The title of the thread pretty much covers it all...

 

Oh, and is the beta worth? (almost forgot the most important one, heh)

I don't think so but you will likely get a beta invite to the next one if you pre-purchase on their site.  

I'm not huge into Beta's anymore.  They can really take the wind out of launch day if you overplay them especially for a theme park game.  I would rather wait until launch day and not have all the mystery of the game already solved.  I guess with lower level restrictions, long leveling time, multiple starting areas, and short beta time frame it might not be that bad but still I'm not that interested in playing before launch.

Beta access comes with preorder but im not sure if you can still get into current one.

Curse.com still has beta keys for this weekend I believe, get over there and get one.

thanks for the reply. I think I will pass it, I am not fond either of beta, for the reasons given above, but as I love Elder Scrolls I was almost hitting the buy button on instinct just to try to see the world of ESO (even if in beta).

 

Almost same thing happened with the new Sim City (not in beta, but in gold), but I overcame the urge of  buying it...

As for worth...beta gives you a chance to test the game's feel (controls, graphics, sounds, movement, etc) before paying.   Yeah it is worth it...end game and such is up in the air, but the general feel of is it fun for me to play is answered.

Just remember they REALLY mean beta, so they may restart the servers while playing from time to time to make actual changes even during the beta weekend.

Only if you get it from the main site? Only asking because I got the Imp version and registered my code unto my account etc., and got no beta invite. (bought from Game UK ltd. - reg. code worked fine also). :(

No trials. No tricks. No traps. No EU-RP server. NO THANKS!

Prepurchasing does not get you into beta.. unless they changed it in the last day.
