The latest DLC for Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited “Dark Brotherhood” will launch on May 31st for PC/Mac and June 14th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Dark Brotherhood is included with an active ESO Plus membership or will be available for 2,000 crowns via the ESO Crown Store. PC players can experience the DLC today via the Public Test Servers.
The DLC will see players become an Assassin with an all new skill line and for the first time since The Elder Scrolls Oblivion, the areas of “Knatch” and “Anvil” will be available to explore. The base-game patch that accompanies Dark Brotherhood, free to anyone who owns ESO, is packed with new features and enhancements including the removal of Veteran Ranks, Poison-Making (an all-new addition to Alchemy), nameplates and console character name display, and tons of combat and gameplay balance changes.
Here’s what you can expect from the DLC:
A Covenant of Blood and Shadows
Join the merciless Dark Brotherhood of the Gold Coast, prowling in the shadows cast by the two great powers of the region. Though at the height of their power, the Dark Brotherhood faces a grave threat in the form of a mysterious black-armored warrior capable of bringing down their best agents. Venture forth for another exciting chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online as you carve a bloody swath across Tamriel in the name of the Dark Brotherhood!
Explore the Gold Coast
The westernmost region of Cyrodiil, the Gold Coast, was last seen by Elder Scrolls players in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Come explore the cities of Anvil and Kvatch during the Interregnum, when the region is awash in intrigue and deadly conspiracies!
Murder for Profit
Sometimes the best way to deal with a troublesome person is permanent removal. As a Dark Brotherhood assassin, you’ll be tasked to fill that need. From simple assassination contracts to killing sprees on the blood-soaked streets of Tamriel’s sprawling cities, carve your path into the good graces of the Dark Brotherhood. The truly skilled may engage in special missions at the behest of their dark masters and fulfill a Black Sacrament, slaying a victim named by the Night Mother herself.
New Assassins’ Passive Skills
This all-new skill line relates to murdering citizens and allowing the Shadows of Sithis to protect you from suffering consequences. Because those deaths were sanctioned by Sithis, you are the hand of the Void; you are the embodiment of death itself. The rules of Justice are for those bound by Nirn, not those who are directed by the ideals of Sithis.
