Good news for all the Bethesda fans that haven’t gotten a chance to play the Elder Scrolls Online yet: During Thanksgiving weekend, starting the 23rd of November at 12 AM and ending the 27th of November at 12PM, players can engage in the rich fantasy world of Elder Scrolls Online. There’s a catch, however: Players must be Xbox Live Gold members. This can be considered a reward,or a way to give thanks (since it’s Thanksgiving) to Xbox Live members that have supported the platform. The version of the game which will be made available is the Tamriel Unlimited version. Players will also receive a total of 500 crowns, the in-game currency used which can be spent at the Crown store.
For those eligible to play Elder Scrolls Online for free on Thanksgiving weekend but don’t know much about the game, the game is set a thousand years before the events that go down in Bethesda’s last Elder Scrolls title, Skyrim. In this Skyrim prequel, players are immersed in a world where three factions battle for supremacy over the continent of Tamriel while bigger threats lurk from the shadows.
The enticing lore that made Skyrim one of the best RPG video games ever created returns in Elder Scroll Online as fans craving a second helping ever since Skyrim launched can now rejoice at the opportunity of playing with their friends online.
If you are interested in giving Elder Scroll Online a try, make sure you have at least 80GB of free space as the online adventure packs quite a punch in terms of storage requirements.
