Elder Scrolls Online welcomes players back to Vvardenfell in the new Morrowind expansion! Along with adding a massive new zone, the expansion adds a new class, a new PvP mode, and a 12-player Trial dungeon. Furthermore, whether you are level one or at the cap, all players can enjoy the additional 30 hours of story the expansion brings to the game.
A trailer for Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind came with the announcement:
ZeniMax Studios provided further details on the expansion:
Once you arrive in Vvardenfell, you’ll find even more of the gripping lore and compelling storylines you’ve come to expect from Skyrim and other Elder Scrolls games. This sweeping adventure is set 700 years prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls III, with Vvardenfell facing imminent obliteration. In order to save the world, you’ll need to befriend a legendary Morag Tong assassin to help Vivec, the fabled warrior-poet and Guardian of Vvardenfell, regain his strength and protect Morrowind from ultimate destruction. Here’s what else you can look forward to in the latest Chapter of ESO…
Head Back to Vvardenfell, Our Biggest New Zone Yet
With the same geographic footprint as The Elder Scrolls III, the island of Vvardenfell includes all key points of interest from the classic game. Players will visit legendary locales throughout Vvardenfell, from the docks of Seyda Neen to the volcanic Ashlands, to dense forests of towering mushrooms, all the way through to the wizard enclave of Sadrith Mora.
Our First New Class: The Warden
The Warden lets you harness nature-based magic and introduces a devastating new combat ally — the War Bear. As always, you’ll have the freedom to select skills to develop the Warden to your liking, enabling a variety of play styles. Set out with your fur-ocious War Bear and conquer the toughest challenges!
Battlegrounds: A New Fast-Paced 4v4v4 PvP Mode
Our new Battlegrounds PvP mode will introduce fast-moving, three-team battles in smaller, arena-like environments. ESO’s existing open-world PvP battles in Cyrodiil will remain, but now you can head to the Ashlands to showcase your close-quarter combat skills and declare yourself the greatest fighter in all of Tamriel!
The expansion has a physical and digital collector’s edition (shown at the top). Players who preorder early get access to a collection of goodies in the Discovery Pack. Elders Scrolls Online: Morrowind releases on Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 6th.
