The sixth update to The Elder Scrolls Online weights in at 20-25GB, making it the heftiest update the game has ever seen. But for good reason: It implements two major new systems, Justice and Champion, and makes a significant number of changes to provisioning, pet and mount management, combat animations, and game balance.



Originally revealed late last year, the Champion and Justice systems offer a couple of new paths to glory in the world of Tamriel. The Champion System awards Champion Points to players of Veteran ranking, which can be put into a variety of new passive abilities that increase health, stamina, magicka, and add powerful bonuses based on the Warrior, Mage, and Thief guardian constellations.

The biggest change to the game is, hands down, the complete drop of the Subscription charge and has been replaced by the optional ESO plus option, where you can choose to spend real money if you wish on things such as weapons and armor or convenience items but this is totally optional and regular updates to ESO will be completely free.

The other big update is the aptly named justice system. The justice system brings law and order to Tamriel allow players to commit murder, steal items to sell to a fence and to bribe the guards to turn a blind eye to your heinous acts. As well as this, bugs have been fixed, animations improved and audio issues have been slaughtered where they slept.
