PSA: The Elder Scrolls Online is offering a free trial of its ESO Plus subscription

    
13

If you’ve already bought The Elder Scrolls Online and are curious about the benefits of subscribing to the game but aren’t too keen on that whole spending more money thing, then the latest free trial is right up your alley, as it lets players get a taste of ESO Plus benefits without forking over a dime.

Between now and Tuesday, January 26th, players can hop into the in-game Crown Store, navigate to the ESO Plus tab, and select a free trial without any credit card details or other strings attached. The free trial of the subscription grants the vast majority of the benefits like DLC game pack access, double the bank space, a crafting bag that stores crafting materials, 10% more XP and gold, and the ability to dye costumes among others. The free monthly Crown stipend and ESO Plus-specific deals, however, are not included in the trial.

For those who are curious about this trial, there’s a few more details posted on the game’s website. Otherwise, perhaps now is as good a time as any to see if the benefits are worth the $15 a month. Incidentally, if you haven’t bought the base version of ESO, that will set you back about $20.

It’s been invaluable, like Patch of Exile’s currency tab.

Couple of notes:

* If you have previously been a subscriber, you can still get the trial period. Just ‘buy’ it off the Crown Store for zero dollars. Time to empty those mules to the craft bag!

* After you get the trial, it will be necessary to log out, then back in for the automatic materials transfer to trigger. From there, be sure to visit every character that is holding mats to get them transferred.

Have fun! :)

Did they fix the combat yet?

No?

Yeah not going to bother.

No, One Tamriel improved the game immeasurably.

One Tamriel was one of the best things to happen with this game. I really don’t understand MMO players talking about challenge. There is no challenge in MMOs in general.

I think he means those of us that already have ESO+, which is, of course, nothing.

Oof, went right over my head. My mistake, thanks.

We used to get crates, but that was when we would get crates as a daily login thing as well.

I find it odd that they took it away considering they were just one off crates. There were a ton of times that I wasn’t playing but logged in to get the crate and then decided “oooh I feel like playing now” and sub because I can’t live without the crafting bag heh

The satisfaction of ostensibly seeing an influx of people into your game, who may have never even considered it worth testing….

….but in fact since it’s a what, 90gig DL, it’s going to be mostly players like me who have owned the game for a long while but never found it engaging enough to pay for who simply log in for the freebies (free access to crafting storage is HUGE, even if only for a brief time) and then are unlikely to come back or pay for them again.

Is that about it? :)
