Elder Scrolls Online gives you a first look at Imperial City DLC pack

    
61

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.

Think he means the amount you get. I can only speak for TOR but the 500 cc (600 with an authenticator) does not equal the £9 $15 you pay as a sub, whereas eso gives you 1500 I.e. The same amount you’d get if you bought the crowns directly.

Perhaps you should play more games. ESO is not the first by any long shot.

NomadMorlock Cool looks like I will be returning to this game in September . I have been on hiatus until the veteran ranks are reformed . It looks like it now may be viable to level them through dungeons and pvp . That will be a big improvement .

What ESO does that all other games should do is give you cash shop currently monthly for subbing.  So if you subscribe in ESO, you will get 15 dollar worth of crowns every month.  I can’t think of other MMOs that do that, which they should.  Good thing ESO is not doing what other MMOs are recently doing, calling content patches “expansions”.

theblackmage75 unixtimed yeah, that’s the quote I was trying to find but couldn’t. Thanks.
Now the question is how do you define “optional” content because I definitely don’t see dungeons and pvp stuff as optional, they are quite mandatory. I should have expected it from Bethesda to play with the words.
Not to mention the price – 2500 crowns. There’s no suitable denominations to buy, cheapest comes 3000 for 20 euro and I’m left with 500 I don’t need. I can save them til the next 2500 dlc but then again the cheapest will be to buy another 3k crowns. then I’m left with 1000. You get the point…

Hmmm, they want 2500 crowns. Sadly, they only gave me 2200 crowns when the game went F2P. Too bad.

Fantastic content addition, great skill and class updates, many responses based directly on player feedback and requests.

Spell Crafting is still under development and is no longer on the back burner. Last ESO live.

You do not. Once you discover the two new dungeons, you can travel directly there.
