    I got three codes from Green Man Gaming: Explorer Pack, Game, and Early Access today. The early access code didn't work, came back invalid. Not sure why they sent it on release day.

    Thats incorrect. I prepurchased from GMG and got my 5 day early access. After i purchased i was given a serial, i redeemed it on my ESO account page and it gave me Early Access. Now you use the two other codes to get the FULL GAME added and the Explorers Pack.




    Thank you for pre-ordering The Elder Scrolls® Online: Imperial Edition. The official launch has finally come and we are pleased to send you your unique activation codes later today!

    You will receive three codes:

    • 1 x EARLY ACCESS code

    • 1 x MAIN GAME code

    • 1 x EXPLORER’S PACK code

    Please note: You will have previously received, and may have already used, your Early Access code.

    To activate the codes, please follow these steps:

    1. Visit

    2. Log into your Elder Scrolls Online Account, or create one if needed

    3. Select Redeem Code on the My Account page

    4. Enter your game activation and Explorer’s Pack codes

    If you have already used your Early Access code, this will return an error: ‘invalid code’. You can safely ignore this error message.

    You will not be able to redeem the Main Game and Explorer’s pack codes until 00:01 GMT, April 4th when the game launches.

    Ok I somehow had to punch in the code 5-6 times, then it worked. I assume the website is being pounded atm.

    I bought via GMG as well (that 25% off initial offer was great !) and received the email explaining how the 3 codes worked, followed by the actual mail with the 3 codes.

    Entered the 2nd and 3rd codes and everything worked perfectly. Then I tried the 1st code (early access) just in case, and as the explanation email had warned, the "code invalid" error appeared, because I had already entered the early access code to get the Early Access play time.


    So everything worked exactly as they said it would.

    Nothing to worry about as you have until Sunday to enter it now. I'm actually going to wait to ensure I get my 2 extra days ;)
