Elder Scrolls Online players get five free days of game time

As an apology for the issues that plagued The Elder Scrolls Online at launch (botting, spam, dy-synced quests, etc.), Bethesda is giving players five free days of game time.

"We recognize that some of the launch issues—especially black market botting and spam, de-synced quests, and the disappearing bank slot bug—affected the early gameplay experience of a number of players. Fixing these problems required us to take the megaservers offline, costing players time in the game," said game director Matt Firor.

The offer is extended to every ESO player who set up an active account prior to 8pm EDT Thursday May 1st and who are currently enjoying 30 days of included game time. If you are eligible to receive the additional days, then a confirmation will be sent to your registered email address.

"This is a small gesture to show our thanks for being part of the ESO community while we work this extraordinary game and service even better," Firor added.
