Try ESO Free & Save Up to 60% on Standard Edition Now!


You can begin your adventures in Tamriel during our Free Play event and continue your journey after with savings of up to 60% on The Elder Scrolls Online: Standard Edition. 

Play for Free

The Elder Scrolls Online Free Play event is now live and will continue until December 9 at 10AM EST for PC/Mac, Stadia* Xbox, and PlayStation. During this period, you can download and play the ESO base game for free, with no strings attached and no credit card information needed.

The ESO base game includes four powerful classes, 24 huge zones (including the Morrowind Chapter’s Vvardenfell), and a massive storyline that sees you confront the minions of Molag Bal and reclaim your soul from Oblivion.

If you’re a new player, you’ll also receive 500 crowns to spend in the in-game Crown Store, and if you’ve participated in previous free play events, you can continue your adventures during this new event period. Finally, this free play event is also a great opportunity to begin your Dark Heart of Skyrim adventure (this year’s major storyline), as access to the base game also gives you access to the Greymoor Prologue questline.

To get started, visit our Free Play page and select your platform. Easy!
