ZeniMax Online Studios’ multiplayer online role-playing game “The Elder Scrolls Online” has sent out additional invitations to its beta test, according to an announcement on the game’s official website.

According to the email invites, this beta weekend will allow players to try out the low-level questing. It would also offer the opportunity to participate in the three-way war at the heart of the game’s story.

Players who receive an invite will have to create a beta account using the code provided by ZeniMax. They can then download the game client, which ZeniMax formerly confirmed to be approx. 20GB. Pre-loading is highly recommended to avoid wasting time in downloading the files on Friday night.

Those who registered for the beta are asked to check for the invitation in their spam folder or the “promotions tab” for Gmail users. More invites will be rolled out in the near future as the beta continues.

Elder Scrolls Online is set hundreds of years before the single-player Elder Scrolls games. Players create a custom character and then join one of three alliances battling for control of Cyrodiil. The warring factions must also contend with other foes, including an evil invasion of the realm.

The Elder Scrolls Online will be released in 2014 on Windows PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, requiring a $14.99 monthly subscription. In the future, the developer may offer discounts for buying multiple months and will also support game time cards.
