I never buy collector's editions, but this one doesn't look bad.

I've also read that one of the preorder bonuses is the ability to play as any race regardless of faction. Has some of the lore nuts up in arms.

Man Bethesda and Zenimax sure know how to make a trailer...

Also the implications of what happened (like a Nord helping the Altmer, and the Breton being possessed) are always good for storytelling.

Being able to play as a Daedra would have MUCH more enticing than the stupid imperials, the plainest race in all of the games.

Cmon Bethesda I've been waiting for years to be able to play as one without mods, you could even have a unique storyline for the Daedra you play as rebelling and escaping Oblivion, as several Daedra in the storylines of most of the games have anyway to end up helping the 'hero'. ;~;

I'll probably upgrade my pre-order to this in a bit. I pre-ordered TESO a while back, I think, like Fall or something >_>

I assume you mean dremora and if you do that doesn't make any sense. They literally live and breathe a blue and orange morality. And they serve Daedra for a reason.

Some more information was given about the Imperial Edition in today's "Ask Us Anything" feature on the official ESO website:

Do people who order the Imperial Edition gain a big gameplay advantage over those who don’t?

No. With the Imperial Edition you get the opportunity to play as a rogue Imperial who has broken from their Daedra worshipping ways, and you get a unique racial skill line of equal gameplay impact to other races’ unique racial skill lines. As an Imperial you also get a mount and the automatic ability to craft items into the Imperial style. All non-Imperial races can also learn this ability after locating the corresponding racial motif. Imperials do not begin the game in a unique starting location or via a separate quest, but they can start in any alliance as befits their status as un-aligned outcasts of their own Province. Being an Imperial includes a racial skill line that offers unique gameplay opportunities, but there is not an overall gameplay advantage. It is an opportunity to set yourself visually apart in the lands of Tamriel.

Gameplay benefits within this edition have been designed to avoid bestowing unfair advantages over players who do not purchase this special edition. This is cool content designed for some of our biggest fans who wish to have something different from other collector’s editions in the market. The only other alternative would have been to offer a collector’s edition that offers no in-game items whatsoever. That simply didn’t seem fair to fans who are excited about the game and want some special digital items.


Will I get the Imperial Horse on all my characters?

If you purchase the Imperial Edition, all your characters will have access to the Imperial Horse.

What material is the Molag Bal statue made of?

The statue of Molag Bal that comes with the Imperial Edition is made out of high quality resin (ABS.)

Does the Imperial Horse have better stats than other horses in the game?

No. The Imperial Horse that allows you to "travel with speed through Tamriel" travels at the same speed as other horses found within the game. Its stats are identical to the stats of other horses in the game, too.

If I buy the Imperial Edition and make an Imperial character, can I switch alliances whenever I want?

As an Imperial character, you can choose any of the three alliances to pledge your allegiance to. Once created, this character will be dedicated to that alliance—you cannot switch.




It would've been really nice if the statue was made out of metal, haha.

I think ill just wait until all this "Exclusive" shit is only a $10 add on and save the extra $40 for the ELDER SCROLLS IMPERIAL EDITION...and in regards to the other stuff: I can just discover tamriel on my own, i could really care less about a guide book, i dont really care what the case of my game is made of as long as the game itself is good and i couldnt give 2 shits less about some tiny little statue of some douchebag Daedric Prince voiced by the same guy who voiced the Douchebag Enclave president...

I think the only let downs are the pets. Mudcrap is a $hit offering who will walk around with a mudcrap following them? and mudcrabs are so damn common anyway. Should have been a choice of real world animals.

Mudcrabs are pathetic, but I thought that was the whole point. You know, sort of like a joke, considering how much fun was made of them in Oblivion:
