The PC version of Elder Scrolls Online is now available on Steam. There’s also a limited time only sale on ESO to celebrate the occasion.
The Standard and Imperial editions of the game will be on sale until Monday, July 21st. You can pick up the Standard Edition for -50%, and the Imperial Edition for -40%.
You can also upgrade to the Imperial Edition and purchase the Palomino Horse on Steam.
Anyone who purchases the Imperial Edition of the game during the sale will receive an in-game vanity pet: the Wolfhound.
