Elder Scrolls Online gets a new chapter today, as Bethesda releases the brand new Elsweyr DLC.
Available now on PS4 and Xbox One, Elsweyr is the latest part of the Season of the Dragon adventure.
Needless to say, players will spend their time battling huge dragons and defending the Khajiit homeland from an “ancient evil”.
According to the patch notes for the companion update, the DLC adds over 30 hours of quest content, as well as new locations to explore, 50 Achievements and Trophies, and lots more.
That’s on top of the Necromancer character class, which can summon undead creatures to attack enemies.
“This new class uses the power of death to deal with any situation,” Bethesda explains. “Necromancers feature a unique set of abilities that use corpses as an alternate resource, with an emphasis on positional-based gameplay and a deep mastery curve.”
Interestingly, some of the Necromancer’s skills are seen as a criminal act, which means you’ll potentially alert guards if you use it at the wrong time.
For more on the Elsweyr update, check out the patch notes below…
