Elder Scrolls Online’s Morrowind closed beta test has begun

Get your “It’s happening!!!” gifs ready: ZeniMax announced this morning that the invites for The Elder Scrolls Online’s Morrowind beta are riding out on carrier pigeon today. When I tried to type “morning” just now, I typed “Morrowind” instead, complete with capitalization, if that tells you anything about the hype-o-meter for the expansion as we roll along toward June.

“This time we’re doing things a bit differently, and we will be holding a closed beta for ESO: Morrowind,” the studio told fans earlier this month. “While everyone will be able to help test the base game content on the PTS, any content included in ESO: Morrowind will be invite-only. In addition, everyone logging onto the PTS will be required to agree to a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) upon login.” Likewise, “participation in previous PTS cycles is a major factor” in whether you’re invited.

So hey, you probably won’t get in, but people who will leak everything on day one will because life is cruel and unfair that way. Not that there’s probably much left to leak, given how much the studio has put out already! Go sit by your inboxes and start refreshing for your invites.

Ugh. Previous PTS cycles? When your team decided that not addressing my complaint that my PTS was broken was the best action? Thanks, way to help make me find more reason to want to avoid you.

I like the game somewhat, all in all. The customer service, the issues with certain hardware configurations, the lack of bug fixing… basically all the things other than the gameplay keep driving me away. :(

Never understood why people like to do betas for mmo expansion packs. One of the biggest complaints from mmorpg players is how the content runs out too quickly. Wouldnt playing in a beta only expedite this process?

Yea but think about it, this way they start complaining far earlier, like launch day if all goes well.

That’s certainly why I don’t participate in them. You get all the bugs, and by the time the (more) polished version launches it’s all feeling “been there done that”.

Usually the only time I’ll play briefly in one is if there’s a new feature I’m particularly excited about, for example a big improvement to graphics, or a cool new crafting system. Once I’ve taken a focused look at whatever that may be I then shelve it until official launch.

The best reason is you actually want to test and improve things. Sadly, many people use it to ‘play and get ahead.’ Those people end up exactly where you noted.

Anyone just look at the picture at the top of the article and think Chaos Space Marine?
