Gamers who preorder The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will have the option of playing as any race/alliance combination, publisher Bethesda Softworks announced on Tuesday. Those who do not preorder will be limited to selecting one of the races associated with their chosen alliance.
The game has three alliances: Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, and Ebonheart Pact. Each alliance is composed of members from three Elder Scrolls races. Because gamers may only play cooperatively with members of the same alliance, having the preorder bonus means not being forced to sacrifice playing as your favorite race to fight through Tamriel with your friends. You will still have to agree on an alliance, however.
The bonus is part of the exclusive Explorer’s Pack, which also includes a Scuttler vanity pet and a collection of treasure maps, and is available for preorders of both physical and digital copies. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is available June 9th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
