Now Playing: The Elder Scrolls Online - Welcome Homestead Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Following its release earlier this month on PC, The Elder Scrolls Online's free player-housing update, Homestead, launches today on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

With the update, players will be able to purchase and customize their own homes in the game world. The homes are instanced, so you won't be competing with other plans to secure a plot of land.

There are around 40 different options in Homestead, ranging from a small room at an inn to "huge manor estates with vast outdoor areas." You can even buy an island. Each one is themed around one of Elder Scrolls' 10 races, though there aren't any restrictions on who can buy which one. You can own more than one, but only one of each type, and they'll all be shared across your account.

Once you've acquired a home, you'll be able to customize it with over 2,000 different pieces of furniture and decorations, including chairs, beds, books, paintings, lights, and so on. These items can be purchased or crafted (crafted items can then be sold to other players), allowing them to be freely placed wherever you want. Most items can be purchased with gold or Crowns.

All players will receive a free home when the update launches by completing a tutorial quest. Read GameSpot's previous Homestead coverage to learn more, while you can see it in action through the video above.

The Elder Scrolls Online's Morrowind expansion comes out in June. Check out GameSpot's report on that expansion to learn more about what it adds and more.
