Now that release day is nearly upon us, Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms pre-order deals are starting to appear in the wild. Besides the core rulebook and dice, you can get your hands on starter sets from around $30 / £25 each that cover three different armies: the Imperial Legion; Stormcloaks; and undead from Bleak Falls Barrow, are all available to order now ahead of the early-to-mid April release date. That means players can choose which army they want to pursue right from the off, rather than being lumped with a more generic pack.
I'm excited to get started, personally speaking. After visiting developer Modiphius' offices for our Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms preview, I came away impressed. As well as being a miniatures wargame waged between armies in the vein of Warhammer, it also features a single-player 'Delve' mode that pits you against NPC forces whose moves are decided by dice rolls and a table of actions. These missions are inspired by the main storyline of Skyrim, but they mix things up with additional side-quests, loot, and randomised events to keep things fresh. There's also a separate campaign where the consequences of your actions carry from one match to another, not unlike the best tabletop RPGs.
More units are sure to become available over time as they did for the game's Fallout-themed predecessor (Fallout: Wasteland Warfare), so we'll add them to this Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms pre-order page as soon as we know about them. It's worth checking out the developer's own store, too - there are a few items of scenery available on their website we haven't seen elsewhere.
All things considered, knowing how to pre-order Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms in order to get it at the earliest opportunity, will certainly help tide us over until The Elder Scrolls 6 and next-gen space epic Starfield arrive.
It's important to note that while you can pre-order everything below, the exact release dates and shipping times vary a fair bit. We expect this to be ironed out soon enough and will update this as and when appropriate.
