Bethesda has released a lavish new CG trailer, Arrival, for upcoming The Elder Scrolls Online, continuing the industry trend of giving big-budget MMOs incredible trailers.
The 8 minute trailer (honestly, how much must this have cost to make?) continues the story of the game's last CG trailer, with our trio of cover heroes fighting it out until their attention is diverted to a demonic new threat.
As the trailer continues we get to see the action taken closer to Tamriel's capital city, Cyrodiil, which Oblivion players will already be intimately familiar with.
Bethesda also announced the Imperial Edition of The Elder Scrolls Online, which will be sold both physically and digitally. The boxed version will retail for $99.99/€99.99/£89.99/AU$139.95, and the digital version will be sold for $79.99/€79.99/£69.99/AU$119.95.
The physical edition comes with a 30.5cm status of daedric prince Molag Bal, a 224-page illustrated guide to Tamriel, and a 53.3cm x 66cm map of the continent. You'll also get the game in a fancy steelbook.
As for in-game content--which you'll also find in the digital The Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition--players will recieve the ability to play as an Imperial, including an exclusive white horse mount, alongside a Mudcrab pet and the Rings of Mara, which gives you an experience bonus when playing alongside a friend.
The Elder Scrolls Online will be released for PC and Mac on April 4. The game comes with a 30-day subscription to the MMO, but players must then spend $14.99 (€12.99/£8.99) a month to continue playing.
Producer Matt Firor said yesterday that the game would not require PlayStation Plus when it reaches PS4 later in the year.
