Ever thought that The Elder Scrolls Online was missing something? No? Well Bethesda obviously thought there was as the first major DLC for the year is now with us…and it brings in tons of opportunity.
Available from today on both Xbox One and PS4, The Elder Scrolls Online has received Homestead, a free update that will allow you to now purchase apartments, homes, manors – and even an island – in Tamriel. Becoming available via both in-game Gold and through the Crown Store, your homes can be customized with more than 2,000 items, letting you decorate to your own liking, adding in the likes of furniture, décor, books, barrels and a whole lot more.
Homestead releases with nearly 40 homes to choose from, each having been styled after one of the game’s 10 playable races. If you would like to grab your own Tamriel dig, then you’ll find the first is free to purchase…so long as you can manage to scrape through an initial tutorial quest. Once that introductory quest is completed, you’ll be able to climb the property ladder, moving on up and owning multiple homes of various sizes that can be shared across all of their in-game characters.
But owning a house is only the beginning for those getting involved in Homestead, for we all know that a house is not a home until you decorate it. Players can make their new residences truly unique by acquiring and placing more than 2,000 items with the game’s new Housing Editor. Furniture and other décor items are available through in-game vendors and the Crown Store, but should you wish, you can also craft your own using existing crafting skills. Available décor includes tables, chairs, chests, beds, bars, counters as well as decorating items like books, food, barrels, paintings, light fixtures, plants, trees, and more.
So there we have it, Homestead, the latest major update for The Elder Scrolls Online is now with us. What kind of house will you live in?
