Starting this Wednesday until July 10, The Elder Scrolls Online will be hosting a special event for all ESO Plus players. If you're not already subscribed to ESO Plus, then you'll be able to try the premium subscription and rewards service for free. So what's the deal with ESO Plus, and why are they so keen you giving it a shot? Apparently Bethesda believes that once you get a taste of what ESO Plus offers you'll be hooked. So what does it offer?

"ESO Plus is an optional subscription for The Elder Scrolls Online that rewards members with a host of benefits, including access to DLC game pack content and other in-game 'quality of life' bonuses, including:

  • Full access to all DLC game packs, including Imperial City, Orsinium, Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood, and Shadows of the Hist – that's a bunch of new zones, hours and hours of new quests, additional dungeons, and more!

  • 1,500 Crowns per month to spend on the in-game store (paid members only – the Free Trial will not reward 1,500 Crowns)

  • Unlimited storage for crafting materials

  • Double bank space for your account

  • A 10% increase to Experience and Gold acquisition, Crafting Inspiration, and Trait Research

  • Double Furnishings and Collectibles space in player housing

  • Exclusive ability to dye costumes"

As you may know, unlike most MMOs The Elder Scrolls online does not require a monthly subscription fee to play. You can play the game all you'd like after buying the base version, but ESO Plus is Bethesda's way of making a monthly subscription fee worth your while. If you haven't logged in in a few weeks, now would be the time.

To activate your free ESO Plus trial, you'll need to head over to the Crown Store and check out the Featured Category. There you'll see an option to begin your ESO Plus free trial. Fire that sucker up and you'll have five days to enjoy most of the ESO Plus benefits, some discounts excepted. There will also be exclusive rewards during this period meant solely for current ESO Plus subscribers that won't be meted out to free trial members, but hey, you can't argue with free benefits, right?
