Zenimax just announced that a new batch of beta invite emails has been sent out. Beta will take place this weekend. Announcement says that the NDA is still in place and you should not share screenshots, videos or information with the general public. I guess this answers our speculation about whether the NDA drops this Friday.
What is peculiar about this beta though is that Curse.com has got 500,000 beta keys to give away for it. You have to become a premium member of Curse (which will set you back USD 4.95 for one month) to be eligible to get that key a full two days before everyone else:
Premium Only: February 4th – 5th, 2014
All Curse Members: February 6th – 10th, 2014
This is the first time that anyone else other than Zenimax is providing a way to enter the ESO beta and we can only hope that these types of giveaway will become more abundant as we approach launch day. Here’s to hoping to see a new beta weekend every weekend for the next two months so everyone can experience the game and stress out the servers in preparation for launch day mayhem.
