Q: Where can I download the client?
Use https://account.elderscrollsonline.com/login and log in to your account to download the client.
Q: How big is the client download/patch?
You will have to download around 21Gb of data if you’re downloading it from scratch. Patch size seems to vary between users. Reports range from 1Gb to 5Gb, so your best best is to run it and see.
Q: The ESO launcher keeps telling me I’m out of space, but I have over 30Gb free!
You need at least 60Gb free on the drive you’re downloading ESO on. Once the client has been downloaded and installed, the final size will be around 25Gb, but you will need to have 60Gb free during download.
Q: I was in the last beta(s), will I be invited again?
A:Yes. Everyone who was on the last beta has been invited again. You do not need to wait for an email.
Q: So if I was invited in the last beta and got a new email. Can I give the new beta code to a friend?
No. The code you’ve been given is the same as the one you got the first time you were invited, so no, you can’t give it to a friend.
Q: I still don’t know if I’m in the beta! How can I be sure?
Two ways: Try logging in to the forums. If you can log in, you’re invited. Or log in to your account and check under “My Purchased Games”, it should say “Beta Access” like so.
Q: Will there be an open beta?
