  1. Pre-Order Bonus: Join Any Faction with Any Race

    Following the leaks and speculation surrounding an Imperial Edition (now official), ZeniMax has made a second notable announcement - pre-ordering ESO will allow players to choose which alliance to join regardless of their character's race.

    Today we unveiled the pre-order bonus for The Elder Scrolls Online for PC, Mac, PS4, or Xbox One, available at any participating retailer! We’ve also launched our new online store, where you can pre-purchase digital editions of the game for PC or Mac. Every pre-order and pre-purchase comes with the Explorer’s Pack, which includes these great digital bonuses:

    • The characters you create can join any alliance, no matter which race you choose
    • The Scuttler, a tiny but loyal vanity pet
    • A bundle of four bonus treasure maps


    In addition to the above, early adopters will be given five days of early access.

    If you pre-order or pre-purchase a PC or Mac edition of The Elder Scrolls Online, you’ll be among the first to begin your adventures in Tamriel with early access! Five days of early access will be rewarded to anyone who pre-purchases through The Elder Scrolls Online Store, and additional early access programs will be available through participating retailers.


    The article rounded up the surprising news with a new cinematic trailer.

  2. ESO Console Costs: Xbox Live Gold Required, PS+ Not

    According to the official EU PlayStation Blog, PlayStation 4 users will not be required to pay two monthly subscriptions - one for PS+ and one for ESO - to play The Elder Scrolls Online.

    Will playing online with The Elder Scrolls Online have a separate subscription compared to PlayStation Plus?

    A PlayStation Plus membership is not required to play The Elder Scrolls Online. PS4 players will only be required to pay the same monthly subscription associated with The Elder Scrolls Online that PC and Mac users will pay — nothing more.


    That's obviously exciting news for PS4 players who were hesitant about the possibility of paying an additional fee on top of the already hefty cost of ESO.

    But what about Microsoft and the Xbox One? Game Informer tracked down Bethesda for clarification on whether or not the PS4's policy would be shared with the One. And the verdict is...

    Xbox One users will need an Xbox Gold subscription,


    ... Less than ideal. As expected, One users will have to pay two subscriptions.

  3. ESO ESRB Rating Announced - Mature

    The Elder Scrolls Online is officially a game intended for "Mature" audiences, as rated by the ESRB. The announcement was released January 22nd via the official Facebook page...

    The ESRB advised us that it has given The Elder Scrolls Online a Mature rating. While we may disagree with the ESRB’s determination, we do not plan to challenge the rating, and we are unwilling to change the game’s content to achieve a different rating. The game we have created is the one we want our fans to be able to play.

    As a result of the ESRB rating, we are in the process of promptly updating everything with the required rating and age gates, including game trailers, web sites, and ads. Thanks for your understanding. We can’t wait to welcome players into The Elder Scrolls Online soon.


    ZeniMax clearly expected and intended for the game to achieve a "Teen" rating for a broader potential audience. However, those hoping for a more mature overall theme and the potential for gorier graphical details will likely be pleased with the ESRB's determination.

    We have completed a fantastic skill database containing all known skills and their effects. It contains up-to-date information in an easy format, so please use it!

    Original Article


    Earlier today, ElderSouls.com member ESO_Leaks (special thanks!) posted a tentative version of the racial skills for both the Aldmeri Dominion and the Daggerfall Covenant.

  8. ESO Subscription Model Announced

    In a recent interview with German gaming website GameStar, Matt Firor provided new details on the payment model of Zenimax's upcoming MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online. The news confirmed that ESO will utilize a traditional monthly subscription fee, ending conjecture that the game will carry free-to-play or other payment models.

    ... We are very happy to finally announce our model. It's very simple - you pay once per month after the first 30 days and the entire game is available to you.


    When asked if this older model could compete with recent free-to-play games that employ oft-despised "payment gateway" and "pay-to-win" systems, Firor responded that this was not in the spirit of the Elder Scrolls series.

    We feel that putting pay gates between the player and content at any point in game ruins that feeling of freedom, and just having one small monthly fee for 100% access to the game fits the IP and the game much better than a system where you have to pay for features and access as you play.


    Firor went on to explain specific details concerning the cost of the subscription system.
    • Unlimited play for the first 30 days with the purchase of the game.
    • Following the first month you'll pay a flat fee for continued, unlimited access to the game.
    • Basic monthly charge will be $14.99/€12.99/£8.99.
    • Expect discounts if you buy multiple months at a time.
    Of course, there are also some additional interesting takeaways.
    • New content available every four to six weeks.
    • Graphics, engine, content, etc., are all the same between the PC and console versions.
    • There will be an open beta exclusive to the PS4 for a limited time.
    • Time frame for console betas will be discussed early next year; this probably pushes back our previous estimated release dates.
    A special thanks to community member irons for bringing this interview to our attention.

  9. ESO Beta: 46 Minutes of Leaked Footage

    On July 26th, a new video featuring a substantial 46 minutes of exclusive ESO Beta footage found its way on to YouTube.


    As you can see, ESO is really starting to take shape; it has come a long way in the last few months since the first game-play video came out. I know that I'm not alone in my growing excitement for its spring 2014 debut.

  10. ESO Beta: Nightblade Footage Leaked

    Earlier today (July 14th), an ESO leakster uploaded a video to YouTube featuring 10 minutes of new gameplay footage. Although YouTube removed the video after a few hours, viewers were ecstatic to find another version before it was removed as well. The video can be viewed through the following link.

    Leaked Beta Footage 3 - Nightblade Gameplay

    Update: the video has been removed.

    As you can tell from the title, the video notably features the mysterious Nightblade class, which only recently had information regarding its skills leaked.

    If you're interested in watching additional ESO videos (official and third party), you may do so by browsing our Elder Scrolls Online media database.

  11. ESO Arriving on Consoles in Spring 2014

    Bethesda has announced that Elder Scrolls Online will not only be arriving on the PC and Mac, but also on the upcoming next-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. The announcement, posted on Bethblog, stated the following.

    Bethesda Softworks® today announced that The Elder Scrolls® Online is in development for both the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The game will launch on these consoles, in addition to the previously announced PC and Mac versions, in Spring 2014.


    Matt Grandstaff, commonly known on the official Bethesda forums and blog as Gstaff, stated that ESO servers will be localized by platform.

    The megaserver technology featured in The Elder Scrolls Online will allow PC (Windows OS) players and Mac players to play together. XBox One players will play on their own megaserver as will PlayStation 4 players.


    In addition to the news that the game is being developed for consoles, the release date has been narrowed to "Spring 2014." Although the majority of fans were probably hoping for a holiday 2013 release, 2014 is in line with rumors that have been circulating for several weeks.

    Bethesda also released an impressive new game play trailer.



    Stay tuned as we continue to cover E3!

  15. Elder Scrolls Online Game Footage Leaked

    Earlier this week, an ESO Beta tester by the name of Worst Youtube leaked live game footage of the current Beta build. As word of the video slowly crept through various forums and fansites, more and more people were able to witness what was supposed to be top-secret content.

    Feedback was overwhelmingly negative. Skeptical commentators were critical of the majority of the footage, specifically calling out the noticeably dated graphics and bland combat. Some attempted to defend the game's current state, claiming that no legitimate complaints can be levied against a game still in the beta stage of development. The resulting back-and-forth arguments have caused a notable divide in a community that has otherwise been full of hope and optimism.

    Despite an aggressive effort by Zenimax to remove the leaked content from YouTube, Vimeo, and other sites, many uploads of the video can still be found. Those interested in viewing the leaked content for themselves can do so searching for it online.
