ZeniMax Media announced that it is to offer Elder Scrolls Online fans a free trial of the ESO Plus membership program. The ESO Plus promo event will commence on July 5th at 10 am ET. It will wrap up at 11:59 pm on July 9th.
Within the above-mentioned time frame, non-Plus players will be granted a full access to the game benefits. Those who have already purchased the Plus membership will be eligible for receiving free Dwarven Crown Crates for each day that they connect to the game. The free Crates will be credited to players on July 17th. To take advantage of the promo, players need to log into their accounts and visit the Crown Store. Then, they have to push the “ESO Plus Free Trial” button.
Back in 2015, the ESO Plus program replaced the Elder Scrolls Online subscriptions. Depending on the type of subscription players choose, they have to pay a certain membership fee.
The ESO Plus is an optional subscription that rewards players with a plethora of benefits such as additional dungeons, full access to all DLC game packs (Shadows of Hist, Imperial City, Dark Brotherhood, Orsinium, Thieves Guild), 1500 Crowns per month to spend on the in-game store, unlimited storage to crafting materials, double furnishings, the ability to dye costumes and more. It is essential to note that players who take advantage of the Free Trial promo will not receive the 1500 Crown award.
Although players have gladly embraced the opportunity of playing for free, some of them asked why Bethesda is being so generous?
What makes The Elder Scrolls Online different from most same-genre games is the fact that it is free to play. After purchasing the base version, players do not owe a monthly subscription fee. The ESO Plus Free Trial is seen as a chance for players to decide whether the ESO Plus membership is worth their while.
