Product Description

Platform: PC Download | Edition: Imperial

The Elder Scrolls Online is the latest chapter of the award-winning franchise – and will bring the legendary experience online for the first time. Whether you play with your friends or adventure alone, the game’s innovative combat system allows you to focus on action and tactics, not the UI. Use any weapon or armor at any time and customize your abilities to play the way you want as you uncover the mysteries of Tamriel and seek heroic quests on your own terms. Explore the far reaches of Skyrim, the mysterious lands of Morrowind, the sprawling metropolis of Daggerfall and beyond. The choices you make, from the alliance you join to the battles you fight, will shape your destiny and the world of Tamriel.

The Elder Scrolls Online is set roughly 1,000 years before the events in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and the coming of the Dragonborn, and just before the rise of Tiber Septim, the first Emperor of Tamriel. Three Alliances have emerged across the continent, each struggling for supremacy over the land. As these great powers battle one another for control of the Imperial City – and with it all of Tamriel – darker forces are moving to destroy the world.


  • The Elder Scrolls. Online.
    After 20 years of best-selling, award-winning fantasy role-playing games, the Elder Scrolls series goes online. Experience this epic adventure on your own or together with your friends, guild mates, and thousands of alliance members. Explore dangerous caves and dungeons, embark upon adventurous quests across Tamriel, and engage in massive player versus player battles, where the victors reap the spoils of war.
  • Play the Way You Like
    With an enhanced Elder Scrolls combat system, engage in real-time targeting and strategic attacks and blocks. Use any weapon or wear any armor at any time, no matter what type of character you play and develop your own style with deep character customization and abilities.
  • A Connected Game World
    With ESO’s Megaserver technology you no longer choose a server, but instead play in one connected world. The game automatically places you with friends, guild mates, people you’ve encountered before, and other like-minded players. Simply jump in and begin your adventure.
  • Your Quest to Save Tamriel
    A stolen soul. An undead army rising. A quest to recover that which is uniquely yours. Explore the hidden secrets of Tamriel at your own pace using the game’s compass to guide you to areas of interest. Save the world from the evil machinations of the Daedric Prince Molag Bal and his henchman, the first necromancer, the Prince of Worms, Mannimarco.

Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Imperial
Let me start off this review by saying that I LOVE, LOOOOVE TES games. I loved them ever since I first played Daggerfall (before all the patches that made it playable), and played Arena shortly after I finally finished Daggerfall. I have been following TES very closely from that time on. Heck, I even liked Redguard, and everyone I know tells me that game is terrible.

So I was extremely excited and ordered the Imperial Edition from GMG as soon as I found a 20% off code (I had to buy two copies, so I did not want to shell out that much for an MMO with a monthly subscription fee).

I have been playing this game for a while now (remember Imperial Edition gets a nice head start option), so I think I can finally give a decent and most importantly spoiler free review of this game.

Early access actually started off pretty well. The character creation is great, and both my wife and I were able to create the avatars we wanted. We also quickly jumped into a friends guild - and that is where our first surprise came... EVERYONE in TESO can SEE your ACTUAL account name. In fact adding a "friend" to your list, gives you their actual account name.

My account names are always weird and have nothing to do with my real name, but my wife usually uses a combination of her first, and last name. Meaning everyone and their grandmothers knew they were playing with a female. This lead to a lot of people (even those from our guild), that would start asking her where she lives, her age, and if she was hot, etc.

In fact a lot of "friends" that we met in TESO had their names and year of birth as their account name, since they were not warned that this name will be so freely and publicly available. Heck, some people even had their state in there!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good potential April 11, 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Imperial|Verified Purchase
This is a review of the physical Imperial Edition of the game. I'm hoping to hit as many points as possible, answering the questions I typically ask for myself before wading into a new game. Like any MMO review this will only be applicable for a short while, as games evolve and change. No online game really hits its stride until its first major expansion.

*Imperial Edition Content*

The physical content of the Imperial Edition is decent.

When the box arrived, I was impressed with the size. The unboxing process is a lot of fun, just watch the official unboxing video to see what I mean. There's a lot of content very well packaged.

I mainly ordered the Imperial Edition for the Improved Emperor's Guide to Tamriel, and the book is a pleasure to read through. The pictures and story are high quality and the book feels solid and substantial to hold and read. I'll be spending quite a bit of time pouring through it in the weeks to come.

The Molag Bal Statue is plastic, so take it for what it's worth. Assembling it wasn't difficult, and while it's not the sturdiest statue ever made, it held together well. Personally, I don't think I'd want to display a foot tall Daedric Prince in my home. I just don't think it's a pretty statue and I don't want to explain to guests why I have a lizard-devil-demon on the shelf. For what it is however, it's well designed. I liked the Skyrim sculpt much more, but again that's personal preference.

The map I found to be an inexcusable failure. It's a poster print of Tamriel, with only the major nations' names scribbled across their general location. It's of no use for locating anything, it's not attractive enough to display and it adds nothing to the Elder Scrolls Lore.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. April 16, 2014
By BeccaM
Platform for Display:PC Download|Edition:Imperial
Like most ambitious MMOs, Elder Scrolls Online has its share of initial launch problems -- and then some. Players reporting update patching problems. Lag. Advancement breaking bugs. Dungeons and quest-lines that can't be completed. It happens.

To focus on the positive: Some of the scenery is quite beautiful and in keeping with the Elder Scrolls milieu. It's also nice to see names and places mentioned from the overall mythos. In my opinion, the voice acting for some of the NPCs is also quite good, a step up from most other games. I'd also say that the crafting system in general is good and well thought out, and allows players to make gear that's at least as good as the drops from mobs and from mission rewards. It's also an interesting choice they made, to limit auction houses (AH) to only within individual guilds -- I can see the benefit in reducing certain types of economic griefing and exploitation, plus in recent years, in-game AH's have been the target point for cheating and item duplicating (duping). But it does make things rather inconvenient for starting players who simply want to buy or sell something.

On top of all this, the story lore is deep and extensive. There's almost too much to read and keep track of.

It's also nice that right from the start, they supported player created add-ons, which can allow you to modify your game UI or to make certain functions easier -- such as adding the mini-map most players expect but which Bethesda / Zenimax decided not to include in their default interface. (Dumb decision, in my opinion. I'm also not crazy about having only five skills at a time + one 'ultimate' ability. This gets a little better once you hit level 15 and can swap between weapons and skill sets, but it's still barely enough.
