The Elder Scrolls Online Hits 25% Off Pre-Order This Weekend

Update 6/20: ESO is now live and launched! The best discounts available for Elder Scrolls Online found here.

Lots of deals this weekend, including the ever news generating Elder Scrolls Online. If you didn’t keep up with the news, here’s the gist: details on Imperial Edition was announced earlier in the week and turns out the Imperial race is exclusive to the more expensive Imperial Edition. *Dun dun dun* Obviously this got people raising their eyebrows (or whatever, I’m not the keeper of eyebrows). ZeniMax even specifically addressed Imperial Edition’s lack of “advantages” in their latest “Ask Us Anything.” You can make up your own mind on if Imperial being exclusive race is a shoddy move or not.


On the flip side of things, Elder Scrolls Online pre-order is now discounted at 25% (update: now 20% off) through this weekend at GMG, this includes the aforementioned Imperial Edition, down to $64 USD or £55.99 (don’t bother with doing currency math, you know the answer already). Standard Edition is down to $48 USD or £39.99 (use voucher code FUSWJT-B1DU64-JBV8UY).


For other game deals this weekend, there’s lots of Early Access Indie games available at Gamefly on sale. Talk about another sore point. When did buying alpha games become a thing? Then again these purchasing method (crowd funding, early access etc.) also made  games such as Kerbal Space Program a reality so maybe its not all bad.
