The Elder Scrolls Online Dark Brotherhood DLC Launches on June 14 for PS4 & Xbox One
After giving us details last week, Bethesda announced today that the Dark Brotherhood DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will be available on June 14 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release happening on May 31.
Dark Brotherhood will cost 2,000 crowns through the ESO Crown Store, with ESO Plus members getting it for free. A DLC Collector’s Bundle will also be available for 4,000 crowns, and it includes Dark Brotherhood, the Highland Wolf Mount, the Sylvan Nixad pet, and five Crown Experience Scrolls.
Joining the guild of assassins and returning to the Gold Coast (previously seen in Oblivion), Dark Brotherhood includes a new passive skill-line, hours of new story content, repeatable assassination quests, and much more, as Bethesda details:
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.
There will also be a base-game patch when Dark Brotherhood launches, which adds toggle-able nameplates for all characters, character name display on console, item locking, the removal of Veteran Ranks, Cyrodiil performance improvements, and much more.
