In the new expansion you'll be able join the Dark Brotherhood and "Become the deadliest assassin with a new and exclusive passive skill-line, defend the Brotherhood against a mysterious foe in hours of new story content, prove your skill for homicide in new repeatable assassination quests, and more," or so says the description.
