The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind Coming June 6

With its first ever "expansion" The Elder Scrolls Online is adding an enormous amount of content to the MMORPG on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Mac on June 6 with Morrowind.

New players can start fresh right on the shores of Vvardenfell with no need to touch the current game's content, and the game will be offered at several different price points for different versions and upgrades.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind takes place 700 years prior to the events in The Elder Scrolls III, so players can expect to see many recognizable faces and places. While some locations may be different (that town may still be a fledgling settlement, etc) Vvardenfell has been meticulously replicated for its new life in The Elder Scrolls Online.

 

Morrowind adds the game's first new class, the Warden, which wields nature-based magic and the ability to summon a towering bear companion. PVP will also be getting some significant new options with 4v4v4 arena-style battlegrounds, where players can participate in more structured combat than the giant world war in Cyrodiil currently available.

Players who already own The Elder Scrolls Online can upgrade for $39.99, while new players can get the entire game (includes Tamriel Unlimited and Morrowind) for $59.99.

Collectors editions will also be available in both physical and digital forms. The physical edition is $99.99 and comes with a Colossus statue, map, game case, journal, and a smattering of digital rewards that are also in the digital collector's editon ($79.99) such as a spider pet, armored war horse, gear customization options, emotes, and a Grey Bear for the new Warden class.
