The Elder Scrolls Online will get player housing next year

Console players can now sink their teeth into The Elder Scrolls Online: Dark Brotherhood expansion PC players enjoyed, but there will be more to look forward to next year. According to IGN, three new pieces of DLC content will arrive in 2017, including the much-requested player housing feature.

Elder Scrolls Online game director Matt Firor confirmed housing would be added as part of a release schedule emphasizing small DLC packs. An Argonian Dungeon Pack will also be featured next year, along with a barber shop that lets players customize their hairstyles.

“It’s interesting to see what happens when you take away the subscription model away,” Firor said. “You don’t see a hardcore playstyle – like playing for six months and then quitting – we don’t see that. We have a lot of players who will play for two or three weeks because they want to get through a zone and then stop. Then they come back two months later for another month, because there’s no pressure to play all of it at once. Our DLC packs cater to that, because they’re smaller, bite-size chunks of story and associated quests.”

The Elder Scroll Online’s player housing will arrive in Q1 2017. Meanwhile, the Dark Brotherhood expansion launches for consoles today.
