Elder Scrolls Online’s Imperial City DLC detailed

The first official expansion for Elder Scrolls Online has finally been detailed! Coming first to PC/Mac, then to consoles in September, the Imperial City expansion adds a horde of new PVP and PVE content. The pack will be available for beta testing on PC later this month.

And boy, has the city changed! Now fallen to dark forces, the Imperial City is under the control of Molag Bal. Comprising of the six Imperial Districts, the Imperial Sewers and the central White-Gold Tower, you’ll be able to explore and fight against both Molag Bal’s forces and enemy players. By fighting in the city you’ll be able to earn Tel Var stones that allow you to purchase the strongest Veteran Rank 16 gear, but if you’re killed in PVP your opponent can take your stones for their own purposes. This content comes in two parts – a base-game patch that everyone can access, and the DLC game pack.
