    While The Elder Scrolls VI is not coming anytime soon, fans of the series may be happy to learn that Bethesda continues to update the Elder Scrolls Online. The game's latest update, the eleventh one, is called Shadows of the Hist, will be out on August 1st on PC, and August 16th on PS4 and Xbox One, and it includes two new Argonian-themed dungeons, a style parlor, costume dyeing, and lots more.

    It’s hard to know what to be more excited for in the ESO: the major update that’s coming to the game in August or the long-awaited introduction of player housing that is in the works for early 2017. While players scour the in-game maps looking for signs of housing construction, ZeniMax is spilling the beans on August’s Update 11.


    The update will consist of both a base game patch and the optional Shadows of the Hist DLC. The patch isn’t super-exciting in and of itself, mostly concerning itself with quality-of-life improvements such as champion point increases and updated item sets. However, Shadows of the Hist should prove to be more exciting, with a style parlor, costume dyeing, and of course, the Cradle of Shadows and Ruins of Mazzatun three-player dungeons.

    Update 11 brings two new, Argonian-themed, four-player dungeons – Ruins of Mazzatun and Cradle of Shadows. These will be available for free to ESO Plus members, and will cost everyone else 1,500 crowns in the store.


    The Style Parlor is also being added, allowing you to buy appearance change and race change tokens. Using these, you’ll be able to change hairstyles, body markings, race, facial features, character voice and more. You’ll be able to change your character name, too, using a token.

    ESO Plus members get exclusive costume dyes that allow them to change the colour of their equipped costumes and hats at a dye station. These dyes can be rewards for unlocking achievements.

    Dye stamps are another thing being added. These come pre-loaded with a specific set of colours, and can be applied to costumes and hats as a one-use consumable. Finally, console players will be getting the long-requested text chat.


     When it arrives, there will be a base-game patch for all players that includes all of the changes listed below.
