Bethesda and ZeniMax yesterday announced the premium collector’s edition of their highly-anticipated upcoming MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online.
Bearing the somewhat unwieldy title of; The Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition, the physical collector’s edition will be available in “extremely limited” numbers.
Enthusiastic Elder Scrolls fans can get their hands on a 30.5 cm Molag Bal statue, a 224-page illustrated guide to Tamriel, a 53.3 cm x 66 cm map of the world, and a limited edition steel case to keep your goodies safe.
While only buyers of the physical edition will receive these toys, Bethesda hasn’t forgotten about the geographically-frustrated gamers out there. A digital collector’s edition will also be available, bestowing upon gamers in-game perks such as the ability to summon a white Imperial horse for quick travel, and having a ‘mudcrab vanity pet’ scuttling along in your footsteps.
You will also be able to play as an Imperial, join any alliance, gain unique bonuses, gear, and even crafting styles if you purchase the digital collector’s edition.
The Physical Imperial Edition is available for pre-order for $99.99 (and includes all digital content to boot), and the Digital Imperial Edition is going for $79.99.
Additionally, all those who pre-order either of the collector’s versions will receive a bonus content pack at launch which includes four bonus treasure maps, a scuttler vanity pet, and the ability to play as any one of the nine races.
Pre-order customers will also receive five day early access to the game when it releases on PC and Mac on April 4, 2014.
