteenth DLC, Dragonhold, was released November 5 and added 24 new adventures to the game along with two Dragonhold achievements. Players will journey into Southern Elsweyr to restore the ancient Dragonguard order and help Sai Sahan put an end to the Dragon threat.

The Free Play Days event for The Elder Scrolls Online will go live today at 3PM GMT/10AM ET/7AM PT and runs until Wednesday November 13, 3PM GMT/10AM ET/7AM PT. If you have already played ESO during a previous free play event, you can continue with your adventure. All new ESO accounts created will also be given 500 Crowns to spend in the in-game store. All progress will carry over if you decide to buy the game.
