While the original version of The Elder Scrolls Online was riddled with problems, Zenimax has slowly but surely managed to transform it into a highly enjoyable MMO. If you're wondering why that might be the case, or if you would like to test the claim for yourself, you might be interested to hear that The Elder Scrolls Online is currently entirely free to try out.

The "free play" event will last until April 3rd across all platforms, and will give you access to a pretty large chunk of content. You will be able to explore all of the base game's zones and dungeons, the whole Morrowind expansion, as well as check out the prologue for the upcoming Elsweyr expansion.

If you end up liking what you see, it's also worth mentioning that The Elder Scrolls Online and its Morrowind expansion are currently on a 50% discount on Steam, bringing the price down to €10. The sale will last until April 8th, a good few days after the free trial has ended, so you should have plenty of time to think things over and decide whether picking up a new MMO is something you're really up for.

Personally, I would recommend you give it a try. The Elder Scrolls Online really has improved quite heavily since its inception, and even though it's not exactly the game for me, it is still something I had a good few hours of fun with. So whether you plan on playing it long-term or not, I'd say it's worth checking out while it's entirely free.
