When I reviewed The Elder Scrolls Online back in April 2014, it was, well, it wasn’t pretty. Sure, the game was gorgeous, and had some excellent features working in its favour, but the bugs… oh those bugs! They ruined my entire experience, and basically chased me away from playing the game ever again.

Thankfully, a lot has changed since then. The Elder Scrolls Online has now been patched to pieces, no longer has a subscription, and even has had two bits of DLC (The Imperial City and Orsinium) released to keep players coming back for more adventuring minus an arrow in the knee (sorry I couldn’t resist).

And now, it’s due for even more content. Are you ready to join the Dark Brotherhood? Here’s what the new upcoming DLC is all about (via VG247):

The Dark Brotherhood is looking for a few good killers. Explore the Gold Coast and discover if you have what it takes to join the ranks of Tamriel’s master assassins in the Dark Brotherhood DLC game pack. From the port city of Anvil to the Great Cathedral of Kvatch, the business of the Brotherhood consists of murder and mayhem—and business is good! Join the Brotherhood, enter the Sanctuary, and accept your first contract from the mysterious Speaker. Kill well, assassin!

If you’re interested in getting in on all the sneaky action, the Dark Brotherhood DLC can be purchased in two ways. You can grab it by either having an active ESO Plus membership, or you can cough up 2000 crowns in the ESO Crown Store. If you’d like to splurge a little more, there’s a collector’s bundle which costs 4000 crowns. It’ll come with the DLC, a Highland Wolf Mount, a Sylvan Nixad pet, and five crown experience scrolls.

The Dark Brotherhoold DLC will be out on May 31st on PC, and both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 two weeks later, on June 14th. If you’d like to get in on the action a little early, all this content is available right now, on the ESO Public Test Server.

Are you still playing The Elder Scrolls Online? Are you excited for all this new assassination action? I know I would be, if I actually played the damn game!

      Nothing but rumours at this stage. But this is “Oh-btw-Fallout-4-is-coming-in-6-months” Bethesda we’re talking about. Guaranteed they’re busy working of ES VI.

        At least Skywind is looking very good. So I’ll get that to cure the itch until we get VI.
        Plus, Skywind will be a nice thing for those who never played Morrowind.

          Why is this the first time I’ve heard of Skywind?!?! Had to do a quick google search to figure out what you were talking about.
          Morrowind was amazing back in the day. Modern graphics and a cool remaster? Hells yeah!
          And good ol’ Bethesda, giving permission. Nintendo should learn from them. That Zelda remaster was looking awesome until they shut it down.

            I try to keep as updated about Skywind as I can, so you can be sure I’ll make a huge thing about it on Lagz once it’s ready 😀

    It’s still an MMO based around a game that was one of the best selling SINGLE PLAYER games of all time.
    I played it mayself, won’t return to it no matter what they do. It’s not Elder Scrolls.

    I was keen for ESO. Until I read the reviews. I really wish they would just allow co-op play in the ES games. I mean, Skyrim with a partner would absolutely rock.

      Yea man. That would be so damn awesome.
