Elder Scrolls Online’s Dragon Bones DLC will launch on February 12

ZeniMax has just announced release dates for Elder Scrolls Online’s Dragon Bones DLC – and of course, the free release of update 17 too. PC and Mac players will be jumping in on February 12th, while consolers will just read about it on Reddit until it’s live for them too on February 27th.

Even before the update hit the test server, ZeniMax has painted a clear picture of exactly what we’re getting – most notably, outfit customization and two new dungeons, Fang Lair and Scalecaller Peak.

Stay tuned for more on Elder Scrolls Online this afternoon, when our column explores what might be in store after Dragon Bones is old news.

Catch up on the revelations from The Elder Scrolls Online’s most recent patch preview

Curious about the next DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online? We can hardly blame you; it brings with it much-desired features like home storage, outfit changes, and all of the content you’d expect from a DLC about diving into tons of content related to dragon bones. It even got a full preview stream, but if you missed the stream when it was live, you can check it all out in the video just below.

As usual, the diligent folks of Reddit compiled a few bits of relevant summarizing information during and after the stream. Of note: Housing storage furnishings cannot be crafted but must be purchased through crowns, mediators, or Tel Var merchants, but can also be obtained through the new Level Up Advisor once you reach level 18. Awards of this sort are also account-wide rather than character-based, so your second character won’t benefit from the same advantages. Check out the full stream below to see the content in action.

Elder Scrolls Online announces new chapter and three DLC, including Dragon Bones, for 2018: ‘We are not slowing down at all’

The Elder Scrolls Online had a great year between Homestead and Morrowind, to say nothing of the rest of its DLC. But what’s coming next year? Good stuff. In fact, one of my predictions has already come true!

“You can expect three more DLCs and a full new Chapter for ESO in 2018,” ZeniMax’s Matt Firor writes today in an address to players ahead of the holiday. “We’re not slowing down, at all. There’s so much to do and explore in Tamriel, and we are very excited to take you to some highly-requested areas next year. We’ll officially announce the first DLC of 2018 just after the first of the year, but here’s a small preview: It’s a dungeon-based DLC called The Elder Scrolls Online: Dragon Bones. As the name implies, it is Nord-based in theme, with each of the two dungeons expanding upon the lore of that region.”

The Skyrim-y update will also include quality-of-life tweaks, “including at least one long-awaited feature that everyone who cares about their characters’ appearance will love and the Homestead storage items.” Expect it on the PTS “early (very early) next year.”

We’re streaming ESO’s wintertime events tonight, so join us live on OPTV at 9 p.m. EST!
