ESO’s First DLC Game Pack: Imperial City

Exciting news for all travelers of Tamriel. Today ZeniMax Online shared the first details on The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited’s first DLC Game Pack, Imperial City, coming to PC/Mac on August 31st, Xbox One on September 15th, and PlayStation 4 on September 16.

The Imperial City, the heart of the Cyrodiilic Empire, has fallen to Daedric Prince Molag Bal and now all three alliances must battle not only against the Daedric forces, but each other. Imperial City, the first DLC game pack for The Elder Scrolls® Online: Tamriel Unlimited™, adds hours of additional gameplay featuring new areas, quests, enemies, and exclusive items for those adventuring on their own, in small groups, or with hundreds of others.

Imperial City will be included with an active ESO Plus membership. See more of content in the trailer above, and if you’re playing on PC/Mac, you can get a first taste of the content next week on the PTS servers. Stay tuned to ElderScrollsOnline.com for more details on the game’s new features, and be on the lookout for the full Imperial City PTS patch notes later this month.

The Console Gamer’s Guide to The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

The day has finally come. The portal is now open for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gamers to enter the vast world of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. All you need to do is step through.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

Now, it’s understandable if the prospect seems a bit daunting. After all, there aren’t a whole lot of massively multiplayer RPGs available for consoles. And there are places where ESOTU diverges from its console predecessors. But there’s plenty that’s familiar, too. This is an Elder Scrolls game, after all, which means that if you’ve played Morrowind, Oblivion or Skyrim, you’ll find lots of things to make you feel right at home.

WHAT’S FAMILIAR

Take the control scheme as just one example. If you’ve played previous Elder Scrolls games on consoles, you’re going to notice plenty of similarities with ESOTU’s controls. You’ll be jumping, sneaking, swinging weapons, and firing off blasts from your staff just like you’re used to… and in first- or third-person perspective, too. Combat is every bit as real-time as before, and relies on the same pools of health, stamina and magicka. You’ll even encounter many of the same creatures from previous games – though of course they may look a bit different. (A thousand years can lead to some serious genetic drift.)

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – Console Launch and New Trailer!

Console launch day is here! To celebrate the worldwide release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited on Xbox One and PS4, we have a letter from Game Director Matt Firor, a new gameplay trailer, and launch week festivities — including contests — to share with you.

We’re excited to welcome you to ESOTU’s official launch on Xbox One and PS4. To commemorate this important day, we have a special message to share from Game Director Matt Firor…

Today is a huge day for console Elder Scrolls players, as well as all of us here at ZeniMax Online Studios. Today marks the release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. It’s finally time to invite our console community to experience Tamriel in the remote Second Era. We’ve put a ton of time and energy into making the console versions of ESOTU polished and fun – featuring a completely new User Interface specifically designed for console controller play, as well as a custom voice chat system engineered to make meeting and interacting with other players easy and fun.

I want to take this moment to thank our community of fans and players, without whom this moment could not have happened. Thank you all so much for your dedication, ideas, commentary, and general awesomeness. You are the reason why we do what we do. And of course, kudos to the team at ZeniMax Online, who have been working long hours to ensure that ESOTU on consoles is amazing and fun.

But we’re not done with the launch, of course. We’re continuing to work on new content, which we’ll talk about soon after console launch. We’re committed to always fix problems as we find them, and continuing to ensure that the community is happy and having fun. You are all in for a great time in Tamriel, and we are honored and excited to be the studio that has brought you this experience. Log in, meet some new friends, and adventure through Tamriel. Enjoy the ride! And as always, stay tuned for the next interesting things that we’ll be creating for you. – Matt
