The Dark Brotherhood returns in the recently unveiled DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.

Dark Brotherhood 04-26-2016


In the "Dark Brotherhood" DLC, players will be able to take on assassination quests, utilize a new passive skill-line and also engage in a new story mission that let's you roam around with your favorite group of darkly-clad assassins and defend them from a new and mysterious foe.

A recent press release from Bethesda Softworks went into more detail:

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.
In other words, a whole bunch of content is coming. This DLC will be quietly creeping onto your Xbox One June 14th. It will automatically be available if you have an active Elder Scrolls Online Plus membership, or can be bought for 2,000 crowns within the in-game store.
