Starting today, Bethesda is inviting gamers to check out The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited (TESO) during a free weekend trial. Running through Sunday, December 13, the free trial weekend will allow players to experience all that TESO has to offer, and participants will also be eligible to enter to win $1 million as part of the $1 million Sweepstakes.
