Oh Khajit, darling. That ‘do is so not you!

Bethesda detailed the additions coming to The Elder Scrolls Online in Update 11, which will release on August 1 for PC and on August 16 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The new content mostly revolves around giving players new options to play around with their appearance, which should please ESO’s 7 million players.

Update 11 introduces Race Change and Appearance Change tokens, which you can buy from ESO’s Crown Store, a premium marketplace (meaning you have to use real money). The Race Change token allows you to … well, change your race. The Appearance Change token will let you alter things like your hair, body shape, eye color, and voice. You can also buy a Name Change token if you’ve finally decided that Dragonb0rn isn’t really all that cool of moniker.

The update will also allow players to dye costumes, either through one-time use Dye Stamps in the Crown Store or through colors unlocked via achievements if you’re an ESO Plus subscriber. ESO Plus is the game’s premium subscription service, which gives players a 10 percent bonus to experience points and gold and access to all of the game’s downloadable content.

Outside of character customization, Update 11 also adds two new four-player dungeons. Cradle of Shadows has you helping the reptilian Argonian members of The Dark Brotherhood, while Ruins of Mazzatun has adventures trying to free slaves in the ruins of a “Puzzle City.”

The Elder Scrolls Online had a tough start when it launched in 2014, but Bethesda has worked hard to add new content and change in-game systems to be more convenient. The online role-playing game quickly ditched mandatory subscriptions, and it recently made the world feel more open by removing level restrictions.
