The Elder Scrolls Online Beta Invites Go Out This Month

Bethesda has announced that gamers who signed up for the Elder Scrolls Online beta will be invited to the test at some time later this month. The game‘s first “friends and family” test ran on February 28. The window for the beta signups is about to close, so be sure to sign up while you still have the chance to do so.

To that end, Bethesda has set up a helpful FAQ to answer commonly asked questions and describe what participants will be doing for the Beta.

According to the studio, the game’s beta will at first consist of a host of events staged on weekends. Each test will have a small window of access and players will receive their invitations in advance to make time to participate. As the game’s development approaches its launch, the studio will stage these events more frequently and for longer stretches of time.

Testers will be selected based on a number of criteria, including their preference for certain types of content, all of which can be selected on the signup form.

If you’re selected, they’ll send you an e-mail.

After GW2′s weekend only tests I thought MMO devs would have learned that it’s a bad idea. Players need more time to find the bugs and exploits. With brief testing periods everyone is focusing on having fun, not testing. GW2 was littered with game breaking bugs and exploits for weeks after launch because of lack of testing affecting infrastructure services, trading post, and game play.
