Bethesda has revealed additional details and the final release dates for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited's next DLC, Dark Brotherhood, which will be released for the PC on 31st May, while the console versions will have to wait until the 14th June.
The expansion can be purchased separately for 2,000 crowns from the the game's virtual marketplace, although it's actually available for free to people with an ESO Plus membership ($15/month). A Collector's Bundle will also be available in the Crown Store for 4,000 crowns, which includes the ark Brotherhood DLC game pack, the Highland Wolf Mount, the Sylvan Nixad pet, and five Crown Experience Scrolls.
In the Dark Brotherhood players can join the infamous guild of assassins and return to the Gold Coast, a zone that hasn't been seen since 2006's The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. Use the new passive skill-line to defend the brotherhood against a mysterious foe, with hours of new story content, assassination quests and more.
Here's the full details on the Dark Brotherhood DLC sent to us by Bethesda:
Additional DLC 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.
Of course, Dark Brotherhood doesn't officially launch until the 31st May, although you can actually test it out on The Elder Scrolls Online's public test server from today. More information can be found.
