details surrounding the first major 2018 update for The Elder Scrolls Online are now available.
The game will be getting a two-dungeon DLC pack called Dragon bones, in addition to Update 17, a free addition for all players, that add a slew of new features and upgrades in the world of the Elder Scrolls Online.
Dragon Bones will add two new dungeons, Scalecaller Peak and Fang Lair — available in both normal and veteran difficulties. The two additional dungeons will feature both, new and returning enemies, such as plague-ridden ogres, powerful sorcerers, undead monsters and even the reanimated bones of an ancient dragon.
Players brave enough to venture into the new dungeons will be rewarded with new items and monster sets, collectables, and achievements. As a special bonus, players will receive a Renegade Dragon Priest mask, awarded just for entering one of the two dungeons. The Dragon Bones downloadable content will be free for ESO Plus members, and available for purchase from the Crown Store for non-members.
The free-for-everyone Update 17 will release simultaneously with Dragon Bones, and will include:
· The Outfit System: allows players to customize the look of their equipment, regardless of equipped gear
· Two New Battlegrounds: the Orc Stronghold of Mor Khazgur and the Dwarven ruins of Deeping Drome bring 2 new arenas for 4v4v4 multiplayer mayhem (Battlegrounds PvP requires ESO: Morrowind)
· Home Storage System: this highly anticipated feature provides players the opportunity to lock items away safely in their homes via the Homestead housing system
· Additional Gameplay Features: new quality of life additions will help new and experienced players get the most out of ESO, including the new Level Up and Skills Advisors, guiding players to the best upgrades when they level up; and improvements to combat, making it easier to identify and activate ability synergies. The additions and improvements included in Update 17 will be available free of charge for all players.
Both Update 17 and the Dragon Bones downloadable content will be released sometime in February.
The Elder Scrolls Online is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
