The Elder Scrolls Online is free-to-play from April 11-18

TES Online

The free trial not only gives you complete access to the base game, but you also get 500 Crowns to spend in-game on whatever goods you fancy.

If you find yourself enjoying your time in the fantasy MMO, you’ll also be able to pick it up cheaper, as Bethesda are hosting a sale to run alongside the trial.

All editions of the game will be discounted via Steam – as will the Imperial City, Orsinium, Thieves Guild, and Dark Brotherhood expansions. All your progress from the trial will also carry across once you have the game.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited’s free play week will begin at 10am ET on April 11 and run until 10am ET on April 18. No doubt Bethesda are hoping for a boost in player count in preparation for the next expansion, Morrowind, going live on June 6.
