The Elder Scrolls Online, Zenimax Online Studios' nearly released massively multiplayer online role-playing game, had more than 5 million people register for its beta, publisher Bethesda Softworks revealed today in a blog post.

The news that twice as many players registered for the beta as eat McDonald's Big Macs every day is just one of several facts released about The Elder Scrolls Online and its development. Other notable tidbits include the news that players can create 5.0952187*1058 character combinations, find 61 million items and meet 10,202 non-playable characters in the MMORPG. Also of note: The development team downed 162,784 cups of coffee since May 2011, the equivalent of 5,087 pounds of coffee beans or the weight of five polar bears or 360 spider monkeys.

The Elder Scrolls Online will launch tomorrow, April 4, on Mac and Windows PC for $59.99. That initial purchase includes 30 days of access. Thereafter, players will need to sign up for a $14.99 monthly subscription. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will follow in June. Press play on the Overview video below to see the game in action.
