First Elder Scrolls Online Thieves Guild Trailer Shows Why It's Good to be Bad


Bethesda has released the first trailer for Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming Thieves Guild DLC pack, providing a brief look at what players can expect from the upcoming larceny-themed content.

As the name alludes to, the expansion will allow players to join the Thieves Guild. This is a group of pickpockets, burglars, robbers, and thieves–the tagline for the expansion is “Play dirty, get away clean.” The expansion also adds a new zone, more story-focused content, and a 12-player mode.

“As their newest recruit, you’ll sneak along rooftops, steal from the shadows, and recover lost treasures as you explore an all-new zone, experience new story content, challenge yourself with a new 12-player trial, and much more,” Bethesda said in a news release.

No information was shared regarding a price or release date for Thieves Guild, but Bethesda said those details should arrive in the coming weeks. For now, you can check out a new gameplay trailer above.

Thieves Guild was announced during QuakeCon 2015 (via Polygon). It is one part of developer ZeniMax Online’s efforts to keep the game fresh, and will be followed by another expansion, The Dark Brotherhood, later this year.

Previous Elder Scrolls Online expansions have included The Imperial City (August 2015) and Orsinium (November 2015).

The game was released in April 2014 for PC after years of development. The MMO dropped its compulsory monthly subscription in January 2015, shifting to a pay-once model with further support from microtransactions. Console versions of the game debuted on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June 2015.
