Xbox Live Gold members will once again get a chance to dive into the world of Tamriel for free this weekend. Microsoft announced that The Elder Scrolls Online will be free to play for Gold subscribers now through the end of the day on Tuesday, March 27.
As usual with these free play days, any progress you make will carry over to the full game if you decide to buy in. That means any characters you create will still be available, and you'll be able to pick up where you left off. Just be aware that you're in for a hefty download if you want to give The Elder Scrolls Online a shot: the game weighs in at around 80GB.
Given that Bethesda just announced the next expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online, Summerset, will launch in June, now's as good a time as any to see if the world of Tamriel strikes your fancy. And if you're playing on Xbox One X, The Elder Scrolls Online's 4K and HDR support is a good way to check out the extra power afforded by the console.
If you're and Xbox Live Gold member, you can download The Elder Scrolls Online from its product page at the Microsoft Store on your Xbox now. The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, which bundles the base game with the Morrowind expansion, is also currently up for grabs at a discount.
