Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited v2.4.0—the Dark Brotherhood DLC game pack! We have some great new content, features, and systems in store for you, and we’re excited to hear what you think!
Dark Brotherhood, like our previous updates, will come in two parts—the DLC game pack, and the base game patch. The base game patch will be available to everyone who owns The Elder Scrolls Online and the DLC game pack will automatically download with it, allowing you instant access to the new content when you purchase it, or activate an ESO Plus membership.
Anyone who owns ESO and has an active ESO Plus membership will also automatically have access to the Dark Brotherhood DLC game pack. If your ESO Plus membership ends or lapses, you will no longer have access to the Dark Brotherhood DLC game pack content and areas, but you will still have any items you earned while you had access. You will also keep any acquired skills from the Dark Brotherhood skill line up to the rank that you earned while you were in the Guild, even if you respec. If you do not have an active ESO Plus membership you can purchase the DLC game pack for 2,000 crowns via the in-game Crown Store.
Join the Dark Brotherhood and become their newest assassin. Aside from hours of new story content, two new delves and group bosses, this update introduces a deadly new passive skill line exclusive to members of the Dark Brotherhood. We also have a number of new item sets available, plus a variety of repeatable content. In addition, we have some changes to previous DLC game packs including a District capture system for Imperial City and improvements to the Tel Var Stone merchant.
The base game patch also features an abundance of new features including poison-making as an extension of the Alchemy system, improvements to item set traits, more enhancements to the Grouping Tool, nameplates, item locking, Craft Bags for ESO Plus members, and more. And, of course, the highly anticipated removal of Veteran Ranks. We’ll be publishing a deep-dive of Veteran Rank removal on our website later next week, but in the meantime, you’ll find the top-level details in the patch notes below to get you started.
In addition to all the new features and major updates, we have made many fixes and improvements to the overall combat and gameplay (including many stamina-related changes), content throughout the game, itemization, UI, and more.
We hope you enjoy our latest update, which will be approximately 3.2GB in size, and look forward to reading your feedback!
