The Dark Brotherhood makes its long-awaited return to Tamriel in The Elder Scrolls: Online. The DLC is already available for the Xbox One and will be released tomorrow for the PS4.
Now that the Dark Brotherhood is back, no one is safe in all of Tamriel. The latest DLC will give players the chance to join one of Tamriel’s most infamous guilds and return to the Gold Coast, an area not scene since The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Once players join The Dark Brotherhood, they’ll be able to unlock new a passive skill-line and build their character to be a formidable assassin. But that’s not all. They’ll have to defend the guild against a mysterious enemy through hours of new story content, or just take on some of the repeatable assassination quests to advance their skills even further.
Here’s what Bethesda Softworks told us about the DLC:
“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.
