Bethesda shared some exciting news for anyone that was a fan of “The Elder Scrolls III,” by adding new ‘Morrowind’ content to the popular MMO “The Elder Scrolls Online”. New players to the MMO will be able begin in “The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind” and start a new character without having to complete any previous ESO content. And, since the original ESO game is included with The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, new players will have instant access to hundreds of hours of additional adventures throughout Tamriel. If you are an existing player, you will be able to upgrade and immediately journey to Vvardenfell to start new adventures.
Through October’s “One Tamriel” update, existing players will find level-appropriate content from the moment they step onto the island of Vvardenfell, regardless of level. Existing players can also choose to create a new character and begin anew. If you haven’t played in a while, Bethesda hopes that “The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind” will be the perfect chance for you to jump back into the game with your previous character.
The company stated that Vvardenfell “is the largest zone added to The Elder Scrolls Online since launch,” and utilizes the same geographic footprint as The Elder Scrolls III. This includes 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.
There will also be a new class added to the game. Players can use nature-based magic with 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.
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. The studio also released a trailer for the new content, which you can watch below, or on the official YouTube channel.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will also introduce a new PvP mode – Battlegrounds – which includes 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. The content will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and more details can be found on authorized retailers like Amazon.com.
