Watch your back the Dark Brotherhood have returned

Great news as the latest DLC pack for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has been officially released titled Dark Brotherhood.  This DLC seems players returning to the iconic Gold Coast from TES IV: Oblivion to join the infamous Dark Brotherhood guild of Assassins.

Are you ready to become one of the deadliest assassin’s in Tamriel. With an all new and exclusive passive skill-line, you will need all you skill and cunning to defend the Brotherhood against a mysterious foe. Prove and hone your skills in repeatable assassination quests and hours of new story content. Further details of the DLC can be found below.

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.

Dark Brotherhood-Exclusive Rewards and Items – Earn new items through in-game quests and browse Dark Brotherhood-themed items coming to the Crown Store soon.

The Dark Brotherhood DLC is available now to download on the Xbox One and is avaiable as part of the active ESO Plus membership or can be purchased for 2,000 crowns via the ESO Crown Store.

The Thieves Guild is coming the ESO

The next DLC game pack for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will introduce the long awaited Thieves Guild into the popular MMO.

For the first time in ESO, players will join the iconic Thieves Guild – an organization of pickpockets, burglars, robbers, and thieves. As their newest recruit you’ll sneak along rooftops, steal from the shadows, and recover lost treasures as you explore an all-new zone, experience new story content, challenge yourself with a new 12-player trial, and much more.

Pricing and a release date will be revealed in the weeks to come, but until then allow Bethesda to tease you with the trailer below:

Bethesda are now in the final throes of preparing The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for it’s release. They have started the final stretch of this long and arduous campaign by creating the first of a new video series giving insight into the world of Tamriel.

This first trailer then is called Freedom and Choice in Tamriel and talks us through your origins, deciding your class, alliance and race. It also covers your playing style, specialised abilities and which weapons and armour you can and maybe can’t use. It also goes on to explain the Champions System, allowing you to always progress in the game.

Will you be trying to find limitations in Tamriel?

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is due for release on Xbox One on the 9th of June.

Let’s face facts, if you’re a fantasy RPG fan and you haven’t played Skyrim, you’ve been living under a rock for the last 5 years.

The Elder Scrolls epic has taken many twists and turns over its many guises and this June will see the release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Bethesda have taken the bold step to move from a subscription-based play model to a more traditional buy-to-play, which can only be a good thing.

This promises to be the biggest Elder Scrolls games to date and will include not only all the updates from the original PC/MAC release, but the Justice and Champion systems as well.

Micro-transactions can be made from within the game using the Crown Store, which I would presume would utilise Xbox Live credits for transactions, although I cannot find any confirmation of this at the moment.

Game Director, Matt Firor had this to say on the announcement,

“Our fans are our biggest inspiration and we’ve listened to the feedback on the entertainment experience they want. We know that Elder Scrolls fans want choice when it comes to how they play and how they pay, and that is what they will get. We have made numerous changes to the game over the past year and we are confident that this is a game that Elder Scrolls fans will want to play.”

 

“Players can explore Tamriel with friends, battle creatures, craft, fish, steal or siege. The choice is theirs. The game offers hundreds of hours of gameplay with unlimited adventures with one single game purchase. We can’t wait for everyone, whether they’ve played before or will be experiencing for the first time, to begin adventuring in The Edler Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.”

Just because it is now free to play, that doesn’t mean that you cannot pay an optional monthly fee for ESO Plus, a premium membership service providing in-game bonuses and a monthly allocation of Crowns to spend. This will also give members access to all DLC game packs while membership is still active. Think of it as a monthly Season Pass if you will, although again, how this will work on consoles is, as yet, not clear.

So, without further ado, the official launch date on Xbox One for this feast of adventuring will be the 9th of June.

To celebrate these announcements Bethesda have released the final cinematic trailer of four, have a look, bearing in mind, it’s not a gameplay trailer, and tell us if it whets your appetite for more adventuring.
