The new year is upon us, and it with it comes a meaty new update for The Elder Scrolls Online. The free patch adds features like home storage, the ability to customize the look of your equipment, and new Battlegrounds. Launching simultaneously, will be the Dragon Bones two-dungeon DLC pack, which will pit players against undead dragons and other intimidating enemies.
Here’s all the new features included in The Elder Scrolls Online Update 17:
- 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 two new arenas for the 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. Combat will also be improved, making it easier to identify and activate ability synergies.
And here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect from the Dragon Bones DLC pack:
“Dragon Bones will include two new dungeons – Scalecaller Peak and Fang Lair - available in both normal and veteran modes, with a veteran Hard Mode for each final boss. These new dungeons pit players against new and returning enemies, including plague-ridden ogres, powerful sorcerers and their undead creations, and even the reanimated bones of an ancient dragon. Players will be rewarded with new items and monster sets, collectibles, and achievements as well as a Renegade Dragon Priest mask, awarded just for entering one of the dungeons.”
The Elder Scrolls Online Update 17 is free, while the Dragon Bones DLC is available for ESO Plus members, or can be bought on it own.
The Elder Scrolls Online is available on PC, Mac, Xbox One, and PS4. Update 17 and Dragon Bones will be available sometime in February.
