Hey guys, there may or may not already be a topic about this but I'm going to put it here anyway.

The developers at Zenimax Online Studios said that there would be an Open Beta a few months before release. And, if I'm not mistaken, the release date was confirmed to be the 4th of April 2014. When do you guys expect the Open Beta? Do you think there'll be one?

It will probably be a couple weeks before the games release. Mid-Late March.


Do you mind? I'm busy doing the fishstick. It's a very delicate state of mind!

They will definitely have an open beta. And the reason for this is very simple, because the guys over at Zenimax studios knows the hype this game currently has. The facebook group for The Elder Scrolls Online currently have over 1.2 million members. This number does not necessary mean that much, but there are at least a huge amount of gamers that are not part of this group that will buy the game.

The question is will Zenimax release the next installment in the TES series to potenially millions of households without a proper stress test? Well of course not. They will have at least one open beta that really gives the servers and the Megaserver technology a run for its money. I'm sure of it.

I am gonna say not at all cause personally I think if they did they would find a lot of back lash and it would back fire on them making them either have alienate a group of people because they were disappointed with the open beta or they would have to push the game back change features and promise to address the issues which is highly unlikely. So for me I am guessing with all the back lash about subscriptions a lot of the back lash about other features they are just gonna keep making the closed beta larger keep silent basically hand out minimal information and then release hoping that the surprise and hype pull people in.

Its more than likely going to be March time to see what effect stress testing high volume log in will have prior to launch. Theres no way they will release without an open beta.

Normally 1-4 weeks before 4-4-14

And Stress test add a week before 4-4-14

In other games I've played the open beta happened a month before go live.
I expect it'll be the same here, and it was about right.
But I got a Beta Key yesterday...ooooooooooooooooooooooo baby
