Elder Scrolls Online’s First Update of 2018 Drops Today, And I Can’t Wait To Kill Some Dragons

As everyone knows, I’m a big ESO guy. So you might guess that I’m pretty excited today because the good folks over at Zenimax threw on that thing I liked, and delivered some good good Valentine’s Day lovin’ to all of us a day early in the form of their first big updates of the year – the new Dragon Bones DLC and Update 17. It’s been a while since my dragon-slaying glory days back in Skyrim, so it’s a good thing hunting and killing dragons is like riding a bike (or so I’ve heard).

Copping the new Dragon Bones DLC is gonna get you two new dungeons – Scalecaller Peak and Fang Lair (ooh, baby), as well as an instant reward for anyone who simply sets foot into one of the new dungeons in the form of a Renegade Dragon Priest mask. Slap that bad boy on and fight through the new locales to earn new items, collectibles, achievements, and more. As always, if you’ve got ESO Plus – you don’t need to pay a dime for all this new hotness. If you don’t, it’s a paltry 1500 Crowns on ESO’s Crown Store for the normal version of the DLC to unlock. If you pony up to 4000 Crowns, you can get yourself the premium version of the DLC, which comes with a bunch of other bells and whistles. I bet there’s a cool exclusive horse involved. (Update: there is.)


If you’re not trying to open your wallet this month, you’ve still got Update 17 to look forward to – which includes the revamped outfit system, two new PvP BGs, a home storage system (finally) for all my Tamriel Bob Villas out there, and a bunch of other new tweaks and improvements for absolutely zero dollars and zero cents.

Dragon Bones and Update 17 are live right now on PC/Mac, and are headed to PS4 and Xbox on Feb 27th. For more details on everything here, check out the full article on the ESO site.
