We're not entirely sure how popular The Elder Scrolls Online is these days, but we're going to guess that it's not quite as popular as it perhaps should be. This theory is backed by the fact that earlier tonight at The Game Awards 2015, Bethesda's Pete Hines announced that the company would be giving one lucky player $1 million in the near future. Yep, that's a guaranteed spike in active users right there.

And yes, that one lucky player could well be you. All that you have to do to be in with a chance is fill out an entry form and play the game at some point between now and the 10th January. No, really, that's it.

You can find more details by clicking through here, but we'd also recommend checking that you're actually eligible to enter by giving this page a read, as some countries of residence aren't listed.

Even if you don't get your hands on the one million dollars, 1000 entrants will win 3000 crowns - the title's premium currency - to spend however they wish. Okay, so it's not exactly a substitute for the grand prize, but it's something, at least.

Will you be logging into The Elder Scrolls Online for this? Feel free to send some of your winnings our way in the comments section below.
