We're happy to announce to all you Curse fans out there a new partnership with ZeniMax Online Studios to support their next closed beta* event for The Elder Scrolls Online! Together we're bringing the community a whopping 500,000 beta keys, and are especially jazzed to offer them to Premium members first. That's right -- you guys are the pillars of the Curse community, and we'd be nowhere without your support. Therefore, Premium members will get access to the pool of keys a full two days before everyone else:
Premium Only: February 4th - 5th, 2014
All Curse Members: February 6th - 10th, 2014
If you haven't looked into the game yet, you're in for a real treat! The Elder Scrolls Online is a much more social continuation of the beloved and richly fabricated universe which holds the continent of Tamriel and all the difficulties that arise in it.
The game is set a millenium prior to the events of Skyrim, with the Daedric Prince Molag Bal appearing as the main antagonist as he attempts to conquer all of Tamriel. Players are able to explore most of the continent, and join one of three alliances warring over the throne of the Emperor of Tamriel:
- The Aldmeri Dominion, composed of Altmer, Bosmer and Khajiit (represented by a bird of prey)
- The Daggerfall Covenant, composed of Bretons, Redguards and Orcs (represented by a lion)
- The Ebonheart Pact, composed of Dunmer, Nords and Argonians (represented by a dragon).
Additionally, massive PvP battles allow you to fight for your alliance in heart-pumping battles against enemy armies of hundreds across the battlefields of Cyrodiil. How will your Elder Scrolls legacy play out online?
Head to the official TESO site for more details on the game and to check out the perk-filled pre-purchase options, and be sure to check out our TESO Wiki for all known information on the races, places, and faces of Tamriel!
