Bethesda has begun accepting applications for The Elder Scrolls: Online closed beta testing this morning. This is a chance for fans of the series to play the game ahead of release while providing the developers important feedback about balance, bugs, and gameplay. Their site is seeing some heavy traffic, but this is still available at the time of this writing.
Along with the opportunity to sign-up for the beta process, Bethesda also released a new cinematic trailer.
