The April release of The Elder Scrolls Online is getting nearer, and Bethesda's Tamriel-based MMO is beginning to take on its final form. The publisher today announced that The Elder Scrolls Online will, unsurprisingly, get a collector's edition.
The Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition is packed with all the physical and digital add-ons MMO fans are used to in collector's editions. The package comes with a foot-tall statue of Molag Bal, a Daedric Prince and the first major villain of The Elder Scrolls Online. In addition to the statue centerpiece, players will get an illustrated 224-page "The Improved Emperor's Guide to Tamriel" book, a 21" x 26" map of Tamriel, and a steelbook case for the game disc itself.
The physical items will be supplemented with several in-game bonuses, including a White Imperial Horse mount, a Mudcrab pet, and rings of Mara, which can increase experience gain when used between players. Players who purchase the Imperial Edition will also get the opportunity to play as an Imperial in any in-game faction they choose.
The Elder Scrolls Online Imperial Edition is already available for pre-order through the new Elder Scrolls Online store and other retailers. The collector's edition is selling for $100, but a digital version of the package containing only the in-game items can also be purchased for $80.
