If you’re not into reading page upon page of text about the changes and additions that came with Update 1.6, Bethesda has published a trailer to warm you up. The video shows off some of the most remarkable stuff the patch has made possible, including the Justice and Champion systems.
Update 6 is finally live. An enormous list of changes and additions goes with it, as you can imagine. After all, we’re talking about 20-25 GBs of data. The biggest news are the implementation of the first phase of the Justice System, and the third phase of the Champion System. Then there’s the gameplay improvements, fixes and rebalancing – every ability has been changed in some way, so you’ll get a free skill and attribute reset.
Provisioning has been remade, Collections have a new UI, and the Crown Store is open for browsing (but not buying – that has to wait until Tamriel Unlimited is up). The full list of changes can be found on the official forums, but be wary – it will take a while to sift through.
Update 1.6 is around the corner – it’s due to arrive March 2nd, and it’s going to bring with it a lot of changes. One of the biggest additions to the game is the Justice System, which handles criminal activities.
In an update to the official blog, Bethesda gave us a sneak peek of the key bindings for the Xbox ONE version of The Elder Scrolls Online. The controls seem pretty natural and comfy, so we have to ask – when is gamepad support coming to the PC version of the game?
The PS4/Xbox ONE version is due June 9th, while the sub-free version is going to hit PC on March 17th. The reason the console ports took so long is that they “wanted to make sure the console version didn’t feel like a port, but like a game designed specifically for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4”, which is great to hear.
As the launch of Tamriel Unlimited grows closer, the developers have decided to honour long standing players with gifts. The latest in line is the Mask of Cheerful Slaughter, as worn by the lord of madness himself. They’re going to start sending them later in February, so keep your eyes on the in-game mail.
Those who have had a subscription for three months have already gotten the High Hrothgar Wraith pet. Players with six months worth of subs have gotten the Loyal Dwarven Sphere. And then there’s this creepy new thing.
That’s not all though. If you maintain a subscription right until the game goes buy-once-play-forever, and you have more than 300 days of subscription to your name on that date (March 16th), you’ll receive a Striped Senche mount, which won’t be sold in the Crown Store. The only way to get it is by being the most loyal of all TESO players.
With all four parts of the Three Fates cinematic trailer released, Bethesda has gone and made a supercut version that seamlessly blends all of them into one, twenty-three-minute-long spectacle. You can watch it in 720p right now, if you’d like to see the three alliances duke it out for the Imperial City.
