Set 1,000 years before the events in Skyrim, three Alliances have emerged, each struggling for supremacy.
As three great powers battle one another for control of the Imperial City – and with it all of Tamriel – darker
forces move to destroy the world. Play with friends in massive player versus player battles, battle together
in public dungeons, or adventure alone. The choices you make will shape your destiny.

The Imperial Edition is the collector's edition of the base Elder Scrolls Online game. Both the physical version, available in retail, and the digital version were available for pre-order for a limited time.

Physical copies of the Imperial Edition included:

  • A game registration code for a copy of the base game to be installed with four DVD-ROMs.
  • A Collector's Steelbook case.
  • A Molag Bal Statue: "A collectible 12" statue featuring Molag Bal, Daedric Prince of domination and enslavement."
  • A copy of The Improved Emperor's Guide to Tamriel: "A 224-page illustrated guide annotated by the Imperial scholar, Flaccus Terentius."
  • A "Premium Map of Tamriel": "A printed map detailing alliance-controlled zones and the ultimate conquest: Cyrodiil."

Both physical and digital copies of the Imperial Edition unlocked an "exclusive collection of digital content":

  • Play as an Imperial: "Become an Imperial and play in any Alliance. Gain unique bonuses, crafting styles[1], gear, and more."
  • A White Imperial Horse: "Summon this Imperial mount and journey through Tamriel with increased speed."
  • A Nibenay Mudcrab Vanity Pet: "Explore Tamriel with this mudcrab pet scuttling along by your side".
  • Rings of Mara: "Complete the Ritual of Mara with a friend and receive an experience bonus when you play together".

As with pre-ordering the base game, pre-ordering either version of the Imperial Edition included:

  • 2 
    This no longer able to be redeemed as all available codes for it have since expired.
  • 3 
    After the Tamriel Unlimited update, this was converted to 30 days worth of an ESO Plus subscription.

Those who bought the Imperial Edition on Steam before 21 July, 2014 also received a Whiterun Wolfhound.

As of the introduction of Homestead with Update 13, owning the Imperial Edition became a requirement to purchase the Strident Springs Demesne outside of Arenthia.

  • The Digital Imperial Edition Upgrade, available for owners of the base game, originally available through the PC/Mac Store and Steam, can now only be purchased through the Crown Store. Crown Store upgrades act on a per-server basis; if you want to upgrade your base game on both servers, you will need to buy the upgrade twice. Additional Pledges of Mara can be bought separately in the Crown Store.
  • Unlike the Crown Store upgrade, any Imperial Edition upgrades purchased from the PC/Mac Store or Steam were not server-bound and applied to all PC servers.
  • PC/Mac players who copied their account to PS4 and Xbox One maintained their Imperial Edition status had they previously purchased it.
  • Several players who pre-ordered the digital Imperial Edition for PC/Mac also accidentally received a pet Rufous Mudcrab.
