The expansion can be purchased for $20 in the game’s crown store. If you’re an active game subscriber, the expansion pack will come included — for free!

Complete with a look at The Gold Coast, new weapons and armor inspired by the shadow guild, and gameplay and graphic fixes, the expansion will include a heap of features available for both expansion and base-game owners.

Dark Brotherhood

Sometimes the best way to deal with an annoyance is permanent removal.

The expansion will feature:

  • Access to join the Dark Brotherhood and become an assassin.
  • Entry into The Gold Coast. Explore the region home to the historical cities of Anvil and Kvatch — cities we haven’t seen since Oblivion.
  • A new passive skill line. Protect yourself with the shadows. Become the embodiment of death itself. The all-new skill line relates to murdering citizens and becoming the hand of the Void.
  • Hours of exciting new story content.
  • New repeatable quests. Complete daily bounty missions, contract kills, or the most serious sacrament quests.
  • Gain a profit from heinous murders.
  • Two new delves. Explore Hrota Cave and Garlas Agea with your friends. Each one features their own distinctive challenges and rewards.
  • Two world-boss encounters.
  • New gear and rewards inspired by the Dark Brotherhood. 

Dark Brotherhood

The Dark Brotherhood expansion can be purchased from the in-game store.

For non-expansion owners, Dark Brotherhood will also allow you to take advantage of some of the new nifty features.

Base-game owners will gain access to:

  • Two new crafting styles. 
  • Combat and gameplay improvements.
  • Adjustments to Item Traits.
  • Craft Bags. These will help you store a nearly unlimited amount of crafting materials.
  • Item Locking. No more will you initiate the destruction of your most precious items. The new item lock mechanic will allow you to protect the items most dearest to you.
  • Poison-making. For those who want to be especially nasty to their enemies.
  • The removal of Veteran Ranks.

With the addition of the Night Mother and her followers, the online world of Tamriel is starting to become whole. Though we’re only missing a few more guilds, the Dark Brotherhood should keep us preoccupied until then.

Unfortunately, if you’re a console owner, you’ll have to wait a few more weeks to get your chance to carve your legacy. 

Dark Brotherhood is expected to release June 14 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
