ESO Preorders; Imperial Edition Confirmed; Opening Cinematic

Preorders of The Elder Scrolls Online are now being accepted on the official website for Bethesda Softworks' upcoming MMORPG through the newly launched Elder Scrolls Online Official Store. There are both physical and digital editions, and each of these is available as an "Imperial Edition," and the physical/retail Imperial Edition indeed contains the bonuses revealed earlier via a leak. There are also pre-order bonuses to be had, including early access for Windows and OS X players, listed as five days for all of the SKUs except the standard retail version, which for some reason comes with only a three day headstart. For bargain hunters who are interested in this, Dealzon has a coupon for 12 bucks off when buying from Green Man Gaming. Here's the just-released opening cinematic from the game, and here are the bonuses that come with all preorders:

  • The characters you create can join any alliance, no matter which race you choose
  • The Scuttler, a tiny but loyal vanity pet
  • A bundle of four bonus treasure maps

It's about sworn enenies putting away their differences for the greater good, and join up to fight a threat that may aswell destroy Nirn. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." You know? The line you hear in every game and movie these days.

If you mean by "no sense at all" the fact that they really shouldn't spend millions on this shit but rather put that cash in a game that needs a hell-of-a-lot of improvement ESPECIALLY in the combat, then I can only agree with you wholeheartedly.
Okay. But here's the thing, no where does it imply that they're enemies. Parts of different factions, or anything else. They're simply people fighting. Fighting about what? Who knows. But they're fighting each other, then some other people, and we don't know who they are either except they appeared through a metal skyring. It's not exactly a great cinematic to open with because it provides nothing to those who are new to the game. No information, background, story, etc.

So, at that point it's still a case of "it makes no sense at all." As for the rest, well they probably should have hired blizzard to make their cinematic. :p

To be fair, if you took the narration out of opening cinematics to the WoW MMO and it's expansions, it's pretty much just a bunch of people fighting for no apparent reason too.
