It looks like Bethesda may have had to reveal things a bit earlier as expected as the company has just confirmed that there will be an Imperial Edition of The Elder Scrolls Online after it was leaked yesterday. This Imperial Edition will come in at a price of $99.99 US / $139.95 AUD and will be “extremely limited in quality,” though a digital only version will cost $79.99 US / $119.95 AUD and come with only the digital bonuses.
As for what is in the physical version, you can see it above and read about the details below:
- Molag Bal Statue. A 30.5 cm statue featuring Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement.
