Posted Tue, Mar 25, 2014 by Martuk

The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO) will begin its staged early access this Sunday for the upcoming April 4th launch. Players with the 5-day early access option can start playing bright and early Sunday morning at 7AM ET. Players with the 3-day early access can join in Tuesday, April 1st at 7AM ET with the official launch opening up a bit early on Thursday, April 3rd at 7PM ET. Zenimax has posted an early access and launch FAQ with all the pertinent details along with some useful tips to make sure that you’re ready to log in and start playing when early access begins.

Q: Do I need to delete the beta client and download a new client for launch?

A: No, you do not need to delete your beta client or perform a new download and reinstall. If you have the live beta client, you can simply patch it up to the launch build starting on Thursday the 27th of March. We encourage you to patch up to the launch build early so you’re ready to go for Early Access or launch day!

The FAQ also includes details on how you can collect any digital bonus items.

Q: How will I receive my Imperial Edition in-game items?

A: The Imperial White Horse is purchasable for 1 gold from any stable in the game, as soon as you start the game. The Mudcrab Vanity Pet will be in your in-game mailbox starting from launch on 4.4.14. The Ritual of Mara will be in your in-game mail as soon as you start the game—simply perform the ritual with your desired partner to get the Rings of Mara.
