If you’re an Elder Scrolls fan, chances are great that you’re not even reading what I’m saying here. Rather, you’re eagerly fishing for that orange URL that will bring you straight to the beta sign-up page. And who could blame you? Bethesda has been crafting some of the best RPG games over the past decade, with each proving to be incredibly vast, very immersive and oh-so-satisfying. Who wouldn’t want to take all of that and then be able to experience it with friends online?
In the remote chance that someone’s made the mistake of continuing reading, I’ll explain the sign-up process a bit. Unlike most, which just ask a couple of boring questions, Bethesda’s will take a couple of moments to fill out. It’s clear that the company is interested in not only bringing people into the beta that want to play it, but those who will actually beta test and provide feedback.
The company’s also looking for people who are serious about their RPGs, even going as far as to request a guild site URL and name in case you happen to have one. The sign-up also asks questions about your previous MMO experience and your preferred playstyle. Given the number of MMOs that have fallen flat over the past couple of years, it’s good to see Bethesda asking such questions.
