Last chance on The Elder Scrolls Online preorder at 20% off, releases tomorrow

This sponsored post is produced by Dealzon.

11/11/11 marked the release date of Skyrim, the last Elder Scrolls game. Appropriately enough, tomorrow (04/04/14) marks the official release of The Elder Scrolls Online. Now’s the last chance to preorder either the Standard or Imperial Edition and take advantage of the slew of preorder bonuses, including the ability to play any race in any alliance.

Oh… but you don’t have to wait until tomorrow to play, and you don’t need to pay the full list price, either. GMG has a 20% off coupon code slashing the Imperial Edition from $80 to $64 and the Standard from $60 to $48. You’ll also get a “Head Start” key sent to you right away, granting you “Early Access” – though you’ll still have to download and install the ~29GB file first.

As it happens, GMG also has the lowest price ever on Skyrim Legendary Edition. The price was recently reduced from $59.99 to $39.99, and GMG has a 40% price break on that to $23.99. Yet that same 20% off coupon code for TESO also works on Skyrim, further slashing the price to $19.20. The Legendary Edition includes the base game and all DLC add-ons. For perspective, Dragonborn – just one of the DLC add-ons – currently costs $20 on Steam.
