Beta Account

Hi, so I have a beta account which I don't think I used since 2013 however I am interested in starting this game again so here are my questions:

Basically I want to know what version of the game I need to purchase in order to retain my beta account. For example if i purchase through steam would I loose access to this account or what? Does it need to be through the ESO store, or bethesda account? Or do I already own the game from being a beta user?

My account has the "Welcome Back Weekend:" code applied for "The Elder Scrolls® Online: Tamriel Unlimited™" on it, not sure if that matters or anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

    You can buy the steam version, then just put your beta account login information
    As you can see here I have my PSN (don't play, don't have PS Plus anymore) and PC accounts linked.
    Be careful, you can unlink your PS4 account, but can't unlink your steam.

    I suggest avoiding Steam.

    It has a lot of connection issues, more than just buying it through the website. Although, Idk about beta-accs. I assume you just use the same login details. And it doesn't matter if base game or chapters.

    Interesting, yours says "Elder Scrolls Online Beta" and member since 2014 and all that but I don't see that anywhere on my account page.

    heck the only reference to the beta is my billing history which says "[beta_group_9_5]"

    Will it look like yours once I buy it on steam? And do I link the account from the game on steam? because i don't see anyway to do that on the account page.

    My billing history says beta access, welcome back weekend and summerset closed beta, and the respective product codes.
    I have nothing similar to "beta_group"... The remaining are just crates.

    I suggest you submit a support ticket.
