The massive multiplayer online role-playing video game, best promoted by its famous franchise of RPG games, will be expanding soon, as the upcoming DLC pack will take Elder Scrolls Online players to conquer the Imperial City.
It’s the first pack of additional content for the game since its release in April, 2014. Players have been exploring the continent of Tamriel, completing quests and collecting unique items to better improve their diversified characters. However, even a large world can become stale once discovered and searched under every nook and cranny.
ZeniMax Online Studios, the company responsible for developing The Elder Scrolls Online game, renamed to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, apparently wish for the name change to fulfill what it promises: unlimited gameplay. Or, at the very least, a much wider variety of content and larger world.
The first DLC pack, “The Imperial City”, will allow players to fight over control for the city against the other factions or against Molag Bal, a deity known as an infamous, cruel daedra for those familiar with the Elder Scrolls universe.
The pack is set to offer additional hours of gameplay, all included with fresh quests, unique items, new characters, PVE and PVP content, along with new forms of currency and collectible items branded with the Imperial City exclusive stamp. The promise is to bring more content in terms of both storyline and gameplaying, and keep players engaged in the fictional world created.
“The Imperial City” DLC pack will be available for free for Elder Scrolls Online Plus members or it can be purchased with in-game currency of 2,500 Crowns through the ESOTU Crown Store, which is relatively $20.
The additional content will be available for PC users on August 31st of this year, for Xbox One on September 15th and, just one day later, on September 16th for PlayStation 4. The game was released on consoles only last month in June, so it may be apparent that certain gamers have been accustomed to waiting an extra month for proper optimization and in order to not compete with its main platform.
The game itself can be played subscription free and has received mixed reviews since its release. It has shown certain qualities in gameplay with in-game partners or friends, but the both the story and additional content can be accessed well enough alone. So potential users are not discouraged to try it out for the first time by themselves.
It’s only a matter of difficulty, even though single gameplay might technically defeat the purpose of a massive multiplayer online role-playing video game.
