Elder Scrolls Online Thieves Guild DLC Gets Detailed


Earlier today, we reported on a new trailer that gives a first look at The Elder Scrolls Online’s Thieves Guild. Now, we have more details on what exactly you’ll be doing in the new DLC pack.

Bethesda announced on its website that the Thieves Guild will have players exploring a new zone, embarking on new quests, and performing criminal activities. It’s releasing alongside a patch that’s supposed to improve Cyrodiil and its campaigns, and make a ton of balance changes to combat and gameplay.

You can see a full list of DLC contents and patch fixes below:

The Thieves Guild’s story is described as follows:

The Thieves Guild of Abah’s Landing, an organization of pickpockets, burglars, robbers, and thieves, is being hunted by a mercenary guard force known as the Iron Wheel. This relentless organization will stop at nothing to see the guild brought to justice for a high-stakes heist that went horribly wrong. As their newest recruit, you’ll sneak along rooftops, steal from the shadows, and recover lost treasures to help to restore the guild’s reputation.

No price or release date has been announced at this time, though the Thieves Guild pack is expected sometime this year. The last DLC, Imperial City, was free with the subscription service ESO Plus; if you don’t subscribe, it costs 2500 crowns which amounts to $24.99.

Bethesda revealed last year that The Elder Scrolls Online would also be adding the Dark Brotherhood to the game. And last month, it was announced that players could win $1 million dollars just for playing The Elder Scrolls Online.
