The Elder Scrolls Online Won't Have Open Beta
If you are waiting for an opportunity to play The Elder Scrolls Online open beta before it formally launches, you may be disappointed. The team has confirmed there will be no traditional open beta phase for the game, though there will be several very large beta sessions prior to final launches which will still require beta keys to access.
