Today Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players of The Elder Scrolls Online receive the first major DLC of 2017 – Homestead – a free update that will allow them to buy apartments, homes, manors – and even an island – in Tamriel. In other words, Tamriel Unlimited is no more. Please welcome Homebuilding Unlimited. Available for both in-game Gold and through the Crown Store, your sweet, sweet home can be customized with more than 2,000 decorating items, including furniture, décor, books, barrels and a whole lot more. I heard that tomes of magic are really trending!
The Homestead First Look trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online:
Tons of Homes – First One Free!
Homestead releases with nearly 40 instanced homes to choose from, each styled after one of the game’s 10 playable races. Anyone who would like to grab their own Tamriel digs can get one for free through an initial tutorial quest. Once that introductory quest is completed, players can move on and up, owning multiple homes of various sizes that can be shared across all of their in-game characters.
Not Your Friend’s House
Owning a house is only the beginning of Homestead – it’s not truly a home until you decorate it. And don't forget to invite a bunch of friends and socialize. Oh, sorry! This content is not available yet. It's the theme of the next DLC!
Players can make their new residences truly unique by acquiring and placing more than 2,000 items with the game’s new Housing Editor. Can I have a few Kajiits hanging on my walls? I think they would make a nice decoration. Furniture and other décor are available through in-game vendors and the Crown Store, but players can also craft their 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 (hm, Kajiits aren't listed here). Looking for more utility? Players can also place items like combat dummies, crafting tables and assistants in their homes. Okay, I can have them as assistants at least.
For all of the details on Homestead, how players can access their first free home, and the basics on decorating, please visit the official website.
