One thing money certainly can buy is epic cinematic trailers, such as "The Arrival" for Elder Scrolls Online. Zenimax Online Studios certainly pulled out all the stops for this one. Continuing off where the previous cinematic announcement trailer left off, Daedric Prince Molag Bal interrupts the ongoing fight between the three factions of Elder Scrolls Online. Let's just say our three heroes come out of the fight a little worse for wear.
In addition to the release of the cinematic trailer, The Elder Scrolls Online's big collector's edition has also been unveiled. Introducing the Imperial Edition, which features its own version of the arrival of Molag Bal -- in statue form. Yes, the edition features one giant statue of the villain of the MMO and plenty more too. Here's a couple lists of what comes in the box:
Imperial Edition Physical Content
