 To celebrate QuakeCon 2021, The Elder Scrolls Online will be available to play for free on PC/Mac, Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia until August 30th, allowing gamers to try out the MMO without restrictions. This will give gamers temporary access to the game's Morrowind zone and the entirety of the base game. 

With this free period, gamers will also be given access to the game's Blackwood prologue questline, starting the game's "Gates of Oblivion" questline. Until August 31st, The Elder Scrolls Online base game will be available for £5.99 (60% discount) on Steam, and the game's Blackwood pack (which includes all of The Elder Scrolls Online's DLC and the base game) will be available for £32.49 (35% Discount).

All new ESO accounts that are registered during this event will receive 500 crowns to help them get started. Crowns are The Elder Scroll's Online's premium currency.
