The Elder Scrolls Online is opening up its doors to all comers. They're holding a free trial this weekend across PC, Mac and Xbox One and will be giving away $1 million to one lucky player.

7. Download the game and start playing.
1. Download ESO through Xbox Live.
2. Play the game. Note that you'll need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to do so, though.
The free trial will run from December 10th through December 13th. To keep playing past the trial, you'll need to purchase a copy of ESO. Fortunately, ZeniMax is slashing the price of the game by 60% until December 14th.
Earlier this year, ZeniMax removed the subscription requirement from Elder Scrolls Online. A new in-game store allows players to purchase optional convenience and customization items along with new expansions. The currency for this in-game store, Crowns, will be on sale this weekend for existing players as well as free trial players:
While there's no PS4 free trial this weekend, ZeniMax says on the game's website that there may be one in the future. Apparently tech limitations are what prevented the console from receiving this particular trial:
Please note that we're working with Sony on a technical solution to support a Free Weekend and hope to offer our PS4 fans the same opportunity in the near future.
