Elder Scrolls Online & Imperial Edition Now Available for 20% Off

Update 6/20: TESO is now live! The best discounts on the Elder Scrolls Online here.

Launching in just a few months, Elder Scrolls Online is either going to revive subscription-based MMORPGs, or it’s going to flop really, really hard. As a fan of the Elder Scrolls series (since the generated world in Daggerfall), I’m not sure how I feel about ESO thus far. One thing that’s a bit wack is in order to play as the Imperial race, the only way thus far is to buy the just-announced Imperial Edition for extra $$$. What? Where do I grab my pitchfork?


In either case, pre-orders for both the Standard Edition of Elder Scrolls Online and Imperial Edition is now available, and if you’re a much more hardcore fan than I am, there’s a 20% discount thrown in the mix to entice you.

End Game Title MSRP % Off Sale Price
Jun 2 Elder Scrolls Online Standard Edition $59.99 33% $40.10 
Jun 2 Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition $79.99 33% $53.59


Both editions come with a number of pre-order bonuses and of course include 30 days of game time. Strangely, early access head start is only 3 days for Standard Edition (April 1st), whereas the Imperial Edition gets a 5 day early access head start (March 30th). Meh? Full details of the pre-order bonuses are listed below. 


Standard Edition of Elder Scrolls Online


  • 3 Day Early Access (4/1/14)
  • Explorer Pack – Pick any race and play in any alliance (except Imperial)
  • Scuttler Vanity Pet – Some kind of lizard/dinosaur-ish creature, I think.


Elder Scrolls Online Digital Imperial Edition


  • Everything Above + 5 Day Early Access (3/30/14)
  • The Imperial DLC – Ability to play as an Imperial
  • Imperial White Horse – Why use other mounts when you’re an Imperial?
  • Crafting/Transforming Imperial Gears – ‘Nuff said.
  • Rings of Mara – Some type of quest that lets you get bonus XP when playing with friends (assuming it’s a method to power level with friends)
  • Mudcrab Vanity Pet – Yep! Mudcrabs.


In other PC game deal news that isn’t Elder Scroll related, GameFly has a “Ubisoft Hits Sale” on select PC download titles. While it’s only a total of five titles developed by Ubisoft, this does make Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag lowest ever by $7.50 after an instant savings drop of 50% followed up by a 25% off coupon code. Check the sales out below:
