ESO Plus Bonus Event Brings Crown Crates for Subscribers & Free Trial

The Elder Scrolls Online is holding a special ESO Plus Bonus Event from the 5th to the 9th of July. Both players that already have an ESO Plus membership and those that don’t can profit from this. First off, if you are a Plus member, you can get up to five free Crown Crates, just by logging in each day. Here’s how, according to the official ESO website:

  • The event begins on July 5 at 10am EDT and ends on July 9 at 11:59pm EDT.
  • If you have an active ESO Plus membership, you can earn one free Crown Crate for each day you log in during the event period, up to a maximum of five crates.
  • You must log in between 12:00am EDT and 11:59pm EDT (Eastern) on each day of the event.
  • Crown Crates earned during the event will be delivered to your account on July 17.
  • If you are not an ESO Plus member, you can enjoy a free trial of the service for the duration of the event to see what it is all about. For more details, see below. If you decide to purchase a full ESO Plus membership, you still earn free Crown Crates for each day you are logged in as a member!

As for non-Plus members, you can give ESO Plus a spin for the duration of the event, completely free. All you have to do is go over to the Crown Store and select the “Featured” category. From there, just select ESO Plus Free Trial, and you’re good to go! You’ll be able to enjoy all the perks of an ESO Plus membership. The only thing you won’t get are the bonus Crown Crates, since those are for paying customers only.

Here’s what they will get, though:

  • Full access to all DLC game packs – new zones, quests, dungeons and more!
    • Including Imperial City, Orsinium, Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood, and Shadows of the Hist DLC game packs.
  • Unlimited storage for crafting materials
  • Double Bank space for your account
  • 10% increase to Experience& Gold acquisition, Crafting Inspiration, and Trait Researchrates
  • Double Furnishings and Collectibles space in player housing
  • Exclusive ability to dye costumes

So, whether you just want some free loot, or want to check out if being an ESO Plus member is worth it, don’t forget to log in from July 5th to July 9th!
