The PS5 enhanced version of the game will be free to download for all ESO owners.

The game will have the two game modes that have been popping up all over PS5 and Xbox Series X/S games: performance mode and fidelity mode. In performance mode, you can expect ESO to run at a smooth and stable 60 FPS. In fidelity mode, the game will have “increased draw distance, fully unlocked high-resolution textures, improved reflections, improved ambient occlusion, improved shadows, and greater depth of field.”

Play ESO for Free

Currently, the Elder Scrolls Online is free on the PlayStation store until April 13. You can try out the base game as well as the Vvardenfell zone expansion to see what the buzz is all about.

Additionally, the Blackwood Prologue questline is free for anyone with the base game to check out in anticipation of the Blackwood Chapter expansion coming June 8.
