Steal everything… with explosions!
One of the coolest questlines in both Oblivion and Skyrim was the Thieves Guild. Sure, it’s never been as memorable the Dark Brotherhood, but I always find planning heists and dealing with the politics of a band of thieves really cool.
Now we’ll be able to do that with friends, as ZeniMax has announced the next Elder Scrolls Online DLC will be The Elder Scrolls Online: Thieves Guild.
The DLC will add a whole load of stuff: new environments, new story content, a 12-player trial called the Maw of Lorkhaj, new criminal activities, new skills, and, of course, plenty of new loot.
There will also be an update to the core game coming alongside the DLC, which will include tweaks to many of the game’s systems, improved combat, and 64-bit builds for PC and Mac. Basically, the whole game is seemingly being improved.
The trailer is a bit explosive and not-at-all sneaky for my taste, but those few new environments shown look really neat.
I know a lot of people stopped playing TESO not long after launch (which is fair, the game’s always had problems), but the last DLC – Orsinium – was really cool. While I admittedly haven’t put much time into it, I found the new quests and environments it introduced were probably better made than a lot of the core game. I’m hopeful that Thieves Guild will live up to its single-player predecessors.
ZeniMax hasn’t announced pricing or a release date yet, but if it’s comparable to Orsinium, expect the price to be somewhere around 3,000 crowns, or £14.99.
