The Elder Scrolls Online is set to launch sometime this year, and there are some players who understandably skeptical that the game can satisfy series fans. Just the same, there are some players who think that the this is finally the multiplayer game so many Elder Scrolls fans have been asking about for years. Regardless of which camp you fall in - skeptic or believer - ZeniMax Online Studios has issued a call for for beta testers, so you can net a chance to test out a pre-release build of the game.
The beta is of the closed variety, which means that you'll need to sign a non-disclosure agreement to participate. There isn't any word on when the beta will officially kick off, which means that it might be a little while before players find out if they were accepted. While you won't know if you got in right away, there is a little sidebar that pops up on the side of the application that gives you an idea of your chances of being accepted as you fill in information. You probably shouldn't take that assessment as truth, but it's a nice feature to have anyway.
Today also saw the release of a new cinematic trailer for the Elder Scrolls Online, this one coming in at nearly six minutes long. Being a cinematic, the trailer naturally doesn't show any gameplay, but instead a massive battle scene. The battle is certainly impressive, but at this point, we have a feeling that fans are craving more gameplay footage. In any case, have a look at the latest Elder Scrolls Online trailer below.
If you're interested in signing up for the closed beta, you can head over to the Elder Scrolls Online official site to do so. Keep in mind that there are a lot of people looking to sign up, so you may not be able to submit your application right away. Did any of sign up for the Elder Scrolls Online beta today?
