Free Play Days: The Elder Scrolls Online And Rainbow Six Siege

This week, we have some exciting games to announce for the Free Play Days event! To make it even better, both games will be available for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to play for a whole week.

Starting today, The Elder Scrolls Online is available from Tuesday, August 27 at 7:00 a.m. PDT through to Tuesday, September 3 at 7:00 a.m. PDT.

Tomorrow, Rainbow Six Siege becomes available from Wednesday, August 28 at 12:01 a.m. PDT through to Tuesday, September 3 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

You can find and install the games here. To download on console, click on the Gold member area on the home dashboard on your Xbox One.

If you like what you’ve played and want to keep the fun going, the games are also currently available for purchase at a discount so you can continue playing while keeping your Gamerscore and achievements earned in-game during the event.

The Elder Scrolls Online

Explore a world without limits during The Elder Scrolls Online Free Play Days Event. The base game includes access to four powerful Classes, 23 unique zones filled with adventures, the game’s epic main story questline, and much more. That’s tons of adventure in the ever-growing world of Tamriel!

In addition to the base game access, you can visit Morrowind, the island home of the Dark Elves. There, explore ESO’s first Chapter and help the Tribunal member Vivec restore his lost power.

But that’s not all! Begin your own Season of the Dragon adventure by checking out the Elsweyr Prologue quest and release Dragons into the realm of the Khajiit. The Season of the Dragon began earlier this year with the Wrathstone DLC game pack, but you can experience this important part of the year-long story for yourself during the Free Play Days event!

If you’ve played in a Free Play Days event previously, you’ll be able to continue your adventure as if you never left, and all new ESO accounts made will also receive 500 crowns for the in-game Crown Store.

Rainbow Six Siege

The tense, tactical firefights of Rainbow Six Siege will be free for a week to all Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members, throwing open the doors for anyone who wants to breach through walls, smash through floors, and outwit enemy teams using an ever-growing roster of gadget-equipped Operators. During the Free Play Days event, all maps and modes will be available for free to players, along with 20 of the game’s Operators.

The Free Play Days event is an ideal opportunity for new players to ease into the game ahead of the upcoming Operation Ember Rise, which will rework the Kanal map and introduce two new Latin American Operators: Goyo, a Defender from Mexico whose deployable shields hide an explosive, fiery surprise; and Amaru, an Attacker from Peru whose grappling hook lets her zip to ledges and crash through windows.

Quick thinking, creative strategies, and an Xbox Live Gold membership are all you’ll need to hold your own in Rainbow Six Siege, so get ready to breach and clear.
