This weekend’s Elder Scrolls Online beta event unveils the Imperial race

The Elder Scrolls Online beta weekend unveils Imperials

The Elder Scrolls Online is gearing up for another beta weekend, kicking off on Friday, March 14th at 5PM GMT, running until Monday, March 17th at 3:59AM GMT. 

This weekend is going to be a bit different from the last couple, however, as ZeniMax is unlocking the Imperial Edition and Explorer Pack for all beta testers. This means you’ll be able to play as those boring old Imperials or any race in any alliance, so your Redguard can start in Skyrim, for instance. 

I got my fill of The Elder Scrolls Online during the last beta weekend, and the opportunity to play as a dreary Imperial isn’t particularly enticing. If you are eager to check it out, though, I advise you to start downloading the client now, as it’s bloody massive.

If you’ve been in any of the other beta events, you will automatically be eligible for this one.

Take a gander at what Nick, Jeremy and Jules thought of the game when they went on holiday to Tamriel during the first weekend.
