Build your own home in The Elder Scrolls Online next year
Bethesda's MMO is scheduled to release a free Homestead update.
The Elder Scrolls Online has revealed a rough release date for its free home customisation DLC, Homestead, that it first showed off at E3 back in June.
Set to release in February 2017, Homestead will feature 40 different homes that will be available across ESO's world map, also containing 2,000 individual furniture and decorative items with which to personalise your home, as well as allowing you to proudly display special monster-themed busts in your home as proof of your victories against some of Tamriel's most difficult challenges.
"No two player-decorated home interiors will be identical in Homestead. You can put your own personal touch on every home you own by crafting or buying furniture and decorations, and you can place them wherever you like with the game's new Housing Editor," said Bethesda on the game's website.
As shown in the trailer, the available houses will be styled after each of the game's ten specific races and will vary in size. They will be available to purchase with in-game gold or the player can choose to buy them with credit through the Crown store. They will come in two variations, the first being unfurnished and the second being furnished and obviously costing a little bit extra.
Bethesda also informed players not to worry about rushing to find the perfect spot for your new abode as "houses will be instanced". They go on to mention that houses will be tied to accounts and not characters, which means players can use them across all of their characters. Players will also be able to fast travel to their houses via the World map.
Of course new home owners can also invite guests round to check the place out and if you are really trusting you can allow fellow adventurers to help decorate your home. Not only that, but you craft your own furniture which can be sold to other players or possibly given as a house warming gift too. Not to worry about your possessions getting stolen though, as Bethesda did state that "homes are secure - other players are not able to break into homes and steal items."
Homestead is set to release February 2017, and for more information check out the game's official website here. Are homes a worthy addition to the expansive world of Elder Scrolls Online?
