Bethesda has officially announced the Imperial Edition for The Elder Scrolls Online.

Bethesda has yet to officially announce a collector’s edition for The Elder Scrolls Online but a user on the Amazon video games forum spotted a very peculiar image attached to the Dishonored GOTY store listing. The image shows a collector’s edition called Imperial Edition for the highly anticipated MMO, The Elder Scrolls Online. This was obviously a mistake and the photos have now been taken down but the image appears real enough.
The image features the following content for the Imperial Edition of The Elder Scrolls Online:
- Physical Content
- Collector’s Edition Box
- Steelbook Packaging
- Molag Bal Statue – A collectible 12″ statue featuring Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement
- Map of Tamriel – A printed map detailing alliance-controlled zones and the ultimate conquest: Cyrodiil
- Emperor’s Guide to Tamriel – A 224-page illustrated guide annotated by the Imperial scholar, Flaccus Terentius
- Digital Content
- Play as an Imperial for any alliance – Appears to be the only way to play as an imperial
- White Imperial Horse
- Mudcrab vanity Pet
- Rings of Mara
No word on price, platforms or regions.
