Elder Scrolls Online’s Next DLC Will Add The Dark Brotherhood

With the thieves’ guild DLC having recently been added to Bethesda’s MMO spin-off of their Elder Scrolls series, it looks like the followers of Sithis and the Night Mother, the Dark Brotherhood, are the focus of the game’s next expansion.

Set along the Gold Coast in the far western region of Tamriel, the new DLC will give players the chance to train in another passive skill line, outfit their characters in new outfits that are more appropriate for a stealthy killer, and also open up the ability to take on repeatable contracts for the Brotherhood.

  • Join the Dark Brotherhood and become an assassin for hire
  • Visit the Gold Coast, available to characters of all levels, where you can explore Anvil and Kvatch for the first time since The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Hours of exciting story content and quests that will have you revisiting your favorite areas of Tamriel
  • New, repeatable quest content involving Contracts and the Black Sacrament
  • Challenging new group bosses and delves to conquer
  • A new passive skill line exclusive to members of the Dark Brotherhood
  • Unique costumes, motifs and item sets inspired by the deadly Dark Brotherhood

Though there’s no exact date, these new content packs are scheduled to launch every quarter, so those anxious to slit some throats for the night Mother won’t have much longer to wait.

    It probably is, they just pay people to play it
    They had a million dollar give-away thing if you played to try to get more people to play it but even then no one played it
    it’s as dead as Todd’s lies

    Surprisingly, yes.

    But this game, its lore and good god, Its terrible. I find it funny that shit that was already included in past games have been stripped away and resold to the player.

    Bethsheda is the only game company I know that takes away content each game it produces.

    Yes. His presence was felt through the entirety of northern Azeroth. There were several zones dedicated entirely to fighting his Undead armies.

    This is like not including those Undead armies at all. Like they had abandoned Lordaeron and shipped every undead up to Northrend, leaving empty towns where the Western and Eastern Plaguelands were.
