Elder Scrolls Online players will be receiving five extra days of game time due to the megaservers being taken offline to address various issues within the MMO.


According to the notice posted by game director Matt Firor, the servers were taken offline to address launch issues along with black market botting and spam.

Other issues such as de-synced quests and a missing bank slot bug affected early gameplay.

“Fixing these problems required us to take the megaservers offline, costing players time in the game,” said Firor. “In recognition of this experience and to show our gratitude to everyone who supported the launch, we are giving an additional five days of included game time to every ESO player who set up an active account prior to 8pm EDT Thursday May 1st and who are currently enjoying their 30 days of included game time.

“If you’re eligible to receive the five additional days, a confirmation will be sent to your account’s registered email address. This is a small gesture to show our thanks for being part of the ESO community while we work to make this extraordinary game and service even better.”
