The Elder Scrolls Online has had the Homestead DLC added through its latest update, which is 20.5GB in size.
Version 1.21 is a behemoth of a beast, but offers players the chance to turn Tarmiel into The Sims; you will now be able to purchase homes, apartments or islands with game gold. There will be 39 different properties available (uniquely themed according to the official announcement), and over 2,000 bits and bobs to
clutter decorate them with.
And just in case that’s not enough, they’ve also added Master Crafting Writs, four new Motifs, and updated several sources of itemization in Cyrodiil and the Imperial City.
Highlights include :
Update 13 features Homestead – player housing is coming to The Elder Scrolls Online! As such, you may now acquire and decorate homes across Tamriel. Homestead features 39 homes spread throughout many zones in the base game. Homes can be found in a variety of interesting locations across Tamriel, and each is available for purchase.
Except for your first entry-level inn room, which is free after completing a short quest, all of the initially-available homes or inns from other alliances can be purchased with in-game gold or crowns.
- You may own one of every home, all the way up to all 39 available at launch!
- Homes are shared across all characters on your account.
- Homes are split into several tiers, by size:
- Inn Rooms: 3 total, 1 for each alliance
- Apartments: 3 total, 1 for each alliance
- Small Homes: 10 total, 1 for each of the 10 playable races
- Medium Homes: 10 total, 1 for each of the 10 playable races
- Large Homes: 10 total, 1 for each of the 10 playable races
- Manors: 3 total, 1 for each alliance
- All 36 of the apartments, homes and manors can all be purchased with either gold (as long as the achievement prerequisites are met) or crowns.
- Dueling is allowed in homes, but is disabled inside inn rooms and apartments.
You can now craft furnishings for yourself, your friends, or to sell to others!
- To craft a furnishing, you will need to obtain a specific furnishing plan, similar to the way existing Provisioning recipes work.
- Plans can be found in containers across the world, purchased from certain merchants, dropped from monsters, or even obtained from pickpocketing (or murdering) Tamrielic citizens.
We’ve written about a lot of patches recently, with some like Watch Dogs 2 extending to a thousand odd words. Now, we thought that was long, but it turns out that The Elder Scrolls Online’s latest has trumped that, coming in at a mega trillion words (ok, slight exaggeration, but you’ll see what we mean when you follow the linky below). So excuse us for the abbreviated version above.
Oh, and before we forget: the Morrowind expansion is releasing on June 6th. Be there or be…somewhere else.
