Imperials As An ESO Race Option

The Imperial race is only available to The Elder Scrolls Online through purchasing the Imperial Edition of the game.  If you didn’t purchase the Imperial Edition, you can purchase the upgrade through the Crown Store for 2100 crowns.

Imperials are quite unique in that they do not belong to any of the three alliance factions.  You may choose which alliance you’d like to join with an Imperial.
