The newest DLC for The Elder Scrolls Online, Dark Brotherhood is now available on PC, and will be available on June 14th for PS4 and Xbox One players. For the first time, players will be able to join the sinister Dark Brotherhood guild and engage in some bloodthirsty activities.

A merciless guild of assassins rises to power in Tamriel, and your murderous talents make you a prime recruit.

From the bustling port city of Anvil to the Great Cathedral of Kvatch, the business of the Brotherhood consists of murder and mayhem—and business is good! Join the Brotherhood, enter the Sanctuary, and accept your first contract from the mysterious Speaker. Kill well, assassin!
