Preorders of The Elder Scrolls Online are now being accepted on
the official website for
Bethesda Softworks' upcoming MMORPG through the
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
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

Yeah neither do I. Usually intro cinematics exist to give you an idea of what's going on, happening, why, etc. And all I got from that is: "People are fighting each other, some other people, and then some more fighting..." But no reason why, no intro information or anything else.
Thats because you dont know of the lore and settings, There are 3 factions fighting for the throne of Cyrodill, (the fighting in the beggining) then comes Molag Bal, he wants to drag Tamriel to Coldharbour (hence the anchors)
PS: you dont see Molag Bal in the trailer.
That's true, I don't. Which is why they should have spelled it out for me.
I played Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim and I barely know 1/10th of what the hell the lore is about. Most of its in books you find. And yeah, I guess that is my bad, I should read into it more.
What I was mainly pointing out though as that many of these MMO trailers are not actually cinematic and immersive inside the box.
