Elder Scrolls Online has been cruising along in buy-to-play mode for a few months now (and reportedly doing quite well for itself), but its next true test of the new business model will come later this summer with the game’s first DLC update.
The Imperial City DLC pack is scheduled to land on August 31st for PC and Mac, with consoles to follow on September 15th (Xbox One) and September 16th (PlayStation 4). The pack includes six districts with plenty of new quests, dungeons, “massive” PvP battles, collectables, veteran rank 16 gear, and a new foe called the Xivkyn. That last one is a winning Scrabble word if we ever saw one.
Imperial City can be obtained either by subscribing or by purchasing it for 2,500 crowns in the store. You can get an eyeful of the new content in the DLC trailer below.
