How to actually start playing "for free" this week? My dad wanted to try the game so as soon as I saw the news we created him an account (yesterday) and today there's this subsite for the play for free: https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-gb/freeplay so we go here choose platform, then it asks to create an account, but we did that yesterday so we click the link at the top "Click here instead." and it shows error 500 "We're sorry, the page you're looking for cannot be found." - however if I try to open this link(https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/39834) in a new tab it actually works and says "You do not need to create a new account to participate in The Elder Scrolls Online Free Trial on PC, you can simply log in with your existing account." and the word account is a link to the login page, so we login and then there's no option to download the game, just buy game or redeem code, while on the website it says "If you already own The Elder Scrolls Online for the PC, you can download the game client by logging into your account and clicking the Download Game link. " but such a button does not exist. I have also tried to login with the new account on my PC where I already have the client but it just gives a login error. So how to play "for free" this week?
Thanks for the tip @Tevalaur but I tried the link you gave me yesterday. I tried one with en-us and de in the URL, neither worked. I definitely activated the account, as I have received another mail, stating that the activation was a success.
