Update 11 Live For PC/Mac
Update 11, including the Shadows of the Hist DLC, is now available on PC/Mac. This update is coming to consoles on August 16 2016.
BASE GAME PATCH
The base game is getting improvements including the option to change your race, appearance and name.
You can now buy a Name Change token from the Crown Store. Once purchased these tokens may be utilized at the character select screen to select a new name for one character. The token will not be consumed until a valid name is successfully chosen, and players canceling the change will retain their token accordingly.
Appearance Change tokens allows for complete modification of the character’s appearance, including but not limited to hair styles and colors, adornments, face and body markings, facial features, eye color, age, body and face shape, as well as selected voice.
Race Change tokens allows for a change in the character’s race and appearance. When changing your character’s race, any Skill Points spent on the Racial Skill Line will be refunded and the progress made in that Skill Line will be transferred to the new race.

In addition to the option of race changes there has been a general balancing of racial passives.
