Move-in day has finally arrived for Elder Scrolls Online players on Xbox One and Playstation 4.

The move-in day has finally arrived for Elder Scrolls Online players on Xbox One and Playstation 4. The long-awaited "Homestead" update previously launched on PC/Mac on Monday, February 6, 2017, but is now on consoles. (The update is an estimated 30MB.)


"Homestead" was first announced in December 2016, and is a free update that introduces 39 unique homes throughout Tamriel. Players also have over 2,000 individual pieces of furniture and decorative options available through the Furnishing Crafting trait.

Non-ESO Plus Players are limited to 50 furnishings, 1 Trophy Bust, 1 Assistant, and either a Mount or pet within their home. These limits double for active ESO Plus players (100 furnishings, 2 Trophy Busts, 2 Assistants, and 2 mounts or pets).
