Imperial City Expansion Comes to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited This September on PS4, Xbox One

July 15, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Marking the first DLC expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, Bethesda and ZeniMax have announced Imperial City, which will be available for PlayStation 4 on September 16, Xbox One on September 15, and PC/Mac on August 31. Free to those with an active ESO Plus membership, everyone else can buy it for 2,500 crowns via the ESOTU Crown Store.

Promising hours of additional gameplay featuring new areas, quests, enemies, and more, Imperial City sees the Imperial City, the heart of the Cyrodiilic Empire, falling to Daedric Prince Molag Bal. Now, all three alliances must battle against not only Daedric forces, but each other as well.

The Imperial City will launch in two parts – the actual DLC game pack, and the game patch. Here’s the details on both:

Imperial City DLC Game Pack Features & Content

With the purchase of the Imperial City DLC game pack, you get access to the full Imperial City zone. That includes the following:
