ARK Tek Tier Released

Ark’s delayed 254 patch is due to arrive today, bringing with it the Tek Tier, which introduces science-fiction themed weapons, armor, and structures to the dino survival game. The new tech items can be acquired by besting boss monsters and learning Tek-based engrams, which will allow players to craft a number of new items using a futuristic (and massive) replicator workbench.

Introducing Homestead

There’s no place like home after a long day of adventuring. Homestead, The Elder Scrolls Online’s player housing system, is coming in February 2017. Learn what you can expect at launch, including how many homes there will be, how you get them, and details about home decorating and furniture crafting!

Homestead, included free with ESO’s next major game update, introduces the long-anticipated player housing system. It also includes furniture crafting and robust home decoration options. With nearly 40 unique homes to choose from and over 2,000 individual decorative and furniture options to make each home truly unique, Homestead will allow you to make Tamriel your own like never before.

You can begin your journey as a proud Tamriel homeowner when Homestead launches on PC/Mac, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in February, 2017. If you play ESO on PC/Mac and would like to help us test Homestead, you’ll get your chance to join us on the ESO PTS (Public Test Server) in January.
