Dark Brotherhood Details and Release Date for The Elder Scrolls Online

Bethesda Softworks today released additional details for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited’s upcoming DLC game pack, Dark Brotherhood, which will launch on May 31st for PC and June 14th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Dark Brotherhood is included with an active ESO Plus membership or will be available for 2,000 crowns via the ESO Crown Store.

PC Players can experience Dark Brotherhood prior to release on the ESO PTS (Public Test Server) beginning today.

Additional DLC Details:

A Covenant of Blood and Shadows
Join the merciless Dark Brotherhood of the Gold Coast, prowling in the shadows cast by the two great powers of the region. Though at the height of their power, the Dark Brotherhood faces a grave threat in the form of a mysterious black-armored warrior capable of bringing down their best agents. Venture forth for another exciting chapter of The Elder Scrolls Online as you carve a bloody swath across Tamriel in the name of the Dark Brotherhood!

Explore the Gold Coast
The westernmost region of Cyrodiil, the Gold Coast, was last seen by Elder Scrolls players in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Come explore the cities of Anvil and Kvatch during the Interregnum, when the region is awash in intrigue and deadly conspiracies!

Murder for Profit
Sometimes the best way to deal with a troublesome person is permanent removal. As a Dark Brotherhood assassin, you’ll be tasked to fill that need. From simple assassination contracts to killing sprees on the blood-soaked streets of Tamriel’s sprawling cities, carve your path into the good graces of the Dark Brotherhood. The truly skilled may engage in special missions at the behest of their dark masters and fulfill a Black Sacrament, slaying a victim named by the Night Mother herself.

New Assassins’ Passive Skills
This all-new skill line relates to murdering citizens and allowing the Shadows of Sithis to protect you from suffering consequences. Because those deaths were sanctioned by Sithis, you are the hand of the Void; you are the embodiment of death itself. The rules of Justice are for those bound by Nirn, not those who are directed by the ideals of Sithis.

Dark Brotherhood-Exclusive Rewards and Items
Earn new items through in-game quests and browse Dark Brotherhood-themed items coming to the Crown Store soon.

BLACKROOM – The Return of John Romero and Adrian Carmack to FPS

John Romero and fellow id Software co-founder Adrian Carmack today announced BLACKROOM, a shooter that harkens back to classic FPS play with a mixture of exploration, speed, and weaponized combat. Use fast, skillful movement to dodge enemy attacks, circle-strafe your foes, and rule the air as you rocket jump in the single- and multiplayer modes. Powered by Unreal Engine 4 and fully moddable on PC, the game is being developed with community at its core, starting with today’s launch of a Kickstarter campaign to fund development.

In the single-player campaign, step into the shoes of Santiago Sonora, Chief hNode Engineer at HOXAR, Inc., the world’s foremost creator of holographic simulations. The company’s BLACKROOM technology allows users to be anywhere at any time, creating fully-realized holographic worlds that are indistinguishable from reality, all inside of a giant black room. When testing of their new leading-edge Predictive Memory technology reveals troubling anomalies that blend the real world with the virtual, you’re sent in to investigate and are swept across a dangerous array of simulations developed for BLACKROOM users, from medieval castles to horror sets. Peering into your mind and tapping into your deepest memories and fears, however, it’s clear that the BLACKROOM is not all fun and games.

BLACKROOM is targeted for release in winter 2018 on PC, DRM-free and on Steam.
