Check your emails for beta invites!

#1 Edited by Demoskinos (13853 posts) -

So awhile ago I signed up for the beta for Elder Scrolls Online. Apparently they are starting to send out emails regarding the first beta testing phase which apparently last from Nov 22nd -24th.

I do believe this beta test is NDA'ed so you aren't really allowed to talk about it BUT just posting this as a PSA for anyone who signed up months ago for this to check your emails and grab your elder scrolls name now before it gets taken!

I'm in the process of creating my account right now. I'll be interested to check this thing out!

Just got an invite and made an acc. Honestly figured I'd have no shot but signed up a while ago just for shits and giggles. Looks like it worked out after all. I didn't read the NDA too closely so I won't say anymore just to be on the safe side. I will say that I'm looking forward to checking it out tho

Got my fingers crossed. I haven't beta tested an MMO in a few years. It's fun seeing them so broken and getting to hang out with the devs and shoot the shit when you get in early enough. Even got them to make some tiny changes when I got in early enough on a couple.

I got my invite, but my adequate computer is out of commission and I likely won't replace it before the 22nd. Timing, you cruel bitch.

I've never played an MMO so this seems like the right time to jump in given how much Skyrim I played.

I didn't enjoy the last beta very much. But it was only a few hours. Maybe a whole weekend will change my mind.

I got mine as well, but why'd it have to be this weekend with the Xbone launch :(

Downloading now! Hoping to be pleasantly surprised, as my excitement for this one has severely dwindled. But it's always cool to see a game in semi-early stages and maybe even help crush a bug or two.

Just got mine. Luckily I'm not getting an Xbox One so I'll be able to devote some time to it this weekend. I'd be willing to party up with anyone looking to do so. I've never cared for MMOs, but I do love me some Elder Scrolls, interested to see how this turns out.

I don't even remember signing up for this, but I'll give it a shot.

Ahhh, the good ol' days of actual beta's. This should be fun! See you guys in the game!

Ugh, I played the previous beta, and the game was utter shit. I don't think it'll have changed much since. They should probably make a decent Elder Scrolls game before doing a MMO.

@lyisa:

same here, gonna be out of town and super busy so I won't be able to access the beta for this wave, it's nice to be selected though. I can't remember how long ago I signed up for ESO beta, it was probably a day or two after the beta sign up page went live.

Sadly, I won't be getting one. Their application site was bugging out pretty bad for me when it went up, and I was unable to successfully sign up.

Has anyone gotten a beta invite for anything besides PC?

not sure how it all works, but I redeemed that key I got back during thanksgiving stress test and it accepted it now for the current wave, at least it appears to, it activated the account and is letting me dl client, so if you are wanting to play see if you can register using that old beta key.
