ESO infographic reveals some interesting stats ahead of its official launch

Posted on April 3, 2014 AT 09:13am

Bethesda has released a new infographic for The Elder Scrolls Online that reveals a few interesting facts and statistics ahead of the game’s official launch on PC tomorrow, April 4.

According to the image, over five million players registered for the game’s beta and the weirdest offer for a beta key was someone’s first born child and another person’s left arm. There are apparantly 61 million items in the game—equivalent to the population of the U.K. mainland—and over 40 million weapon variations.

Continuing the statistics, there are over 2,000 books in the game that will take players 32 hours to read. As a final, odd little fact, players would need to kill 119,050 mudcrabs to reach level 50—luckily there are other ways to level.

The Elder Scrolls Online is currently in early access and is set to officially launch tomorrow, April 4 for PC. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will have to wait until June.
