The Explorer's Pack was a bonus that came with pre-ordering The Elder Scrolls Online or its Imperial Edition. It unlocked the following digital content:
- The ability to play as any race (excluding Imperials) in any of the three alliances.
- An exclusive Scuttler vanity pet.
- A bundle of bonus treasure maps that lead to hidden loot chests.
Those who purchased the Explorer's Pack through the PC/Mac Store also received early access to the game five days before release, along with a surprise two-day grace period of additional free play. Physical copies of the standard edition only received three days of early access. PS4, Xbox One and Japanese pre-orders did not include early access, but still received the Explorer's Pack. The Explorer's Pack was temporarily made available again during the Japanese free trial campaign, almost two months after launch in Japan.
The bonus treasure maps and the ability to play as any race are available as part of the Adventurer Pack bundle in the Crown Store, with the Scuttler pet being replaced with a Bantam Guar pet.
The Explorer's Pack may no longer be redeemed, as any codes that were left unused have since expired. Of the items, only the Scuttler pet is unobtainable for those who do not own the pack.
