The lights are on
A new trailer for Zenimax Online Studios’ upcoming Elder Scrolls MMO, comes alongside confirmation of yesterday’s reports of an Imperial Edition. Now we have the specific details of what’s included.
The premium package for Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls Online comes with a 12 inch statue of Daedric prince Molag Bal, a key antagonist in the game, a map of Tamriel, unique packaging, and a number of digital elements. With the Imperial Edition, you’ll gain access to a white horse, a mudcrab pet, and the Rings of Mara in-game item that awards an experience bonus.
The Imperial Edition is also the only way to play as the Imperial race. Additionally, all pre-orders will have access to the Explorer’s Pack. This ensures that any characters you create can join any alliance regardless of race, a Scutter pet, and four digital treasure maps.
The video below is a cinematic fight around a "dark anchor" point. We saw one of these events unfold in-game in a recent video. The Imperial Edition is priced at $99.99. A digital version (without the statue and map) is available directly from Bethesda and some retailers for $79.99. Those that purchase either the digital standard or Imperial edition from Bethesda and select other retailers will get access five days before the rest of the public.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be available for PC and Mac on April 4, 2014. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are coming in June.

That price isn't nearly as bad as I thought it'd be.
From everything we've seen it looks pretty good I'm still on the side though that won't pay $60 plus $15 a month to play this unless those guy's who appeared to be Dedra are a secret playable faction then in that case...
*queue obligatory horse armour joke*
I wonder if I can get any amrour for my white horse?
i want that
I wanted so bad not to care about this game, but the more I see and read, the more impressed I am. This may be my first purchase on PS4. And the bonuses for this edition are totally worth it
Can they just go ahead and make an entire movie in this style?
$100 special edition, STILL have to pay $15/month to play.
I enjoyed the NJ Yaiba commercial more than the movie footage they presented.. lol
Star Wars The Old Republic had an amazing CGI before the launch as well. Shame they make people pay more to pick the race they wish to play.
I don't know how I'm going to pay for it, but damn it I'm going to try! I couldn't care less what all of the naysayers say, after all this is the internet. Sadly I never got into any of the beta tests, but several friends who have said it was really damn fun, so I'm looking forward to it.
My time spent in the beta (3 tests) really turned me off from the game. It feels almost like a mixture of GW2 and an even more streamlined Skyrim, definitely not worth the sub imo, and that's coming from someone who's paying for both WoW and FF14 atm. Not super happy about them locking out a race, either. Yes, I know they're the bad guys, but you shouldn't lock big stuff like that behind a paywall in a P2P game.
