Bethesda Announces The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind Expansion

Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind

Fans of Elder Scrolls Online rejoice, Bethesda has announced a huge new expansion dubbed Morrowind that will take players to the enormous island of Vvardenfell. The expansion releases globally on June 6th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

For players who already own The Elder Scrolls Online, you’ll be able to upgrade to Morrowind for $39.99. New players will be able to buy Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, which includes Tamriel Unlimited (i.e. the entire game), for $59.99. Of course ESO doesn’t require a subscription.

Morrowind includes a massive new zone (Vvardenfell), a main story that’s around 30 hours, a new Trial, a new player class (the Warden, a nature based magic class), and a new three team 4v4v4 PvP mode called Battlegrounds.

You can watch the announcement trailer below, and below that is complete information on content and pre-order bonuses/different editions courtesy the press release from Bethesda.

RETURN TO MORROWIND
Vvardenfell is the largest zone added to The Elder Scrolls Online since launch and utilizes the same geographic footprint as The Elder Scrolls III, including all key points of interest from the classic game. Players will embark on a dangerous journey through legendary locales in Vvardenfell, 700 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls III, from the docks of Seyda Neen, to the volcanic Ashlands, to dense, mushroom-filled forests, and through the glory of Vivec City, still under construction in this time period.

NEW CLASS – THE WARDEN
Players will harness nature-based magic to master the powerful new character class – The Warden. The Warden is the first new class since launch of ESO and true to ESO and the Elder Scrolls franchise, the player will have the freedom to select from a number of abilities that enable a variety of play styles. The Warden also introduces a devastating new combat ally – the War Bear – a ferocious fighter will stay by the Warden’s side through the most intense battles.

AN INCREDIBLE ELDER SCROLLS STORY
Set roughly 700 years prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls III, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will take gamers on a sweeping adventure through the legendary Vvardenfell, featuring iconic locations, characters, and storylines that will instill nostalgia with longtime Elder Scrolls fans and extend ESO’s narrative into a new chapter. Morrowind is in dire peril and it’s up to player heroes to help Vivec, the legendary warrior-poet and Guardian of Vvardenfell, solve the mystery of his mysterious illness, regain his strength – and save the world from ultimate destruction.

NEW PvP MODE — BATTLEGROUNDS
The Elder Scrolls Online is renowned for open world PvP battles, pitting hundreds of players in a massive battle for supremacy in Cyrodiil. The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will introduce a new PvP mode – Battlegrounds – intense 4v4v4 battles in arena-like environments. Players take the battle to the Ashlands to claim their place among the fiercest and most accomplished combat veterans in Tamriel.
