The first major expansion pack for Elder Scrolls Online is now live, at least if you’re a PC gamer. Imperial City, ESO’s first expansion of a planned string of quarterly releases, is now available for download. The expansion adds numerous extra quests, items, characters, and a new storyline involving a forced takeover of the titular city.
Rich Lambert, creative director for Elder Scrolls Online, says “The Imperial City is special. Not only because it’s our first DLC, but because it’s a huge milestone for us as a studio. We are now able to shift our focus from business model changes and console launch to creating new, meaningful content. It’s the first of many new quarterly DLC game packs, and we couldn’t be more thrilled.” Read more statements from Rich and the team in their blog post hyping the release.
If you have an ESO Plus membership, the expansion is free — just walk into the e-store and grab it. Otherwise, you can buy Imperial City separately for $20.
If you lean more toward consoles for your MMO fix, you won’t have to wait long: Imperial City’s XBox One and Playstation 4 versions will be coming in two weeks, on September 15th and 16th respectively.
