    Those lovable (okay, vicious) assassin types from the Dark Brotherhood will be emerging from doorways to join The Elder Scrolls Online from 31 May on PC. In fact, if you have access to the Elder Scrolls Online public test server on PC, the Dark Brotherhood stuff can be played around with from today.

    Anybody with an active Elder Scrolls Online Plus membership gets this DLC as part of their subscription. People who want to buy it separately will have to shell out 2,000 crowns; which I believe translates to $20.00 USD in real life money. There’s also a ‘Collector’s Bundle’ available for 4,000 crowns that comes with “the Highland Wolf Mount, the Sylvan Nixad pet, and five Crown Experience Scrolls.”

    Here’s what the Dark Brotherhood DLC will add to the game. You can read more at the following link.

    • Access to join the Dark Brotherhood and become an assassin for hire
    • The Gold Coast, available to characters of all levels, where you can explore Anvil and Kvatch for the first time since The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
    • A new passive skill line, exclusive to members of the Dark Brotherhood
    • Hours of exciting story content and quests that will have you revisiting your favorite areas of Tamriel
    • New repeatable activities, including:
      • Bounty Quests: The Dark Brotherhood is not the only group on the Gold Coast who offers gold for martial expertise. Daily bounties await you in the cities of Anvil and Kvatch.
        • Take on these quests to conquer delves, battle in the Kvatch Arena, or vanquish a monstrous minotaur!
      • Contract Kill Quests: Elam Drals, the dry-humored Dark Elf assassin that maintains the Dark Brotherhood’s books, diligently keeps a ledger of those whose deaths can be bought with mere gold.
        • Travel across the length and breadth of Tamriel to assassinate marked targets or engage in bloody sprees at the behest of the Dark Brotherhood.
      • Sacrament Quests: Speaker Terenus, an agent of the Black Hand, haunts the Gold Coast Sanctuary to offer the most sacred of missions to assassins of the Dark Brotherhood.
        • Breaking into secured subterranean locations to slaughter targets invoked by the performance of the Black Sacrament. Avoid guards, disable traps, and complete bonus objectives to achieve the highest levels of prestige and reward.
