The developers also touched on a few more key points:

  • Beta players do not need to create a new account, but all beta characters have been deleted.
  • The faster-moving opening quests from the later versions of the beta will be used in the official game, so re-rolling shouldn’t be too rough (players can still skip “The Island.”
  • The client used in the beta can be used for the official game. Just update it and go.
  • There are several fixes coming for in-game issues regarding Guilds, Traits, PvP, and quest bugs. No exact timetable was given, but the developers said “at launch or soon after.”
  • Players will have the option of joining overflow servers if a login queue forms. These overflow servers don’t have the social features enabled.

The Elder Scrolls Online will release on April 4 for PC and Mac users. A slightly altered version is set to release for Xbox One and PS4 in June.
