Bethesda Softworks and ZeniMax Online Studios today announced that beta signups are now open for The Elder Scrolls Online at ElderScrollsOnline.com. Interested gamers simply have to go to the website and register for a chance to play. Selected beta registrants will be granted early access to beta test the game. They will be among the first to experience this epic world with others in one of 2013’s most highly-anticipated releases. Timing and details of the start of playtests will be provided at a later date to those who register.
ESO has been still widely under wraps and could face some backlash for the decision to not offer full real-time combat as the series is known for. I am still interested by this design choice myself, as the game offered FPS type gameplay which seems easier to implement then a standard MMO gameplay.
