Clear your calendars and ready your passport for a trip to Tamriel. June 9 is right around the corner, marking Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners’ first opportunity to explore the vast, epic, continent-spanning, positively enormous world of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. As a massively multiplayer role-playing game, ESOTU is something of a rare beast on consoles. So for you newcomers and MMO-curious, here are seven things you need to know about the console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.
With just two weeks to go until The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited hits consoles, you can now make your digital pre-order for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
- Xbox One – Pre-Order the Regular Edition / Pre-Order the Digital Collector’s Edition
- PlayStation 4 — Pre-Order the Regular Edition / Pre-Order the Digital Collector’s Edition
Prepare for Your Voyage with the Explorer’s Pack
Tamriel is a huge place, packed with people to meet, places to go – and enemies to slay. Why not get a headstart with the Explorer’s Pack, a special bonus for anyone who pre-orders the game. With the Explorer’s Pack you get the following:
- All races playable in any alliance. Maybe you fancy being an Orc but want to fight alongside the Ebonheart Pact. Or perhaps you want your Nord to join up with the Aldmeri Dominion. In ESOTU, each faction is composed of three unique races. With the Explorer’s pack, you can pick any of the nine total races and align with any of the three factions, giving you even greater freedom to play the game however you like!
- A precious pet. Fondly known as Warty, the Scuttler is a vanity pet you can only get through the Explorer’s Pack. Be the envy of your friends when you show up with this scaly rapscallion scampering around your heels! (Don’t worry, you can change Warty’s name.)
- Treasure maps. Everyone likes loot. Get a leg up with a collection of maps that’ll lead you to hidden chests stuffed with treasure.
Between now and June 9th, stay tuned for new updates on Tamriel Unlimited here on the blog, at ElderScrollsOnline.com, and through the game’s official social media accounts.
