Last night we released additional details for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited’s upcoming DLC game pack, Dark Brotherhood.

Dark Brotherhood will launch on May 31st for PC/Mac and June 14th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Dark Brotherhood is included with an active ESO Plus membership or will be available for 2,000 crowns via the ESO Crown Store.  

With the return of the Dark Brotherhood, no one in Tamriel is safe. In Dark Brotherhood, the latest DLC game pack for the award-winning The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, join the infamous guild of assassins and return to the Gold Coast, a zone not seen since TES:IV Oblivion. Become the deadliest assassin with a new and exclusive passive skill-line, defend the Brotherhood against a mysterious foe in hours of new story content, prove your skill for homicide in new repeatable assassination quests, and more! Dripping with new content, one thing is certain in Dark Brotherhood: blood will flow.

PC Players can experience Dark Brotherhood prior to release on the ESO PTS (Public Test Server) beginning today.

Additional DLC Details:

A Covenant of Blood and Shadows
Join the merciless Dark Brotherhood of the Gold Coast, prowling in the shadows cast by the two great powers of the region. Though at the height of their power, the Dark Brotherhood faces a grave threat in the form of a mysterious black-armored warrior capable of bringing down their best agents. Venture forth for another exciting chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online as you carve a bloody swath across Tamriel in the name of the Dark Brotherhood!

Explore the Gold Coast
The westernmost region of Cyrodiil, the Gold Coast, was last seen by Elder Scrolls players in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Come explore the cities of Anvil and Kvatch during the Interregnum, when the region is awash in intrigue and deadly conspiracies!

Murder for Profit
Sometimes the best way to deal with a troublesome person is permanent removal. As a Dark Brotherhood assassin, you'll be tasked to fill that need. From simple assassination contracts to killing sprees on the blood-soaked streets of Tamriel’s sprawling cities, carve your path into the good graces of the Dark Brotherhood. The truly skilled may engage in special missions at the behest of their dark masters and fulfill a Black Sacrament, slaying a victim named by the Night Mother herself.

New Assassins’ Passive Skills
This all-new skill line relates to murdering citizens and allowing the Shadows of Sithis to protect you from suffering consequences. Because those deaths were sanctioned by Sithis, you are the hand of the Void; you are the embodiment of death itself. The rules of Justice are for those bound by Nirn, not those who are directed by the ideals of Sithis.

Players can wander through a maze of alleys filled with shops and apartments or explore dungeon like tunnels connecting various parts of the town. Pay respects at a mysterious cemetery, relax by the beach or visit the San Giorgio church tower for a fantastic view of the town.

HITMAN started with a Prologue and Paris location in March, Sapienza is Episode 2 and then in May Agent 47 will travel to Marrakesh. From there HITMAN will deliver regular monthly content updates, including three additional locations; Thailand, the United States and the season conclusion in Japan later in 2016.
