Bethesda Softworks Announce “Imperial Edition” of The Elder Scrolls Online



Bethesda Softworks have announced a brand new “Imperial Edition” release for The Elder Scrolls Online, which at a higher premium price is set to offer a number of physical and digital goodies as part of what they are describing as a “limited in quantity” release.

At the recommended retail price point of $139.95 AUD / $149.95 NZD, pre-ordering this edition will net you the following items when The Elder Scrolls Online launches on the 4th April 2014:

  • The Game itself obviously.
  • Molag Bal Statue: A 30.5 cm statue featuring Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement.
  • The Improved Emperor’s Guide to Tamriel: A 224-page illustrated guide annotated by the Imperial scholar, Flaccus Terentius (or just the people who produced the guide).
  • Physical Map of Tamriel: A 53.3 cm x 66 cm printed map detailing Alliance-controlled zones and the ultimate conquest: Cyrodiil.
  • Steelbook Packaging: A limited edition steel case decorated in the color of the Imperials.

This release will also feature a set of exclusive digital content. While some of the contents amount to nothing more than mounts or pets, they do intend on including a few more distinct goodies in the Imperial Edition:

  • Play as an Imperial: True to its title, this edition will offer you the opportunity to become an Imperial and play in any Alliance. Gain unique bonuses, crafting styles, gear, and more.
  • White Imperial Horse: Summon this Imperial mount and journey through Tamriel with speed.
  • Mudcrab Vanity Pet: Explore Tamriel with a mudcrab pet scuttling along by your side.
  • Rings of Mara: Complete the Ritual of Mara with a friend and receive an experience bonus when you play together.

While you cannot receive any of the physical contents, at $20 less Bethesda are offering a more readily available digital release of the Imperial Edition which includes the four digital extras mentioned above.
