In celebration of The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) coming to Epic Games Store, Bethesda and ZeniMax Online have announced that the MMORPG will be available to claim for free — but only for a limited time.
If you've been on the fence about picking up ESO, now is the perfect time to jump in. Not only is the game free to purchase through this offer, but it's also free to play. While the game does feature an optional subscription service called ESO Plus, the majority of the game's content bar DLCs can be freely enjoyed without it.
This version of ESO includes access to five of the game’s classes: Warden, Sorcerer, Nightblade, Templar, and Dragonknight. In addition, players will be able to adventure through 24 unique zones, and enjoy both the Battlegrounds and Alliance War PvP game modes. Players who pick up ESO via the Epic Games Store will also unlock the Sigil of the Alliance War Back Bling to be used in Fortnite.
In further celebrations, a brand new in-game bundle as been made available in Fortnite titled the Heroes of Tamriel. The bundle features a variety of cosmetics including Outfit, Pickaxe, and Weapon Wrap. Players will have until Wednesday, August 5 to purchase these items in Fortnite.
