The Elder Scrolls Online will be hosting a special plus bonus event this week offering players special rewards, a free premium trial, and more.

The Plus Bonus Event is set to start on July 5 at 3 pm BST and will end on July 10 at 4:59 am BST. As mentioned before, players will be able to earn a lot of rewards and receive a special trial of ESO Plus.

Thanks to the official website, Zenimax Studios detailed some of the highlights of the event, including details on exactly what ESO Plus does.  Check it out down below:


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


All ESO players are invited to join the free trial of ESO Plus for the duration of the event, no strings attached. Getting in is as simple as activating the trial through the ‘Featured’ section of the Crown Store, and players will immediately enjoy the benefits listed above.

For those who are currently ESO Plus members will also be invited to celebrate in this week’s event and will be rewarded as well. New crates with amazing rewards – mounts, pets, costumes and more will be given out for free.
