ESO Boasts 10M Players, Offers Free Week

A new 10 Million Stories trailer announces over 10 million players have now explored Tamriel in The Elder Scrolls Online, Bethesda's MMORPG. Also, Bethesda announces a free weekend for The Elder Scrolls Online will begin tomorrow and continue until December 6th, making for a week-long weekend (an idea I once unsuccessfully tried to patent). This coincides with bonus rewards being handed out in a #10MillionStories Dungeon Event that offers the chance to get your hands on some of the game's rarest goods in celebration of the game's 10 million users. Finally, there's also a 10 Million Stories sweepstakes with more prizes, including a trip to PAX East 2018. Here are the details on all the promotions:
The PlayStation®4 and PC/Mac Free Play event will begin on November 30 and run until December 6.

If on PlayStation®4, you'll need a PlayStation®Plus membership in order to download and play the game. If playing on PC/Mac, you can download and play for free via The Elder Scrolls Online official site or Steam.

All new ESO accounts are gifted 500 free crowns for use in the in-game Crown Store, allowing you to pick up some useful items such as potions, XP Scrolls, food, or an adorable pet! If you've played ESO during previous free-play events for your platform, you'll find that any previous characters and progression will remain, allowing you to continue your adventures in Tamriel as if you never left. If you decide to buy ESO after the free play event, your characters will be waiting for you.

The ESO game client will be approximately 80GB in size, so ensure you have enough space on your machine's hard drive for the download.

New players can also take part in our In-Game Dungeon event, running from November 30 until December 6. To participate, complete a random dungeon via the Dungeon Finder (Normal or Veteran) to earn a Mysterious Reward Box that could contain a host of in-game rewards or collectible prize packs, including experience scrolls, potions, pets, mounts, and costumes. You can earn one Mysterious Reward Box per day per character.

If you're lucky enough to hit the jackpot, you could even receive a pack of 20 homes or 20 mounts!

Finally, don't forget to sign up for our #10MillionStories Sweepstakes promotion for a chance to win some awesome in-game and real-world prizes (eligibility restrictions apply). You'll even earn one bonus sweepstakes entry for every day you complete a random dungeon!
