Historically, being an emperor came with its own set of rewards. The guy sitting on the throne got unlimited power, the adulation of his subjects, and access to special perks like getting seated first at the local Cheescake Factory. In The Elder Scrolls Online, getting crowned Emperor in the player vs player portion of the game will give the victorious character a true advantage over everyone else. Game director Paul Sage explained to OXM why people may want to take over the Imperial City.
“Players who become Emperor will get a full skill line that they keep throughout the rest of their lives in The Elder Scrolls Online. It won’t be easy to become Emperor, but we think people will be glad they worked for it.”
The Elder Scrolls Online is scheduled to launch on April 4th for PC, and in June for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
