Good news, guys and girls, Tamriel has been the home and backdrop to the critically acclaimed and best-selling Elder Scrolls role-playing games for some 18 years, and now we can now officially sign up for The Elder Scrolls Online beta program. Beta testing is always cool, because if selected, we will start this epic journey and will be one of the first people to embark upon the newest Elder Scrolls adventure.
Please be aware that this is just beta sign-ups. Once our first beta test begins, we’ll make sure everyone knows—watch our official website, Facebook, Google+, and Twitter for an announcement about the first round of invites.
As part of the announcement, ZeniMax released a brand new cinematic trailer for ESO, created by the renowned Blur Studio.
