Update: Not getting any confirmation after applying for the beta? Be sure to check your spam folder! It has been reported to end up there quite a lot.
Great news! The beta sign-up for The Elder Scrolls Online started today!
Be among the first to set foot in the massive world of Elder Scrolls Online! The Beta will begin soon, so be quick about signing up!
Now, remember everyone; this is not meant to be for you to just play the game before launch - this is a beta, and as such, you should not be playing the game just to have fun - you should be TESTING the game, and reporting your findings to ZeniMax Online Studios. If this is not your intent, don't sign up.
But enough of that, to celebrate this, Bethesda Softworks released a Cinematic!
I must say, this was a very well done Cinematic, and I really enjoyed it. Hope you do as well!
