The latest expansion to the vast MMO world of The Elder Scrolls Online has been revealed, and it will bring longtime fans of the series back to familiar lands.
An announcement trailer has been released for The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, which sees players returning to the island of Vvardenfell 700 years prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The new chapter will offer over 30 hours of new gameplay, a new player class, new PvP mode, and more.
You can find more details on the Morrowind expansion and watch the trailer below.
This June, the next Chapter in The Elder Scrolls Online will begin. Return to the iconic island of Vvardenfell for over 30 hours of adventure in a brand new location, with a new class, a new PvP mode, a new Trial, and so much more.
The fate of Morrowind hangs in the balance and you must take up the mantle of a hero to help Vivec, the legendary warrior-poet and Guardian of Vvardenfell, save the world from a deadly Daedric threat. Set roughly 700 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, ESO’s new Chapter takes you to familiar locations as you attempt to solve the mystery of Vivec’s mysterious illness and restore his strength. Travel from the volcanic Ashlands to the mushroom-filled forests, and walk the streets of Vivec City, still under construction at this point in time.
With the largest landmass addition to date, a brand-new player class, and an intense new PvP mode, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is the perfect entry point for new players and a great way for veterans to continue their journey.
Those who already own ESO can simply upgrade their experience and immediately jump into the new Chapter when it launches on June 6, 2017 for all platforms, including on PC in Japan. And thanks to the One Tamriel update from last October, new players can also sail directly into Morrowind and play with other adventurers of all levels. The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind also includes all the original ESO content, so new players will have access to hundreds of hours of excitement throughout Tamriel. Existing players can choose to carry their characters over to Morrowind, or start fresh on a new adventure with a new face.
And you may indeed want to give a new character a go, as Morrowind introduces the first new class since ESO launched. The new Warden class wields powerful nature-based magic and, true to the Elder Scrolls franchise, can be customized with a number of abilities to suit your playstyle. Explore the island of Vvardenfell and charge headfirst into battle knowing your Warden’s ferocious War Bear always has your back.
Morrowind also introduces a new Trial and PvP mode for you to check out. Enter the Telvanni tower of Tel Fyr with your strongest allies to battle your way through the Halls of Fabrication, and explore a part of the Clockwork City in a challenging new 12-player Trial. Or, you can head to the Ashlands to take on fellow players in exciting 4v4v4 battles in arena-like environments. These highly competitive fast-paced matches will feature your choice in a variety of game types across three different maps.
Four different editions of Morrowind will be available at launch: the Standard Edition, the Upgrade Edition, the Digital Collector’s Edition and a physical Collector’s Edition. Get all the details on what’s included in each edition here, or you can check out our pre-order FAQ here.
