Legacy of the Bretons has made waves in The Elder Scrolls community with players already packing up for an adventure on High Isle. Nearly 20 million fans have already reserved their tickets on the transport across the sea. Now, ZeniMax Online has made it possible for even more to join them.

Here’s what you need to know to play the prologue to Legacy of the Bretons — at least for a little while.

ESO is Free-to-Play Until April 26

From now until Tuesday, April 26 at 10 a.m. EDT, players will be able to log-in and experience all that ESO has to offer completely for free. During this period, anyone on the game’s approved platforms can download and play the game free of charge.

AddItionally, during this time, both the standard base game and it’s last expansion will be on sale at a 70% and 67% discount, respectively. All new accounts made during this time will get a complimentary 500 Crowns to spend in the in-game Crown Store.

Speaking of Crowns, the special currency will also be on sale with discounts up to 40% for its largest packs. So, if you like what you see, you can invest in more without the guilt of paying full price.

Legacy of the Bretons is slated to release on April 27 — and April 28 for PlayStation users.
