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.
