Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Online Studios have announced that beta signups are now open for The Elder Scrolls Online. Interested gamers simply have to go to the website and complete a simple application form for a chance to play. It’s highly recommended to fill out your application as fully as possible as this can increase your chances of selection. It’s also worth doing so from your gaming machine as there is a section to submit your DxDiag information.
Selected beta registrants will be granted early access to beta test the game. They will be among the first to experience this epic world with others in one of 2013’s most highly-anticipated releases. Timing and details of the start of playtests will be provided at a later date to those who register.
The Elder Scrolls Online brings the series online for the first time. Using ZeniMax Online’s Megaserver technology, players will join one connected world with a built in social network that lets them stay up-to-date with everything their friends are doing. Megaserver technology avoids the hassle of shard selection and makes The Elder Scrolls Online one of the most socially enabled games ever created. Whether playing alone, or with hundreds of friends, players can develop their own style of play as they embark upon an epic quest across Tamriel.
We’re really excited to get the game into players’ hands. We receive invaluable feedback through the beta process, and that helps us ensure that the game will be one of the best online gaming experiences ever offered – one worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.
