January 21, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

With release date and pricing information coming in the near future, Bethesda announced the Thieves Guild DLC game pack for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited today.

Coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Thieves Guild sees you joining The Thieves Guild of Abah’s Landing, an organization of robbers and burglars, who are being hunted by a mercenary guard force known as the Iron Wheel. Their goal is to bring the guild to justice for a heist gone wrong, so you must steal from the shadows and recover lost treasures to help restore the guild’s reputation.

As with previous updates, Thieves Guild will be released in two parts – the DLC game pack, and the base game patch:
