Got an email that said I had been registered for beta, leave lots of feedback, and keep my mouth shut.  I don't sub and don't remember submitting a request so this must be a random thingy.  D/L now in progress...

    You are sure it's from the actual company and that it's not some phishing scam or that you are downloading loads of viruses?

    Was wondering the same thing. But a lot depends on how it's done. If you download from the official site, and you can log in and everything, all's fine.

    Using a link in that email on the other hand..feeling lucky today?

    If it involves a beta key, it's usually displayed, so you can enter it on the ofificial page. Any confirmation links should be re-requestable via the official page, unless they have a messed up website.

    @botrytis: Morrowind - http://www.mmorpg.com/elder-scrolls-online/videos/the-elder-scrolls-online-morrowind-beta-thehiveleader-1000005331

    So it's possible.

    I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
    And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
    Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
    And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

    Look at the links and the header of the email. That will tell you if it is real or not. I mean, what beta would they be testing for a game that has been out a while?

    Right now the Morrowind not-expansion pack is in closed testing under NDA.

    Simple check: login on game's website and see biling history. Those codes are applied automatically and e-mail just informs about this fact.

    Also as far as I am aware current and former players that participated in vanilla beta events have some priority here regardless their subscription current status.

    Man is op gonna be pissed when he plays it

    Any graphical, audio, or gameplay restrictions not seen in other mmos but found in FFXIV can be blamed on one thing.

    Quickest way to know if it's real. Go to the ESO forums and try to get in to read the Morrowind test forum. If you can get in then it was a legit invite.

    Contrary to what the email said about needing to agree to the NDA inside the game before being allowed to go to that forum, if your account gets flagged as someone who was invited, you get immediate access.

    And yes from what I can tell the invite was not selective in any way shape or form - it was a massive invite to just about everyone.
