ESO Expansion Morrowind Announced
The first “expansion” for the Elder Scrolls Online has been announced and it is Morrowind. It’s due for release on June 6 2017.
Morrowind will be a full expansion, which means that you will need to purchase it before you can access the new content. It is not a DLC, so you won’t get access to it with an ESO Plus subscription.
Physical Collector’s Edition ($99.99)
This premier edition is for the ultimate fan and includes the Discovery Pack, all premium digital content, the Elder Scrolls Online base game, and the following exclusive collectables.
- Naryu’s Journal, a full-color, large-format art book chronicling the assassin’s pursuit of a conspiracy across Tamriel.
- The Dwarven Colossus Statue, a 12″ tall replica of the Colossus you saw in the announcement trailer and will encounter in the new Trial, the Halls of Fabrication.
- A full cloth map of Morrowind.
- A special metallic game case bearing the marks of Vivec and the Tribunal.
Digital Collector’s Edition ($79.99)
This edition includes the Discovery Pack, the Elder Scrolls Online base game, plus the following unique in-game items.
- An exclusive grey-colored War Bear to fight by your side when you play as a Warden.
- An Armored War Horse mount, fashioned with – you guessed it – horse armor, featuring ancient Dwarven plate.
- Your own personal Dwarven Spider pet.
- A Morag Tong armor converter, so you can customize your gear with the distinct style of the Morag Tong.
- A bundle of character emotes that will aid you in celebrating victories against your opponents.
Digital Collector’s Edition Upgrade ($59.99)
This is a pre-order bonus offer. If you already own ESO, you can still obtain the in-game items described above in addition to the Discovery Pack and Morrowind itself by choosing this upgrade.
Standard Edition ($59.99)
Pre-ordering this edition will net you the Discovery Pack, plus the full Elder Scrolls Online base game.
Morrowind Upgrade ($39.99)
If you’re just looking for Morrowind and already own ESO, this upgrade is what you’re looking for. Don’t forget if you pre-order, you’ll still get all the items from the Discovery Pack!
The Morrowind expansion takes place in Vvardenfell, the largest zone to be added to ESO so far. VVardenfell utilizes the same geographic footprint as The Elder Scrolls 3, including all key points of interest from the classic game. Players will embark on a journey through legendary locales in Vvardenfell, 700 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls 3. This includes the docks of Seyda Neen, the volcanic Ashlands, the mushroom-filled forests, and Vivec City, still under construction in this time period.
New Class: Warden
Harness nature-based magic to master the powerful new character class. The Warden is the first new class since launch and 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 new combat ally – the War Bear – a ferocious fighter will stay by the Warden’s side through the most intense battles.
New PVP: 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.
