Bethesda and ZeniMax have revealed two bits of Elder Scrolls goodness today. First, they have officially announced today that fans who would like to register for The Elder Scrolls Online beta can do so as signups are now available at ElderScrollsOnline.com. The details of timing and the start of playtests will be given later to those who register.
The second bit of news goes hand in hand with the beta announcement and comes in the form of a new trailer – ‘The Alliances Cinematic Trailer’. The trailer shows three alliances – the Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, and Ebonheart Pact – who are battling for control of The Imperial City.

The Elder Scrolls Online brings the award-winning Elder Scrolls experience online for the first time. Using ZeniMax Online’s Megaserver technology, players will join one connected world with a built in social network that lets them stay up-to-date with everything their friends are doing. Megaserver technology avoids the hassle of shard selection and makes The Elder Scrolls Online one of the most socially enabled games ever created. Whether playing alone, or with hundreds of friends, players can develop their own style of play as they embark upon an epic quest across Tamriel.
The Elder Scrolls Online is slated for release in 2013 and is being developed for the PC and the Mac.
