    No, you pay to play it *in any alliance*.

    I love how people overreact to information.

    You still locked to a faction... it is not like imperials can play in each faction freely. You still have to pick a faction. 

    People are just looking for reason to protest ESO, and Zenimax just keep providing them ammo. This is not a big deal, but every chink in the armor just feeds the trolls.

    taking a guess -- the CE imperial is probably an "early access" race

    Got it.  Every day of our life is to be spent with a picket sign outside of every company building when they say they will be updating/releasing something.  Even though online boycotts don't work for crap and "shitty changes" are subjective from person to person.

    Or the fact that if a company is greedy, it is because they are greedy.  Not because of "sheep."

    He may make you sick, but you just make people feel pity.

    Access to a race because you paid extra for it is not the way to build a business. I can see significant  blow back.

    At IGN they are saying you not only get the Imperial race but  a white imperial mount.

    Here is what they have to say.

    "The image has since been taken down, but its contents are clear. The Imperial Edition includes a 12-inch statue of the Daedric Prince Molag Bal, a map of Tamriel, and a huge 224-page illustrated book. Additionally, Imperial Edition players will have the ability to play as an Imperial regardless of alliance. And just to sweeten the deal, you'll get a white Imperial horse, a Mudcrab pet, and a pair of Rings of Mara. The whole set is bound in Steelbook packaging.

    Notably, the leaked image includes a PlayStation 4 logo across the top. The Elder Scrolls Online is releasing for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Given the PS4 logo, it's not immediately clear if the Imperial Edition will be available across all platforms."

    Making an entire race exclusive to the $ spenders. Pretty sad. It reminds me when STO did that with the playable Borg.
    The game is also for the console. Just another story driven swtor, IMO. Not interested.... Especially after seeing their b$ gimmicks.

    Why is every one getting all mad. When their is no imperial everyone is fine but when you have to pay for them everyone gets all crazy.

    If you want the imperial pay the extra money if you dont want it dont pay the extra money.

     

    Nuff said.

    If the game was F2P I would not be concerned. But when you have to pay the box price and a monthly sub you are entitled to the entire game and it's content. You do not demand extra money for an iconic race that, if introduced in certain ways, is lore breaking. If you think that the current process of charging extra for things that you already have paid for, then you're only furthering an ugly development that will only harm yourself.

    A unique race as part of a collectors edition? Not a bad business decision. I hope the race comes with a 'digital deluxe' edition as well, I'm not fond of statues (and neither paying 150 euro for them).

     

    Still, I was expecting more in-game items, as commonly found in other expensive editions of a game.

    That's the problem...people need to wrap their head around they are paying 107 plus tax for the physical items not the digital imperial item, that's a freebie.

    I'd be happy with people acknowledging he was talking out his ass to pander to a demographic and that the sub doesn't get you everything in this game. That's all.

    Of course he was; if anybody thinks he wasn't, I've got a bridge to sell them.  I am less annoyed by people trying to sell products doing everything they can to market them effectively than I am by the people who seem to honestly think people who spend more shouldn't be allowed to have more as a result of that spending.

     

    Totally.  They should change Chess so that you can purchase lost pieces to return them to the board.  Chess tournaments would make sooooo much more money that way.

    I agree because clearly their PR firm sucks because the game is supposed to be released for the pc in two months and six days according to their own game directer and usually pre-orders are put out about six months in advance. So Zenimax droped the ball somewhere. http://elderscrollsonline.com/en/news/post/2013/12/11/eso-release-plans-announced

    Correct and what Amazon put on their site was the physical copy of the CE.

    Its funny all this drama over what most likely is just armor and other aesthetics. Never mind it isn't just aesthetics. LOL

    Evidently, the imperial race will be included according to their store page. It will be given unique bonuses as well which is somewhat bothersome. However I won't let that get me down. Everyone can still get Imperial armour as long as you know someone who actually owns the CE.

     

    Either way, I'm still not too bothered by it. As long as the mount doesn't come for free. I'm hoping you'll still need to farm up for it ingame.

    The mount will be as many games that do such CE bonuses.  Free (might have a level requirement though equally likely not).

    The main problem people are going to have is the Imperial race and the possible racials (not cosmetic - their value can be argued as it is unknown, but it is not merely cosmetic), and their implications regarding many players trust in the game.

    There is that ugly word again.  If you pay the box price, you are entitled to create a character and play for a month.  If you pay the monthly sub after that, you are entitled to access to the servers.  That is the end of your entitlement.  Anything they want to charge for separately, they can.

    Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.
