Only a week after the Dark Brotherhood made its way to The Elder Scrolls Online‘s console servers, the folks at ZeniMax Online Studios are looking towards the future with our first preview of the game’s next DLC: Shadows of the Hist.
If you’re one of the players who have bemoaned the single player focus of recent DLCs, this is going to be one to pay attention to, as in addition to some enticing base game updates, we’re going to be getting the two dungeons from our Vvardenfell datamining article and some updates to older trials.
As with our previous updates, The Elder Scrolls Online’s Update 11 will come in two parts: the DLC dungeon pack, and the base game patch.The DLC dungeon pack Shadows of the Hist features two, all-new Argonian-themed group dungeons to challenge you and your groupmates, and the base game patch will allow you to change your appearance or race, and introduces a wide selection of new hair styles and adornments!
Two Dungeon DLC Pack
Included in the DLC are the two new Argonian dungeons, Cradle of Shadows, a Dark Brotherhood battle against a group of rogue assassins, and Ruins of Mazzatun, a mysterious “Puzzle City” belonging the Argonian Xit-Xaht tribe. Both dungeons will feature normal and veteran modes and add their own new monster sets to the game.
Base Game Updates
Beyond the DLC, the DLC will also introduce several hotly anticipated features into the base game’s capabilities.
- Trial Updates for Hel Ra Citadel, Aetherian Archive, and Dragonstar Arena
- Cyrodiil Town Captures
- Appearance, Race, and Name Change

We’ll be discussing some of Update 11’s additional features at a later date, including new motifs, new item sets, improved facial effects, the ability to dye costumes, and as always, many changes and improvements to existing content. Watch for additional information on our website and social channels, and get ready to join us on the test server (PTS) soon!
