More Elder Scrolls Online beta invites sent out

Check your email, as Bethesda has dispatched a "ton more" invitations to upcoming MMO.

by

Bethesda is ringing in the New Year by inviting a "ton more" players to visit Tamriel as part of the ongoing beta test for the studio's upcoming MMO The Elder Scrolls Online.

The invitations went out yesterday. If your invitation didn't land in your general email inbox, check your spam folder, Bethesda said. Gmail users should check their "promotions" tab, as invitations for the Elder Scrolls Online beta test will be sent there.

Bethesda has been steadily increasing the number of players for the Elder Scrolls Online beta since it originally began in March 2013. If you didn't get in through this latest round, no need to worry, as more invitations will be sent out ahead of launch on April 4, Bethesda said.

Right now, the Elder Scrolls Online beta is for PC only. It's not clear if the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions, due out in June 2014, are also going to receive a beta period.

You can sign up to beta test The Elder Scrolls Online through the game's website today. You'll also need to agree to a strict non-disclosure agreement that prohibits you from sharing details about the game in its pre-release state.

I just wish it was only the $60 + whatever price for expansions...the monthly $15 fee is ridiculous. Guild Wars 2 is doing more than fine with the $60 entry fee alone.

By posting that you have a beta invite is in violation of the NDA is it not?

15 dollars only me, but im not the only Bethesda fan, if me and my brothers want to play we have to pay 45 dollars per month..............

It hasn't failed in the past? Lol. Lets take a trip down memory lane shall we. Lord of the rings online, TERA, Star wars the old republic, Everquest 2, etc. The Sub fee really is a joke in my opinion, nether the less i will be paying it since i do like the game. But it might go F2P sooner or later after launch most likely

ya then make me pay 60 at launch and thats the end of it do you realy feel that that sounds like f2p no one said it should be just that sub is stupid

F2P attracts the LoL dipshits. I'd much rather pay than put up with a bunch of 12 year olds who can't afford to buy video games.

So, because I work in the video game industry, I can't access the beta... All I want to know; anyone played it? Is it GOOD????

I'm in but it's only for two days... I got in before for two days and wasn't able to find time to play it. Will probably happen again

You may get a invite but if you get hacked then they wipe it from your account and give your account back to you which is complete bs.

This game will be a failure. They will eventually see reason and go free to play, or they will just shut it down

@franky111they are not doing more than fine on just the box price....some players have said in the GW2 forums they dumped $50 a month on the cash shop (more than the monthly sub fee for ESO)..one player said he has spent over $200 in the game saying also "i have dumped more money in this game than i would have just paying a monthly sub fee"....Thats why ESO has a sub fee...one price a month for EVERYTHING the game has to offer, instead of pay gates everywhere just to get access to the ENTIRE game..such as GW2.

Believe me, it sucks. I'm not talking about bugs (it's a beta afterall) but it feels and looks aweful.

EQ1 looks better then this :P

i have been in the last 2 beta's...in November is was eh ok...this past weekend, it was like night and day...the graphics are amazing, the detail is amazing...what they have done in the last 3 months is incredible...I was skeptical in November, but now im convinced. in getting it in april... but thats just my opinion..you will really have to form your own opinion on the game

ricku1967
ricku1967

so was i in the last beta in November....but this past weekends test..night and day...im getting it now

@Saithanand trust me, you havent played the latest beta (last weekend).the game looks gorgeous, the detail is fantastic..what they did between November to now is incredible..its almost a different game in just 3 months...just think what they will do in the next 3 months

@Saithan@ricku1967i played the beta in november and i was thinking the same thing..then the beta last weekend i thought they made significant progress, the game to me looks great, character detail, graphically, and i felt the opposite of you, i think the game looks 100 times better than EQ and most definitely better than the cartoon graphics of wow.. I really dont know what you mean by using the keyboard more in ESO..block with right mouse button, attack with left mouse button, movement is the same as any other MMO (W,A,D,S) and special powers 1-5. and im sure when its released, you will be able to map your mouse how ever you like to play the game...but to each is own..i think the game has tremendous potential..the game might not be for everybody..but i like it, and to me i guess thats all that matters..everyone is entitled to their opinion

@ricku1967@SaithanI did play last weekend ; ) Saying "it sucks" is probably too strong.

The surroundings are looking good but I think everything in the ESO world that moves (characters, wildlife, monsters, etc.) look like they are 2D. It's like looking into a shoebox diorama.

And I just don't like the controls. Games like EQ or WoW I play for  95% with the mouse and with ESO I'm forced to use the keyboard.
