While The Elder Scrolls VI is not coming anytime soon, fans of the series may be happy to learn that Bethesda continues to update The Elder Scrolls Online.
The game’s latest update, the eleventh one, is called Shadows of the Hist, and it includes two new Argonian-themed dungeons, a style parlor, costume dyeing, and lots more.
The new new four-player dungeons are called Ruins of Mazzatun and Cradle of Shadows. These will be free for players with an active ESO Plus membership, or can be purchased through the DLC Dungeon Pack, which will go for 1,500 crowns.
Both dungeons include normal and veteran difficultly modes, along with new item sets, more achievements, and special rewards, among other things.
As for the style parlor, this adds a new microtransaction that lets players change their appearance or race. Players will be able to “completely redefine” their character’s appearance, including their hair style and color, as well as face, body markings, eye color, age, and voice. Pricing was not announced, however.
The new Elder Scrolls Online update also lets you change your character’s name by spending real-world money, but again, pricing details were not shared. Other new items included with the upcoming update are more hairstyle, adornments, and markings (to buy), as well as a Dye Station that lets you dye your equipped costume and hats.
Update 11 launches on August 1 for PC and Mac, and comes to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 16. When it arrives, there will be a base-game patch for all players that includes all of the changes listed below.
