The Elder Scrolls Online To Get Maiden Expansion Next Month; New Weapons, Dungeons And Quests Incoming


Early last month, Zenimax Online Studios brought its expansive MMO to consoles in the form of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Dropping the controversial and mandatory subscription model, the transition heralded a new lease of life for Bethesda’s legendary series, and today the publisher has lifted the lid on its first major piece of DLC, The Imperial City.

Launching for PC and Mac first on August 31, the expansion won’t make its way onto consoles until the following month, when it’ll launch for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on September 15 and September 16, respectively.


Those who still hold a subscription to The Elder Scrolls Online will get this extra content free of charge, whereas players who enjoy the mystical, interconnected realm of Tamriel free of charge will have to fork out 2,500 Crowns – the in-game currency. Available to purchase through Bethesda’s official store and participating retailers, the asking price for The Imperial City is likely to be around $20 (£13.50).

Promising new quests, PvP content and even weaponry, the maiden expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is certainly no slouch. Picking up the story threads left by one Daedric Prince known as Molag Bal, budding adventurers will be tasked with putting an end to his gluttonous spree.

Here’s a rundown of all the new content per Bethesda.

New PVE and PVP Content
Featuring six distinct Imperial Districts, battle against the forces of Molag Bal as well as the other Alliances.

Additional Dungeons
The extensive Imperial Sewers network offers new PVP and PVE challenges for small groups of adventurers, while White-Gold Tower and Imperial Prison challenge PVE adventurers with Normal and Veteran versions.

New Quests, Enemies, and Characters
Whether participating in massive PVP battles in the Imperial Districts, or adventuring in one of the new dungeons, players will be introduced to new quests and enemies, including the Xivkyn.

Addition of New Currency, Weapons, and Armor
Fight the forces of Molag Bal to plunder Tel Var Stones, a new form of currency you can use for exclusive Veteran Rank 16 weapons and armor, or search for new Treasure Vaults containing other rare finds.

The Imperial City will launch for PC and Mac owners first on August 31. Those who enjoy the console versions of The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited will have to wait until the following month.
