Zenimax Online Studios detailed today the upcoming DLC game pack “Imperial City” for The Elder Scrolls Online. If you’re missing the monumental walls and buildings that we got to experience in Oblivion, that’s exactly what we’re going to see in the new expansion.

The DLC will be released on August 31st on PC and Mac, on September 15th on Xbox One, while PS4 gamers will have to wait for September 16th (oh my God, a timed exclusive!). It will be included in ESO Plus meberships, and it will be purchasable for those who don’t have one for 2,500 crowns in the game’s store.

Below you can find a list of the contents included in the DLC:

  • All content is available to players that are level 10 and up
  • A brand new PvP/PvE space, including the six Imperial City Districts

  • Treasure Vaults that contain new Veteran Rank 16 set jewelry and a chance for even rarer finds
  • Xivkyn racial motif style
  • New collectibles only available in Imperial City (pets, polymorphs, and a costume)

A patch will also be applied at the same time to the base game, and it will include the following elements:

  • 15% decrease in the amount of XP it takes to gain a Veteran Rank
  • 100% more XP for all public dungeons
  • 50% more XP for all Veteran Rank quests

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
