Imperial City Specifics

So what's the gist of Imperial City?

Molag Bal and the forces of Coldharbour have taken control of the crown jewel of Cyrodiil: the Imperial City. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited’s first DLC game pack features hours of compelling story content, expanded Veteran Ranks, a new currency for new epic gear, two new dungeons, never-before-seen monsters, craftable item sets, and more.

Here are the details of what you can expect:

  • A brand new PvP/PvE space, including the six Imperial City Districts
  • One new Imperial City PvP Public Dungeon: The Imperial Sewers
  • Two new PvE Imperial City group dungeons with Normal and Veteran versions: White-Gold Tower and Imperial City Prison
  • The Tel Var Stone system
    • "...the currency used to trade for mighty Veteran Rank 16 armor sets."
  • 23 completely new Veteran Rank 16 item sets, only available in Imperial City
  • Treasure Vaults that contain new Veteran Rank 16 set jewelry and a chance for even rarer finds
  • Xivkyn racial motif style
  • New collectibles only available in Imperial City (pets, polymorphs, and a costume)
  • All content is available to players that are level 10 and up

Luckily, all players will receive a significant patch when Imperial City launches. It includes some pretty significant changes. These are the highlights they point out:

  • 15% decrease in the amount of XP it takes to gain a Veteran Rank
  • 100% more XP for all public dungeons
  • 50% more XP for all Veteran Rank quests
  • 20% more XP in Craglorn

  • Racial Passive improvements
  • Mundus Stone buff improvements
  • Glass racial motif style
  • Improvements to existing item sets
  • The ability to hide mount visual upgrades
  • New crafting skill line passives

The ESOTU Console Beta Has Started!

The worldwide console launch of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is on June 9th, and in preparation the console beta test has started! The beta test opened on Thursday, April 23rd, at 10AM EDT and ends on Monday, April 27th, at 10AM EDT. It's a limited, closed public beta. Invitations were sent to some - not all - of the people who signed up. However there's no NDA, so testers are welcome to stream their play and post screenshots.



If you were invited, start downloading now: ESOTU is an incredibly massive game, both in terms of sheer scope and the data required to bring you this truly enormous experience. At the moment, the client will exceed a 50GB Blu-ray disc which means there will also be a large day-one patch that is somewhere in the region of 15GB.

Don't forget, the PS4 version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is available for pre-order now on the North American PlayStation Store (Europe is soon to follow), and the Xbox One version will be available for pre-orders in the Xbox Marketplace in May. You may also pre-order both versions via select retailers.

For more information on the ESOTU Console Beta, see this post on the official site.

Tamriel Unlimited PC to Console Transfer Now Available!

Today eligible players received emails informing them that The Elder Scrolls® Online: Tamriel Unlimited™ for Console with account copy is available for pre-purchase for $20.00 at account.elderscrollsonline.com/store when logged in using an eligible The Elder Scrolls Online account.

This special offer to pre-purchase a digital copy of an Xbox One and/or PlayStation 4 version of the game will only be available on the store for 30 (thirty) days. After the 30-day period, you will no longer be able to purchase this special digital copy of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for console or copy your PC/Mac account to console in any other way.

Eligible players are able to purchase either console format of their choice or can purchase both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. When a player purchases a console transfer, all their characters are moved to both the North American and European console megaservers. The original account will still be available: the process takes an exact copy of your PC / Mac account and replicates it. From the point of the transfer, the original PC / Mac account will remain 'as is', whilst the new console account will be 100 percent separate. Progress made on one account will not affect the progress made on the other account.

Please note that if you take part in this offer, your character and account details will not be copied immediately upon pre-purchasing The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited for Console with account copy. Keep an eye on your email for more information on the account copy process as well as your digital game code.

This special offer is only available from the The Elder Scrolls Online PC/Mac Store between April 9, 2015 and May 9, 2015. You can find more information on eligibility requirements, transfer restrictions, and redemption instructions at help.elderscrollsonline.com.
