EPIC GAMES store and Elder Scrolls Online
ESO can be claimed for free on the games page here. The promotion started on the 20th of July and runs until the 27th of July.
Once you have claimed the game you can keep it forever. However, if you want to play any DLCs or the new Necrom Chapter you will have to pay for it. Instead of paying for the DLCs you could also use the monthly subscription of ESO to get access to ALL the DLCs. The base game will already keep you busy for a long time though.
It is recommended to playtest the base game first before you decide to buy any more content in the game.
When you claim ESO on the EPIC GAMES store you will also get the "Sigil of the Alliance War Back Bling" for free in Fortnite.
Additionally, when you purchase any version of ESO: Necrom from the Epic Games Store, you will receive the Ebonheart Battleaxe Pickaxe and the Ebonheart Battleaxe Back Bling Fortnite items.
