Save Up to 50% and Play Free during QuakeCon At Home


Play ESO free and pick up the game and Crown Packs on sale during QuakeCon At Home!


QuakeCon At Home is here, and that means you can save big on both the game and Crown Packs while trying out the game free during our limited-time sale and Free Play event.

Free Play Week

If you’d like to take your first steps into the world of Tamriel, you can play ESO free from now through August 19 at 10AM EDT for Xbox One and PC/Mac and August 20 at 10AM EDT for PlayStation®4.

To get started, visit our Free Play page and select your platform. This event gives you access to the ESO base game, which includes four of the game’s original classes, 24 unique zones (including Morrowind), a huge main storyline, and, if you’re a new player, 500 crowns to spend in the in-game Crown Store.

Even better, this event gives you the opportunity to begin your Dark Heart of Skyrim year-long story with the free Greymoor Prologue (part of the ESO base game).

Discover Skyrim’s dark heart with the Greymoor Prologue

If you’ve played ESO during a previous event, you can continue your adventures as normal. Happy adventuring!

Save on Greymoor

During QuakeCon, you can also save up to 35% on ESO’s latest Chapter, The Elder Scrolls Online Greymoor (including the Greymoor Standard Edition, Upgrade, and Collector’s Editions).

If you’re an existing player ready to explore the city of Solitude and surrounding holds, the Greymoor Upgrade gives you access to the new zone (Western Skyrim), the Antiquities system, and the Dark Heart of Skyrim questline. However, if you’re new to ESO, the Greymoor Standard Edition includes the Chapter detailed above and the full base game, Morrowind Chapter, Summerset Chapter, and Elsweyr Chapter. That’s hundreds of hours of quests, exploration, and stories—all 35% off!

Finally, as a new player, you can also pick up The Elder Scrolls Online Standard Edition at up to 50% off during the sale period, giving you access to the full base game and Morrowind Chapter—a great first step into the ever-expanding world of Tamriel.
